A Childhood Toy (Jan. 2016)
Describe a special toy you had in your childhood.
You should say:
what it was
who gave it to you
how often you played with it (or, how you played with it) *
and explain why it was special for you.
I remember that when I was young, I was keen on watching the cartoon called “The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh”, so much that I kept pestering my father for the stuffed bear Winnie the Pooh. Finally, my father gave me one as a present for my 6th birthday.When I got this toy, I jumped for joy and even paid no attention to my other presents.
This stuffed bear was, incredibly, identical to the character in the cartoon I had watched.He also had a short red shirt and was holding a jar of honey which was his favorite food. Therefore, I felt as if he had come from the movie.
Since then, I considered him my closest friend and I couldn’t go anywhere without him, even when I went to sleep. Every day, I talked with the bear and told him about my daily routine.Unfortunately, I lost the bear at an amusement center, which made me cry for almost a week. At that time, I felt like I had lost a good friend who I could share everything with.
At present, whenever I watch this cartoon or see any photos of Winnie the Pooh, all the wonderful memories about him are brought back. Thanks to the bear, I experienced a happy childhood.
