Sample answer 1:
I remember that when I was young, I was keen on watching the cartoon called
“The many adventures of Winnie the Pooh”, so much that I kept pestering my father for the
stuffed bear Winnie the Pooh. Finally, my father gave me one as a present for my 6th
birthday. When I got this toy, I jumped for joy and even paid no attention to my other
This stuffed bear was, incredibly, identical to the character in the cartoon I had
watched. He also had a short red shirt and was holding a jar of honey which was his favorite
food. Therefore, I felt as if he had come from the movie.
Since then, I considered him my closest friend and I couldn’t go anywhere without
him, even when I went to sleep. Every day, I talked with the bear and told him about my daily
routine. Unfortunately, I lost the bear at an amusement center, which made me cry for almost
a week. At that time, I felt like I had lost a good friend who I could share everything with. At
present, whenever I watch this cartoon or see any photos of Winnie the Pooh, all the
wonderful memories about him are brought back. Thanks to the bear, I experienced a

One special toy that I remember getting was a Lego car. It was a birthday present
from my parents. I can't remember exactly how old I was, but I was probably about 10 or 11.
The special thing about this car was that I had to build it myself out of hundreds of
pieces of Lego. The pieces came in a box with a picture of the finished car on the front, and
I had to follow step-by- step instructions to put all the pieces together in the correct way. This
wasn't an easy task because the car even had an engine, movable seats and gears. It took me a
day or two to make, and required a lot of concentration.
When the car was finished it looked great, and I felt a sense of accomplishment. I
seem to remember that I didn't play with the car very much; the fun part had been the process
of building it.
Sample answer 3:
I have had many toys in my childhood during the different phases of life. Be it
barbie dolls or the cars or for that matter the Kitchen set!! However, among them all, the one
that I preferred was my teddy bear. There were so many times in childhood that I felt like
talking to someone and it was my teddy bear I always find my solace in.
I think just like most other kids even I found it funny. I remember, my mother got
me a teddy bear for my birthday. It was so different from other stuffed bears. It was so much
more fluffy and it was huge. Also, the colour , well I was in love with that bear. He was just
like a friend I would talk to and have fun with. There have been endless stories that I have
shared with him. And then he has been there when I used to cry.
There were so many days I had a fight with my mother or my brother and when
nothing worked out, I used to simply go out and vent my anger into the bear. Apart from it,
me and my friends used to bring their teddy bears along with them and we used to have fun
laughing and fighting with or dressing up our bears.
I think the one reason I was in love with the teddy bear was because it made me feel
at home. There were no fears with it, no chance of any scolding. It could keep all my secrets
and I could just carry on with life, enjoying every bit of it.
