Can you still remember the toy you can't resist having during your childhood. It's like yo're crying when you dont have that toy? Well i did, mine was Barbie dolls. Im so into it that almost all my stuffs were Barbie. From my school bag, pencils, notebook, eraser, pencilcase, everything! Actually,I got more than a dozen of barbie dolls. i love playing with them as if they were all alive. But most of my dolls got short hair because i always cut their hair. haha! I had a dream before of having my own salon so when i am playing with my dolls, it's like they were my customers. How 'bout you?

for me, barbie dolls were my first toys when I was young, I love dressing them up, cause my sisters and I always arranged for beauty pageants for barbie,indeed it's so cool and at the same time, we get to bond with each others. barbie rocks!.. ;D

Plastic toy soldiers were my favourite and I was playing very often with them; and of course metal cars. Don't think I am more mature now. These days I collect metal soldiers and electric trains, HO scale.

I used to have this ugly orange teddy that I used to love. I was in and out of hospital with asthma a lot when I was younger and everytime I had to go, I would take this teddy. The nurses used to laugh at it because it was so ugly.

Hehe. Well it's good that through this discussion you were able to reminisce your happy childhood days with your toys. 12? Would you believe that i stop playing with toys when i was 16? haha! 4 years older than you. When i was in highschool, i love playing the kitchen set because i wanted to learn how to cook but never got the chance because my mom cooks for us.

As a girl my mom wanted me to play with dolls but I didn't like them because they would just get torn up by my brothers so I just played with their G.I. Joes when they wheren't around or looking I would sneek them in my room and act like they where dolls. So my best toy was the G.I. Joes because I could make my brothers mad and use my imagition while making my brothers mad too.

My Lego and my Vtech. But these two were before my playstation days. I loved my Legos so much back then. I used to create robots and houses with them. Then sometimes I invite my friends and we role-play our characters, creating a town with each of us having a role and a job. We usually combine the Legos with Play-dohs (which we use as foods for our characters). Once I created an elaborate structure and then threw it in the tub to create, what else? Atlantis. My Vtech was my mum's reward for a good job at school. It was special to me because it was hard-won. It's just too bad that kids these days no longer enjoy the same toys that we did. They prefer visual and audio ones now than the physical toys. My younger cousins would rather spend time at the PC than play my old legos.

Thanks for the response. Hehe. I can remember when my dad bought me jackstone for a job well done in school. It happens all the time. It's true that children nowadays would rather spend their time in PC than playing toys.

I used to love those toys also. Cause my younger brother had those toys before and i got amazed. haha! Though i don't have cars of my own, i used to play with my brother with cars. We used to race the remote cars he had. I think he had three of them in different colors. And my favorite was the red one.

I'm dating myself, but my favorites were leggos and Gi Joes (the large ones). Now that I have kids of my own, I get to play with them again! However, its a littler harder when the girls put a dress on the Gi Joe!!! At least the boys don't do that...lol

when i was a child, the most coveted toys for girs is a plastic doll which can close and open its eyes, and the hands and legs can be moved in a manner that we want them to look like. say, i can raise its hands and i can arrange the feet as though in a walking stance.

I used top have a huge doll. I like that very much. I also like the toys from heman series. I also like dolls very much. It is wonderful to see a toy house with lots of dolls and toys in it. May be I am too grown up right now. In the future after I get married and have children, I am looking forward to have some toys of my own along with my child. It was always my dream to have a big doll house or toy house with lots of toys and dolls.

My favorite toys were my little ponies :) The really old ones from the 80s. I still have them somewhere, and some are worth alot of money (a couple hundred for some of the rare mail order ones, etc). I had like 200-300 my little ponies. I have a picture somewhere (god knows where) of me sitting on the floor as a little girl with just tons of ponies surrounding me in a giant circle lol. Then when I was in like middle school, I got into "Littlest Pet Shop" I had probably ALL of them. The new ones are soooo ugly, ugly faces, the old ones looked more like realistic animals they were neat because they had magnets and you could play with them in their cages or whatever. XD I also remember my teddy ruxpin and alf and snoopy and various other talking dolls. I never used to like barbie. My aunt bought me my first barbie when I was like... hmm 10-12 somewhere in there, but I never cared much for dolls, then I hit my late teens/early twenties and now I think they're neat :) I'm more into the asian ball joint dolls, but now I love barbie and bratz and stuff too hehe. When I was little I was quite the tomboy and I loved model trains, matchboxes, race cars, dominos, board gaames, etc. My favorite toy of all time though is my videogames :) Been playing since atarii and I swear I'll never outgrow it :) Over two decades worth of games now :) I have quite the collection :) hehe
