Sunday Scribblings – Toys

Horatio Hornblower and a lovely dolls pram are the two toys I have from my childhood, oh, and a fluffy tiger that my brother gave me. These three things are very special to me. I didn’t get Horatio and the pram until I was 9 years old, which was a bit old really for that sort of toy. But it was the first year Mum ever worked so had some money to buy stuff, and she’d always wanted me to have a beautiful dolls pram. My daughter used the dolls pram too, and it is in the roof ready for the granddaughters that come along.

I was going to insert a pic of Horatio Hornblower here – he is a much loved teddy bear, about 2 foot long I guess, and patched and worn and still holds that same ‘teddy bear smell’ that he had … I can’t explain that … but it is a comforting smell. Not that long ago, I decided I wanted him out on the bed, but seeing him everyday wasn’t quite the same as having him put away and then finding him every so often and reminscing.

As my kids grew up I kept so many of their toys, I wanted them to keep for their grandkids etc …. my daughter is now 25 and on her last visit home …. we went through them all. She only kept a few things, and the things that I thought would have been her favourite … she didn’t care for too much !! Maybe they were MY favourite. She kept ALL her books though, she loves to read and will read anything.  So now, sitting not 3 feet away from me as I type are two boxes of toys that I am going to put on ebay …..

Now on the subject of  ‘big boys toys’ – I confess to telling hubby today “Ohhhh yes you ahve to buy it” when he found a TOY mustangcar (he collects mustang toys) that played ‘life is a highway’ and the car ‘dances’ … well how could you say NO to that …..

……………………. I wanna ride it all night long .………………………….



  1. Sounds like your thoughts on his prompt were similar to my first ones on it. My hubby collects cars too but scale models of Australian ones. Cute, albeit a bit expensive.

  2. Nice I never had that pram and bought one as an adult. I would love to see that dancing car

  5. I am not a collecter of toys. What I had I gave those away to my nephews and nieces!
