Week 7: Toys. What was your favorite childhood toy? Is it still being made in some form today?
To single out one favourite toy as a Kid for me is an easy one. It was Alf. The brown Alien from 80's TV series Alf. My Grandmother bought me a soft toy of him in about 1987. I used to love the show when I was about 4-ish. If you've heard of the show then you'd probably know that they don't make them anymore nor the TV series. Well, not here at least. I don't know about anywhere else in the world. I still have him now, 24 years later. But now I think about it, you might not class it as a Toy but I thought it would be worth a mention, but when I was about 5 years old I was given a book called 'The Velveteen Rabbit'. Which was my favourite book at that age and it's one of the Books that helped me learn to read and helped me to love reading. It was given to me my Aunt for my 5th Birthday.
