Favorite Things

This question is from nine-year-old Taylor: “Did you have a favorite toy when you were little? Is it still your favorite? I had a favorite doll that I brought everywhere. I still love her and play with her every day. What’s your favorite toy?”

These girls shared their thoughts:

My grandmother bought me a doll. I love her so much and still play with her every day. She’s so pretty.

When I was little, my favorite toy was an action figure based on a character from my favorite movie.

I used to bring a stuffed animal mouse with me everywhere. I named him Mousie. I lost him a lot so my mom had eight backups of the same stuffed mouse!
