    I hated Barbie, I thought they were a waste of my time. I liked things that kicked ass

    My dad always brought me toys that typically " boys" would play with. Like G.I Joe(s), train sets, flying heli's . etc.


    these were my favourite when I was a kiddo.....


    EDIT:

    OMFG I can't believe I forgot to add in LEGOS!

    OH AND


    Chess. I was undefeatable as a child... I don't know what happened there hahahaha

    ummm... yeah, I had toys, but usually didn't play with them- I grew up on a farm with a forest, creek and pond and that was a lot more interesting
    ya, I grew up on a sort of "farm-thing" as well....

    although, instead of bow and arrow, I was more of the professionally-self-made " sling-shot" kinda gal.

    Books - I was honestly usually reading, but if I wasn't:
    Lincoln Logs
    She-Ra action figures
    Board games / card games
    Random things I would incorporate into my imaginary play

    ^Loved the same things:

    Books were my #1.
    Lincoln Logs
    My record player
    Micro Machines, especially the color changing ones
    Transformers
    Magic 8-Ball
    Shoe boxes for building models
    Light Bright
    Chemistry kits
    Tools around the house for making traps and simple machines
    Robots
    WWF Action figures with the ring
    Skip-it
    Teddy Ruxpin
    Gameboy and Super NES

    Very rarely, I'd play with a doll to cut their hair or something.

    I feel very old reading all of these

    Books were my favourite, then Meccano, a cat's whisker crystal radio made for me by my grandfather who was a radio engineer in the days before transistors and microprocessors, and oddly, my grandmother's button collection that I used to sort and re-sort according to shapes, colours and sizes, but most of all my imagination.

    I read from age 3 and my favourite stories were myths and legends from other lands. I apparently woke my mother on my 5th birthday reciting Hiawatha.

    My poor mum taught me to read early because I always wanted to know "why?" so as soon as I could read she bought me a children's set of encyclopedia and thereafter her answer to my "why?" was "go and look it up!"

    I must have been a trial as a child

    Books. Books. Books. During my preteen years, I got banned from extraneous reading because my parents and teachers were under the impression it was interfering with my studies even though I still managed to be in the top 20% of the class.

    I lost count of the number of times I was told that I would top the class if only I paid half the attention to my schoolwork that I did to my precious novels and encyclopaedias.

    Whatever other toys I got, I could be sure of one thing; my two ISTP brothers would take them apart within a day or two.

    OH YES! I FORGOT ALL ABOUT MY GAMEBOY ADVANCED!!!!
    INTJ | 5w4 - Sp/Sx/So | 5-4-(9/1) | RLoEI | Melancholic-Choleric | Johari & Nohari

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    #1 Lego
    #2 Meccano


    (Power)tools (My grandparents had a shed full of them, I was making my own wooden toy guns when I was 8 years old, which brings us to the following
    Toy Guns
    Puzzles
    Football (not the stupid American kind)
    Paper planes (I was always perfecting them)
    RC car (my little brother had a cool one with such big wheels it could flip upside down and still keep riding.)

    I would be lying if I say that my primary source of entertainment wasn't this

    Since it was the only thing that made me feel at home.



    Other toys: legos and chess for the most part.
