There are many influences in our childhood that contribute to who we become as we get older. I think the toys we favour or become attached to when we are little affect us throughout our lives.
I still have my very first cuddly toy, who looks down on me in my study and judges my coding to this day. I have an obvious trait I associate back to it, in that I've always thought penguins were pretty damn cool.
He's 46, faded, down one eye, and has a lot of tea stains because he used to live on my desk in my old house which was regularly trashed by the cat. Sadly, I can't find the photo of him and I together in the early 70's
So, what was your favourite or first memorable toy when you were little? Do you think it has left a permanent impression on you?
