“Want to play mass?” This is what my siblings and I asked one another.
(re-enactment, actual family not pictured.)
I was the kid that got the cool toy about 4 years after it was cool, just enough time for it to finally end up at a garage sale. The Light Bright, the Atari, and the walkie talkies. I don’t necessarily feel like my childhood was deprived of toys because we made do with what we had, but I did hold a place in my heart for those special items that I missed out on and never got.
