What was your favorite toy as a child?
My favorite toy changed with my interests, but one constant throughout my childhood was my coffee can full of treasures. Anything that was precious to me, I hid inside that can; puffy and scratch-and-sniff stickers, a collapsible camping cup, arrowheads, gumball machine prizes, collectible erasers, my Chinese jump rope, plastic charms with little jingle bells, a rabbit's foot, jelly bracelets—I almost die of nostalgia remembering it all.
