ASK! Find five people today that will answer the question, "What was your favorite toy from childhood?" BONUS: Look for an incredibly grumpy person...a partner, a child, a student, a grocery clerk, the barista who has made one too many multi-tagged drinks...and ASK them. I'd bet my Barbie collection that you make their day!
DOUBLE BONUS: Ask and then find one of the games/toys you talked about...and play. As weird as it sounds...there's something magically wonderful about crashing trucks, playing Barbie, stacking Legos or Lincoln Logs, reenacting a critical battle with soldiers, or staying calm in the middle of Chutes and Ladders.
Ask. Play. Enjoy. You're welcome.
