Disadvantages The one's that broke!
Top Ten Toys From My Childhood!The other night me and my brother sat down and watched Beavis and Butthead Do America, we hadn't seen it for such a long time and wanted a bit of a laugh. After the film finished we started talking about how much we use to love Beavis and Butthead when we were younger and then started talking about some of the things we used to watch on tape. One subject lead to another and we soon got onto talking about some of the toys and puppets we used to like, believe me...if you're around me and my brother too long we can be quite embarassing to be around especially when were talking about Sooty & Sweep, Button Moon, Fireman Sam and Rainbow.
My brother would sit there and say to me "I would love to get all those series of Button Moon on DVD" and then he would start signing "WERE OFF TO BUTTON MOON" and I would say next "Have we still got all those Sooty & Sweeps on tapes". I'm 26 and my brother is 27 and we still love that kind of thing (we still don't there and watch them though we haven't got the time) it brings back memories of our childhood. These kind of shows we used to watch all the time when we were little, when you've been brought up with something as a child you tend to look back and think...these were a classic I always use to love sitting there for hours and hours watching this show.Soon enough, we started talking about some of our old toys we used to love and play with when we were young, some of them I even took out with me just because I was attached to them. It got me thinking about my childhood past again and how some of those things made me feel happy and kept me quite for hours, so I thought...what I'm going to do now is write a about some of my favourite childhood toys and share out some of those fond memories. Some of these toys I've still got somewhere proberly up in the loft in a box, but these were the toys that kept me entertained for ages...
1. Sooty & Sweep puppets:These were my favourite things ever when I was younger I use to treat them like my little friends, I loved putting them on my hands and doing all the actions. I would pretend to be Matthew Corbett and play out scenes of Sooty & Sweep and my brother used to pretend he was a friend of Matthews (a special new character called Pete...I don't know who Pete is we just made him up) crazy I know but we would act out for hours and in the six weeks school holiday sometimes we'd be there all day.
We used to do what any other little kid with a puppet would do and that's play with them and trying do the noises to them. When I had Sooty on my hand I used to make out he was whispering in Matthew's ear and when I had Sweep on my hand I used to go "WEEP! WEEP!" that used to drive my parents mad. Me and my brother used to share a room (we don't now though) and we used to take it in turns sleeping with Sooty & Sweep...sorry how that may of sounded...don't worry nothing happened.It's like...when your that age and you have a favourite cuddly toy you want to sleep cuddling it for comfort, I'm sure everyone some point in there lives used to sleep with a cuddly toy or comfort blanket (I've never had a comfort blanket by the way but I do know one or two people who have) I never used to let Sooty & Sweep out of my sight and when I weren't looking after them my brother was, he used to have one of them on he's hand and I used to have the other on mine.
