    Hi-my favorite toy is our Wii that we bought last year! Everyone in our family can use it and it has a lot of games that all of us can play together or by ourselves. (and my favorite game to use with it is Bowling)

  2. Linda Kish says:

    I liked my son’s star wars toys

    I happen to play a lot with my girls´toys (with them of course) and people say that my girls like Hello Kitty and Polly Pockets because of me! I don´t think so but I admit I specially love a Hello Kitty burger shop that is from my childhood and now they have it.

    Thanks for this opportunity, my girls keep wanting a pet but I can´t have one yet so this hamster would come very very handy!
