Writer's Block: Toys in the attic

Did you have a favorite toy as a child that you took with you everywhere? If so, what was it and what happened to it?


I had a large orange teddy bear. Not a Steiff or anything special, just a squashy bear. I took that bear everywhere apart from school. My younger sister had a squirrel. We visited northern Europe when me and her were very small and stayed in a guesthouse in Denmark (I think). Me and my younger sister left our bear and squirrel behind and my father had to drive about 100 miles back from Germany to fetch them.

Funnily enough I have no idea where he is today. My father had a bit of a moment before he moved to China and disowned us, and emptied the entire attic of all our childhood things, so no doubt he ended up in a landfill somewhere. Luckily I am not very sentimental.

I still have my first teddy which I got from my grandparents for my 3rd birthday. He's called Jim and he's a magic bear because when my kids had nightmares I would give them Jim, tell them he was a special teddy who only made children happy and they used to go to sleep and were nightmare free :D

Strangely they still argue over who should get him in my will!
