What was your favorite toy as a child?
I was a very creative and musical kid, and my brown 1980's Fisher Price tape recorder went a long way with me. I composed songs with my best friends and cousin, and then we recorded them. The theme of our songs were completely random. I remember "Los Chocolates Bañados en Oro" (The Gold-Covered Chocolates), "Los Pájaros Castaños" (The Auburn Birds), and "La Fiesta en la Choza" (The Shack Party). My brother usually played a little toy piano flute in the background while we sang. Once we even sold one of those tapes to a girl in our class!
