My first toyMy first toy was a big box of legos. It was when I was 7 or 8. I remember it clearly because I was really happy. “A toy is an object for a child to play with” (google dictionary). When I used to visit other people’s houses I saw that their kids had many toys. They had big doll houses, cars, plushes, a cooking set, etc. I used to not really care but in reality it made me feel sad. My godsister used to always come over and she always brought toys. We used to play all day long until her mom got off from work. Now that I’m older I have questioned myself as to why my parents have never bought me one. I remember that I didn’t use to talk to my siblings at all, I was always silent. They played together but they didn’t include me because I was 6 years younger than them, so I just had to watch T.V. My mom always watched novelas so I never got the chance to see any cartoons at all. Back to my big box of Lego’s I remember that I was scared to ask my dad because he always answered with a no. I also thought that the box was expensive since it was big but it turned out that it was just 16$. I remember opening the box with my brother and we threw all of the Lego’s on the table. We started to build right away, we built a plane, a car, and a house. I felt so happy.
