Recently I have spent an inordinate amount of money on Lego models. I am 24 years old. Now while this this makes me a very sad individual, I do have my reasons. Last year my parents home burnt to the ground and they lost everything - including all our childhood toys. As a kid I had an awesome Lego collection, though for the better part of the last decade they sat in a cupboard - assembled - but shut away and collecting dust nonetheless. However, knowing I'd lost all those little blocks of awesomeness sucked and I wanted them back. So I went on an ebay binge and bought up a whole heap of my favourite old models I used to have, as well as a few new ones for shits and giggles. After gleefully assembling them they're all now sitting in a cupboard again and will probably not see the light of day until someday when I have kids, but damnit I feel happy knowing I own all that plastic fantastic again. Focus: What was your favourite childhood toy and do you still have it, or how did you lose it? Still got Bobo the bear from when you were 3 or did your parents just give you an empty box to amuse yourself with? Any particular things you would want to ensure your own kids have? Alternatively: Do you collect anything and do you share details of this with friends/dates/coworkers?
