    Common childhood interests you did not have

    The question isn't well worded, but basically, I am wondering about what "play" behaviour you exhibited as children which was atypical: More specifically, what activities did your peers perform but you didn't care about at all? I am mainly thinking about ages 10 and under. When I was a kid, I...

    Washing old stuffed toys

    There is an old teddy bear at home that could really use a soak. It's dusty, a bit dirty and who knows how many germs are in the fur. The thing is, it's also quite old (more than 20 years I think) and holds a great sentimental value to the family, so I wouldn't want to damage it by accident...

    What does it mean??

    I have a friend who has autism. She likes to take all of her toys out of the plastic bins they're in and put them on the floor every once in a while. When asked to clean up, she is compliant.

    Smallish stuffed animals

    I thought I'd make an inventory of all the types of smallish stuffed animals I know/can think of. Small, tiny stuffed animals have always been one of my favorite kinds, b/c I have always needed to carry at least one in my hand/backpack/pocket/shoulder bag in order to feel safe, calm, comfortable...

    Nostalgic over Beanie Babies

    I have realized that lately I've become nostalgic about Beanie Babies...the ones I grew up with as a kid in the 90s and 2000s. As I've said probably more than once at this point, the newer "Beanie Boos" are kinda cute - I have a few of the more realistic and fuzzy ones, in fact. :) But I miss...

    Construction Sets

    Out of all the toys that exist out there, I consider construction sets as my favorite type of toy. There many different type of construction offered by many brands. Everyone should be very filmier with the Lego brand. The first Lego line I like a lot of Technic. This line been around since...
