365 Writing Prompts: Toy Story

What was your favorite plaything as a child? Do you see any connection between your life now , and your favorite childhood toy.

I grew up in a large family, I didn’t have a plaything which solely belonged to me. We played with a variety of things, one of these was we’d stack up seven  flat stones one on top of the other   and with a tennis ball we tried to hit the stack and scatter the pieces of stones, we continued to play until all the stones were scattered if we missed a shot it would be the turn  of the next sibling.

Our best plaything was the board games,  Monopoly, Scrabble and one other  which I cannot remember.

We had a lot of fun playing , in the game of Monopoly, my eldest brother was always the banker, when he needed money to  keep playing, he’d take some when he thought we were not looking, but I caught him each time. We were very noisy  my mom said I was the loudest, I had to stop playing and help her with some chores.

I cannot see any connection with our game of Monopoly and my life now. I have the board games, I don’t play at all, I miss playing with my brothers. I’m not the noisy one even if we play once in a while. So there is no connection between life then and now.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this post about games. You mentioning the game, Monopoly, brings back childhood memories. I remember playing that game. I also remember how I enjoyed more going outside and climbing trees :-).

    All good wishes,
