Ice Breaker – Favorite Childhood Toy

Each week on The Stretched Blog, we ask an ice breaker question.  The questions are designed to help us get to know each other here in The Stretched Community.  I’ll provide my answer to the question here in the post, and then you can leave your response in the comments.  While you’re in the comments section, see how others answered the ice breaker question.

This week’s question is inspired by all the toys recently purchased for Christmas.  Are your kids still using them?  How many toys did you play with over the holidays?  Today’s Ice Breaker just might bring out the child in all of us.

Question:  What was your favorite childhood toy?  When was the last time you played with your childhood toy?

My Answer:  LEGOs.  My brother and I used to play with LEGOs for hours.  I used to build houses and castles with these little plastic blocks.  Perhaps, that was an early indication of my engineering future.  It has been a while since I’ve played with LEGOs.  It was probably a few years ago when my son was still playing with them.

There you have it – my answer.  Now, it’s your turn.  Answer this week’s ice breaker question by leaving a comment.  I look forward to reading your response!
