Sample Answer 1
Here is the sample for “Describe A Toy you liked in your Childhood” topic:
When it comes to toys I had in my childhood, the collection was humongous. Everything about my toys makes me nostalgic. In my point of view, childhood is definitely a golden phase and the memories we create during this time hold a special place in our hearts. On top of that, there is nothing more precious than a favourite childhood toy.
Since I was the only girl child in my entire clan, my family had bestowed me with a plethora of toys, including dolls, building blocks, stuffed animals, puzzles, and many more. However, out of all, the one that was close to my heart was a barbie doll set that my father gifted me on my 5th birthday.
I vividly remember I had gone to somebody’s birthday party with my parents. There, I saw a Barbie doll, which looked attractive and enigmatic. I was fascinated with her clothes, shoes, hair, and everything else. I went to my father and told him that I wanted the same set on my birthday.
After a few months, when my birthday arrived, my father stepped inside my room with a large box that was gift wrapped. I was awestruck at the idea of receiving a barbie set. When I opened it, it was nothing similar to what I had seen but even more charismatic and bigger. Also, this barbie set came with more accessories than what I had seen at that house.
This house set became my pride possession. From thereon, whenever my cousins and friends would come over, we would play with this barbie doll. When I look back at that time, I realize how simple toys used to be our valuable things. I had a whale of a time playing around with my barbie. And, I am proud to say that I still have it intact at my house.

I remember 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 paid no attention to my other presents.
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 happy childhood.
