“One day you were brought into the world, knowing love only as being our toys, family and friends. Then you meet someone who alter your conception of love, and you never knew how you loved anything before because this kind of love is.”– Author Unknown.

Ahhh spring cleaning and purging time… one never knows what you might unearth. I was pulling out tubs that contained what I thought was tax papers and kinda important stuff that was buried in a bin under a table. Well much to my surprise and joy (to NOT have it be boring papers) were toys from Kurt and Deena’s world of play.

It just made me smile. These tell of a joyful carefree time. Hours spent playing Masters of the Universe or Go-bots…lining up all the Barbie dolls along with the neon haired Troll dolls. Kurt used to play “search and destroy” with his set ¬†dinosaurs, while Deena would place them in order from tall to small with an assortment of necklaces on every other one. It was fun to watch their imaginations come to life, these toys helped mold their future careers.

I must confess I probably get more of a kick out of finding these then my kids did. I guess it is the story teller in me that remembers vividly the ages and stages this pile of plastic represents. I will clear a spot for these treasures to save for the next generation to play with. The heck with cars, jewels and china…bring on the toys!
