TOYS FROM THE DAY

TOYS FROM THE DAY

A Story by Justin
"

Toys that I grew up playing with and how I was able to use my imagination :)

"
When I was growing up in the 1990s, toys were totally different from toys today. I was big into legos, gi joe, power rangers, and many more toys.
Gi Joe was the king. He even had this own tv cartoon show. I use to dress them up with different clothes. I would give them different things like weapons, clothes, boots, and helmets. I had a case to put all that stuff in. I was able to use my imagination when I played with them. I would send hours playing with them.

Legos were something that you could build anything with, whether it is buildings, creatures, and many more awesome things. There were different sets and you could play with them together. There was dinosaurs, Star Wars, and many more awesome sets. I would send hours playing them and never get bored. I even had the lego magazine and take the ideas from the magazine and put them together to make something awesome into my awesome creation.

I noticed that many of the toys today, dont have that kind of stuff. To me, they also take away from the kids using their imagination. That is my opinion. I think that is one of the most important things that kids need to have is their imagination.

Thanks for listening.

thanks :) :) :) i agree with you :)
Ii believe in encouraging the use of imagination for all children...i provided my daughter with pens and paper and read to her often...she now writes some very fine stories...the most memorable thing my mother told me was..."boredom is the disease of a lazy mind"...she encourage creative use of our minds and we were never bored...i agree with your words about toys and the imaginative use of them...legos were very good for that...thank you for sharing...

Great stuff. Although I played more with Girly toys lol Still a great poem. Toys aren't what they used to be are they? Imagination used to rule

what an adorable puppy, my neighbor just bought one just like it, so cute they named it Jasper. I agree with the sentiments here, toys were built more back then for development, today it is more to occupy attention.

Great job. I feel like I've been put into your past. I can feel your missing of them. You know what? You're never too old to feel like a kid again! Get those Legos out and build something new! Using your imagination is something powerful. The best creators have used their imaginations! Great work on this writing and keep writing!
