My Favourite Childhood Toys

Do you have a few minutes? Because this list could go on forever.

For my first list, I've chosen toys that can be categorized under dolls and stuffed animals.
1. Cabbage Patch Doll (I named him T.J.)
2. Curious George (This was my brother's but I had fun playing with it nonetheless.)

Okay, so that was a short list. Ready for the next category?

These toys can be categorized under machines.
1. Transformer (More than meets the eye, it's a robot in disguise.)
2. Tonka Trucks (The big ones that you could sit on.)
3. Colour Changers (Please be advised, you might want to wait a bit before sticking your tongue on these after they've been in the freezer.)

I promise, the lists do get longer.

The next category is sports and leisure.
1. Hula Hoop
2. The Jumbo Bubble maker (I don't quite recall the name but I do remember having a ball making bubbles.
3. The Ball in Circle thingy (This consisted of something that looked similar to an inverted wheel rim. The goal was to spin a ball in it as fast as you could.)
4. PogoBall (You know, that watchamacallit that looked like Saturn.)

Ready for the largest list of all? Pull up a chair and stay a while. I might go on forever...

2. Head-to-Head Perfection
