Have you ever wandered into a vintage market or a junk shop and found your doll or teddy bear you have been missing since you were six years old? Well, of course, it wasn't the very same one but one exactly like it. (Mine had been left at Mountain Home Air Force Base were we lived until I was six years old.) I'm sure everyone's got a story like that ~ toys from our childhood can zap a memory like nothing else can! Otherwise, why would we cling to our old falling-apart teddy bears or the silly play things of our childhood??
Some of us have made up our minds that dolls, teddy bears, play-houses, tea sets, paper dolls, Curious George, and Mickey Mouse are always okay to have around all the time for inspiration, fantasy, humor, and comfort!
Age doesn't matter!!
