Talk about a toy you liked in your childhood

How often did you play with it
Well, that’s a lot of nostalgia! I have been fortunate enough to have a very affectionate and caring family. I was privileged to have played with a lot of toys in my childhood, some of which were very expensive.
Nevertheless, one toy which is still very close to my heart is a giant teddy bear that was gifted to me by my father when I was all of 8 years of age. At that time, the teddy bear seemed to be even larger than me. As a matter of fact, it was a surprise gift for me on my 8th birthday and I was on cloud nine. I opened this gigantic box and out came a teddy bear in sky blue colour, my favourite colour. I was so happy that I started to fanatically show it to everybody present at the party, my friends, family and relatives.
Eventually, it became very close to me and I would comb it once in a while to keep the hairs from spoiling. Besides, I used to even sleep with it while cuddling. I used to keep it carefully in my cupboard, getting paranoid that someone should snatch it from me.
Life seemed to be incomplete without that toy and it still is. As silly as it sounds, I still have it in my cupboard and it is till date one of my most prized and cherished possessions.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
