What was your favourite toy at 5 years old? At 10?

I can’t really remember, but I think I was around 5 when I had a pound puppy toy that I really loved.  By the time I was 10 I was a big fan of Sylvanian families.

Remembering Childhood // Vie Choufleur

It’s that time of week when another blogger is going to be sharing their childhood memories. This week it’s from Halina from Vie Choufleur.

Which decade were you born in?
The 1980s
What is your earliest memory? How old were you?

I think I was either a very late 2 or a very early 3. I was playing on my tricycle (do they even make those anymore?!) in our back garden and with the brilliantly stubborn logic of a toddler decided to try to ride said tricycle UP the steps towards the back door. Needless to say that didn’t go particularly well and I fell off.

What was your favourite toy at 5 years old? At 10?

It’s hard to remember being 5. At 10 my favourite toy was probably most likely one of my Barbies…yep, I was a Barbie girl! I had SO many, although my favourite was the mermaid Barbie who came with hair down to her ankles. At 5…I remember adoring my Lego, so so much. I used to play Lego for HOURS. I can’t wait until my son is old enough to do that (because I’ll be joining in/taking it over…).

Do you still have any toys from your childhood?

What is your earliest memory? How old were you?

It has to be my little sister sat in her high chair screaming her head off and then putting her dinner on her head! It was sausage and mash and she squished it all in her hair, I was about 3 and a half I think.

What was your favourite toy at 5 years old? At 10?

I had a blue fluffy soft toy called Chiggles, when you clapped your hands its eyes lit up and it made a laughing sound. I say laughing but it sounded more like a demented robot. At 10 I loved my Poochie, which was a pink and white dog.

What is your earliest memory? How old were you?

I think my earliest memory is my aunt and uncle’s wedding. I was five, and wore a peach dress with puffy sleeves and loose ribbons, borrowed from a friend. My only memory of the day is my gran being helped down some steps to a car; I think I was worried she would fall. I vaguely remember a conga line from the reception too!
