Toy Koala

In Fun

 My Great-Aunt and Her Love of Toys

By Luna Lerario-Geller

     A toy koala from Australia was bought in Brazil by my great-aunt Dorote. She loved toys so much that she had a collection of toys. My mom, Ana remembers how much she loved going to her house. It got passed down from my great aunt to only my mom, but almost all the kids have played with it for two generations!

     Every time my mom went to my great aunt's house she had so much fun playing with the toy koala and the other toys with her aunt. Even though I never got to know her really well l still miss her. She was 94 when she passed away and still loved toys as much as when she was young.
