I didn't have too many, maybe 5 or 6. lol of course, it was the wrong decade, yet, for girls to play with toys meant for boys. Can't even remember how I got them, certainly not as presents. lol maybe I found them at the beach or the park. lol
Lol! I had dozens of them! It was there like all over my room and I used to keep playing with them all day, obviously I wasn't studying much then. And I'm not surprised girls play with them either, I've seen a far too many girls play with them, myself. Hahah, yeah! You find many of them all around the beaches and parks too lol.
Well I'm only 11 so my "young childhood" was very long ago, but what I always did was gather household items and create traps and chain reactions and things like that. I also had alot of marbles, and I still have my stuffed monkey, Madi, when I got when I was 2. A 9 year old monkey
