i was discussing with my 5yr old boy last night,how old his bedtime teddy is, It is an Andrex puppy soft toy that i used to have as a kid, its got to be a good 35yr old now and i gave it to my son a couple of years back and explaind how much i loved him when i was little, like any boy i trashed most toys, but this was a toy my nanna :heart: got me, i can't even remember if she sent for it free but after she died i looked after that dog like no other toy. and it nearly fills me up when my son says he is taking good care of it, and asks questions about if it kept me company in bed etc. he is a little sod and wrecks most things, but not this teddy. it still is and has always been called Andrex too, and one day it would be nice to think my lad will pass it down to his kids.

have any of your childhood toys lasted the this long, or even do you still have a toy that was passed down from your parents from thier childhood ? theres loads of toys i have wrecked over the years that i wish i still had to pass down, it would be interesting to see if they palyed with them as much as we did, or wether after 2 minutes they would want to go back on a computer game.

Blimey Leaky, that's brilliant that he's looking after something special to you, mate. I'm well impressed, so that's a coke for Rohan:beer:

I've got loads of stuff from my past in a set of drawers and every few months or so I have a really good look in them and get some very powerful memories of happy times with the smells and just holding things and remembering what I was doing around that time:cool:
