Topical and Nostalgic
I didn't like dolls, and generally I prefered toys that DID something, like Lego, but I never had any
I would have LOVED a train set, or Scalextric (sp?).
I did have a couple of teddy bears that I loved, one in particular. My mum knitted it for me, and at first I didn't like it because it didn't look like a proper teddy bear, but after a while I grew to love it.
Because it (OK, he!) was stuffed with kapok, he went all soft and floppy after a while (no sniggering at the back there!!), but I still loved him
I would've shared my lego with you Wilke - that was one toy we did have as my mother thought it was educational.
I did have educational toys like scrabble. But not toys that you could really play with.
Thank you Mouse
I did get to play with my friend Fiona's lego sometimes, but only when she felt like it - which was not often.
I don't know what my mother's objection to lego was - maybe she thought it was expensive.

My favourites were Etch a Sketch (and books, lots of books!) I was a nerd!
I did have a Spirograph, which I liked a lot. You could make cool pictures - I might see if you can still get them
