When I was growing up, I had 3 favourite things before I reached the age of 5. These are:
- a picture of a sad looking beagle on my wall of my bedroom
- a plastic black and white Mickey Mouse Club House (early 1970s)
- and a red metal tricycle
The red metal tricycle was there after my mother left my father as I remember riding it when I did go over to my father's to visit. My father kept putting new things on it like paint and wheels. However, once he considered me too big for it, it too disappeared and I never saw it again.
This is what the tricycle looked like minus the bell and plastic tassels.
How sad is it the things I used to have as favourites are all gone from my life.
Other mentionable items are:
The plastic Hawaiian Punch or Kool Aid cups we got for free (once you saved up the barcodes from the packages and sent them in). I loved these... each day it was great to see which ones I would get to use. Below are the different ones in the collection. Again, one my mother left my father, these all disappeared never to be seen again.
The wooden toboggan which my brother used growing up which then got passed down to me. My nieces and I used to use it together (as there was just me and its not very fun for just one person) and we used to be able to get us all down the hill at once. This was given to me when I was older (between the ages of 7-11). I know I used it until we all couldn't fit on it any longer. I'm not sure what happened to it either.
|It looked a bit like this one but the cord that runs down the sides was blue and red.|
