Daily Prompt: Toy Story

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

Our family members did not have a special toy for each of us. Yes we had board games, there was snakes and ladders and Monopoly.

Monopoly was my favorite, most of us could play it and there were  all kinds of tactic we used to win the game. It was not easy. The winning depended on what numbers we got when we rolled the dice. We did learn to count money buy and sell houses. We had a very enjoyable time.

I learned the art of saving and counting money and also buying and selling houses by playing Monopoly. In real life I neither became a ‘Real Estate’ agent nor an Accountant.

I settled for teaching which in a way helped the experience I got in playing Monopoly,i.e how to do things in a calm manner.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for sharing this post. We too played a lot of Monoply when growing up. Now, it seems I have too little time for it.

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • Dear Robert,
      There are too many things to take care of, childhood is the best time
      of one’s life, one can be so carefree, Mom preparing meals, Dad bringing in
      the money and kids spending time playing.What a delightful scenario! 🙂
