A couple of months ago I took part in a blogger chat, where we shared memories from our childhood.
This gave me inspiration to write a post all about my favourite aspects of my childhood!

I loved tamagotchi’s and I can remember being really excited when I was bought my first ever Tamagotchi. For those of you who don’t know what a tamagotchi is, it was a little game attached to a key ring and you looked after a “pet” (the tamagotchi character) and helped it to grow up. I always played with my tamagotchi and I was always sad when my tamagotchi died. I collected a different tamagotchi from each edition; right up until edition 6 came out.
From a young age, I loved playing with Polly Pockets and I would spend hours in my bedroom playing with them. I would always receive Polly Pockets for my birthday and Christmas and I would use my pocket money to buy my own as well. Over the years I ended up with a HUGE collection of Polly Pockets.
I got my first very Nintendo DS one Christmas when I was about 8 years old and back then, it was the best piece of technology I owned. Whenever I went on days out I would take my Nintendo to play in the car. On the last day of school where we could all bring a toy in we’d all bring our Nintendo’s in and then spend ages on the chat rooms talking to each other. My favourite DS game has to be My Sims, I loved that game so much!
Horrid Henry books were probably the first book series I ever read by myself. I collected most of the books which usually consisted of 4 short stories. All the characters had names to match their personalities, e.g Moody Margaret. I always enjoyed reading Horrid Henry books and seeing what trouble he got into. I even watched the TV series when it came out and I thought they were just as good as the books.
When I was a bit older I got into the Megastar Mysteries book series and I soon owned all the books in the. The books are about teenage girls solving mysteries involving celebrities, which I enjoyed reading all about. It also had quizzes and advice in the back of the books.
The first book I ever read was the 6th one in the series (Style School) and I enjoyed it so much I decided to collect and read all the other books. The Totally Lucy series are about Lucy who wants to be a fashion designer when she grows, and her 2 friends Jules and Matilda.
My childhood wouldn’t be complete without Jacqueline Wilson, my all-time favourite childhood author! I have most of her books and I was always taking Jacqueline Wilson books out from the library. I enjoyed the books so much I constantly re-read them and I could probably tell you most stories off by heart. Even in my teens I still collected and read her books and to this day I still have my collection of her books.
This was another of my favourite TV series which me and my friend was always play in the playground. Totally Spies is about 3 girls who are undercover spies and they would go on all sorts of secret missions. I loved finding out what missions they had to go on and whether they would be successful or not.
This was such an AMAZING TV show! I always wanted to take part in Raven. Raven is about children who would take point in different challenge, If they succeeded they would earn golden rings and if not they would have lives deducted. My favourite part was the challenge at the end (Way of the Warrior, I think it was called), although no one ever succeeded in completing it.
These were always popular at school discos and we would bring these in on the last day of school. Wham bars come in a variety of different flavours; however my personal favourite is the original one. The original wham bar is bright pink and is a sour raspberry flavour.
Who doesn’t remember/ love rainbow drops! I love these little puffy snacks of rainbow goodness; I would always buy them at the corner shop. They were always perfect for car journeys to munch on.
Were any of the things I mentioned above part of your childhood? What are your memories of your childhood?
