Sample Answer for cue card Talk about a toy you liked in your childhood
I had many toys in my childhood but here I am going to talk about my electric toy car. My father gifted it to me on my 11th birthday. I used to spend hours playing with it. I was greatly fascinated by it. It was red in colour.
It worked with four pen torch batteries fixed in a box under the car. When I switched it on, it would move in all directions. If there was an obstacle on the way then the car could change directions. Along with that it had lights, which flickered at times.
I was so fascinated by this car that I used to finish its batteries very soon. I used to show it to my friends with pride. None of my other friends had such a beautiful toy car. I just loved it when I saw the jealous look in their eyes. I remember, once I took it to school in my bag.
When I came home I got a big spanking from my mother. I was very possessive about my car and never used to let anyone touch it. Even though I don’t play with the car any more I still have it in my room. Its colour has faded now but it has emotional value for me.
That is why I have never thought of giving it away to my younger cousins. It brings back nostalgic memories of my childhood.
