What is your earliest memory? How old were you?

I think I was 2, maybe 3 on my first family holiday abroad.

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

At 5 years old I had a rubber hand puppet of Ducky from The Land Before Time, I took her everywhere with me. At 10 years old, I was very much in to roller discos so adored my roller skates, they had different coloured wheels, I thought I was amazing.

Do you still have any toys from your childhood?

I still have my GameBoy.

Who was your favourite pop group/artist as a teenager?

Nirvana, I was your typical angsty teen.

What was your favourite TV show(s)?

As a child I was obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Thundercats and Captain Planet. As a teen it was Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

What was the first film you remember seeing at the cinema?

Home Alone, I was 5.

Do you have any dodgy haircut/ outfit memories that you’d rather forget?

In my teenage years it was all about the overly baggy jeans and excessive eyeliner.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I spent a large part of my childhood wanting to be a vet (or a ninja turtle).

If you could go back to being a child again what age would you choose and why?

I’d like to revisit my teenage years, I had a lot of awkward teenage moments so I think I could do a lot better a second time around.


Thanks for sharing your memories Karina – I love that furry hat, very 80s!! Do come back next week when another blogger will be remembering their childhood.
