What was your favorite toy as a child?
I liked my heavy-duty, "could be used as a weapon today," Sesame Street play + carry house with all the characters. They were hard plastic w/ round heads and you could stick your finger in the bottom of them and use them as puppets.
I also was very found of this black baby doll. His clothes were missing. I liked to feed him real peanut butter from a tiny spoon, so the little smiling opening that was his mouth was stuffed w/ crusty peanut butter. Pretty gross.
