    List one thing small item you kept on your person or carried around a lot as a child.

    A little orange change purse with a Niagara Falls image on the side. Obviously purchased at some Niagara Falls gift shop.

    I have my box full of Lego since I've been collecting since I was kid. I still use them to build stuff. Helps me to focus and decompress. Very therapeutic for me

    No particular "things" really. Just my dog. Got a puppy for my first birthday and had him with me for 17 years.

    I cant remember I used to brake all my toys two weeks after I got them. The only thing that lasted long enough was my Atari and my NES, not very small but i cant think of anything else really

    I have this 4-foot long pillow I've had since I was 3. Till this day, I've only spent a few nights without it. If i'm not straddling it, it's a lot harder to fall asleep. I can't imagine ever getting rid of it; I guess it's like a "security blanket" to me.

    You can go ahead and call me a big baby. icon_lol.gif

    A Pepe le Pew stuffed animal.... I lost it in a plane bridge while boarding, very depressing at the age of 3, especially since I can still remember getting off the plane without it balling my eyes out. Poor 3 year old me.

    Zelda was awesome! I never could beat the second part until well like 5 years ago when I decided get an emulator and rom.

    For me it has to be my power ranger toy

    I have an artillery shell from world war 1 that my grandfather brought home after baptising himself in the Jordan River. It just propped open their bedroom door. I didn't really carry it, or notice it, until he died and I was much older. Hey now!

    I still have my teddy bear on a shelf in my room. he was a hand-me-down from my eldest brother, which makes him over 50 years old now. He had lost a lot of stuffing but got "fattened up" again to his original bulk at the "Teddy Bear's Picnic" in Ottawa (Canada) at the "B*A*S*H tent (a teddy version of a M*A*S*H* tent staffed by actual doctors and nurses from the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario in a "surgery" performed in 1994.

    He is a much happier and healthy bear now. icon_wink.gif

    I had a blanket, too. Dragged that thing all over the place like Linus on Peanuts. My parents eventually hid it from me. I missed it horribly.

    A cassette tape onto which my cousin had copied all my favorite Madonna songs, as my mom wouldn't allow Prince or Madonna cassettes in our home.

    Nothing really. When I was very, very young I was allowed to take a stuffed rabbit toy with me on family vacations (named "Rabbie") and a stuffed Dachshund toy (called "Weiner"). But nothing on me in daily use. I think my parents discouraged such dependencies. To this day I have little interest in personal possessions, except to value them as an investment.
