Toys and Games........ for TIOT

The theme at Try It On Tuesday is Children.
It's seems so many hours are taken up sitting in front of the computer nowadays that a lot of children often miss out on good old fashion fun.
Todays page is a digital piece using one of my poems. There's a clearer version further down if you want to read it and have a  bit of a walk down memory lane.


Toys and Games 

Action man, Sindy and Barbie dolls,
Tiny tears, Gonks and dumpy Trolls,
Yoyo, Kaleidoscope and Hopscotch,
Wall walkers, Kerplunk and toy sweet shops. 
Space hopper, Clackers and Chopper Bike,
Scooters, Skates and three-wheel trike,
Headache, Frustration and Meccano Sets,
Cluedo, Ludo and plastic Alphabets. 
Lego worlds and wooden building blocks,
Wendy house with no door locks,
Little toy furniture, food and Tea services,
Tiny outfits for would be doctors and nurses.
Fuzzy Felt hospital and Fuzzy Felt farms,
Stretchy people with stretchy legs and arms,
Pogo stick, Jacks and Monopoly,
Wonderful toys and games – all computer free!

Thanks for stopping by
I shall be turning my pc off shortly
and go and do some gardening
 and get some fresh air :)
Have a great day

  1. Love the poem and the journal page is wonderful. Children have such different possibilities these days, but I think they often miss out on the joys of the toys and games we used to have. Thanks for joining us at TIOT with your lovely contribution. Need to finish he cleaning now, Susi is coming here tomorrow so want to have everything ready. Hugs, Valerie
