New Question of the Day

We are entering the holiday season and I have been pondering gift ideas. My 5 year old niece will be here for Christmas morning, so I've been scheming about toys. I thought it might be useful (and insightful) to ask the following.

What was your favorite toy as a child?

My absolutely favorite toy was a pogo stick. I could literally hop for hours on end. I have the distinct memory of hopping about on my squeeky pogo stick. Apparently my mom was trying to nap and she came running out of the house with butter in hand. She proceeded to grease my pogo stick with butter and silently return to the house. LOL She was definitely the kind of lady who would fix anything with duct tape.

Anyway, what was yours?


  1. That pogo stick butter story is funny! My faves were my Barbie townhouse & Barbie camper

  2. I have to say a new barbie was mine. My mom and sister would knit and make clothes for my barbies and give these as gifts to me!

  3. California Blue that is so cool! As you can see my mom was more of a duct tape kind of gal.
