I mean the title of the post to be somewhat quizzical because today’s writing prompt is “what was your favorite childhood toy?”
I am lucky enough to get these prompts the evening before I write them, so I have a little time to think about them.
And while I do remember quite a bit about my childhood, I can’t say that I really remember a favorite toy, in the way that some children have favorite dolls or bears. I had a few dolls, of course, but I don’t recall being inordinately attached to them.
I was probably more fond of my collection of Matchbox cars. As a girl, I always had the nicest looking ones, because I didn’t let mine get all muddy and rusty. It’s a shame that I wasn’t more attached to those! I understand that Matchbox cars of that vintage, shall we say, are now valuable.
