Do you still keep a special toy from your childhood?
Are you a very sentimental person – do you need to keep items to recall memories or are you a collector of items from the past?
I left my hometown years ago.
Last Monday the kids and I visited my parents for Christmas.
While I was looking for colored pencils in the closet, I happened upon a whole collection of so 80’s stuff. I have never been very attached to these items, but they recalled some great memories from childhood. I even felt nostalgic.
I found my old “Toison D’or Polycolor pencils 3822” Plus some used pencils – vintage and still beautiful! I put it back оn the shelve.
A Vintage “Smena Symbol” Camera – this was a surprise! It is even older than me!
The kids got excited after they found my stuffed bunny, carefully washed, instead of thrown away…I quite like finding stuffed toys that I used to play with 30 years ago. They are cute and soft.
My books. I used to read a lot. My friends and I didn’t have computers or phones so the books were our amusement.
They are very old but still, thinking about parting with these books that I’ve had and read since I was a kid (that I haven’t even thought about in years), pains me greatly. I still have an emotional attachment to them.
I also found my first drawings and paintings.
These art works are just cool to look at and remember. I don’t look at them for a long time and when I come back some years later I’m like, “I remember this! I painted it with tempera!” I guess, this is where my art career started from:
Do you still have any of your childhood toys/books?
If yes, do you have an attachment to them? Keeping them for your future kids? Or have you given them away? Sold them? Share your story in the comments below, Thank you!
