NaBloPoMo15: Toys R me

NaBloPoMo15 has started. This is my first of November. You will see new post every day. Hopefully. Let’s gets some toys out there. Which is the subject of today.

You would think, me being a girl my favorite toy would be a doll. But that’s where you are wrong. It wasn’t dolls, it was cars. Being a tomboy was more fun. Of course I had dolls too. But cars were my thing. That was the reason I loved the TV show Knight Rider. It was all because of the talking car, K.I.T.T. That was the coolest thing ever. I’ve seen a replica of it in real life. I even named one of my chimpanzee dolls after it, Kit.

My best friend at the time had one of those Cabbage Patch Kids dolls. But I didn’t want one of those. I wanted a remote-controlled car. All I got though was a remote-controlled car with a cord in it. I could have sworn I still have the car somewhere but I can’t find it anywhere. Otherwise I could have taken a photo of it to put in this post. Anyway, when you played with it, you had to follow it. When I saw kids having theirs where they could control the car from a far, I was a bit jealous.

Now as an adult, you see things in different perspective. If I had toys I wanted when I was a kid, they would just be somewhere collecting dust. They probably wouldn’t even work anymore. When parents buy toys to their kids, they should also think about the future. Those kids will grow up and all you have left are unnecessary stuff in your closets. The problem with toys are that it’s only fun for a while. It’s about quality and not quantity. It’s better to have just a few toys than a lot.
