Describe a toy that that you played with in your childhood

(Note: This sample is only to be used for reference)

 

Wow, I had to think really hard to find a toy that I really loved playing with. Among the toys I had, ranging from Lego bricks to rubber band-powered gliders, the one that was most sentimental to me was this “War Castle” toy.

It’s a toy set consisting of plastic bricks (made to look like castle walls), the castle itself of course, a catapult and disks you can launch with. This toy is intended for two players, with each player setting up their “camps” 2 meters away from each other. You can stack the brick walls anyway you like in front of the castle and the aim is to topple your opponent’s by launching the rounded disks using the rubber band-powered catapult. It’s no easy thing to do as you need a few tries to gauge how much strength you put into launching the disk. But after a while, anyone can get the hang of it in a matter of minutes.

This game is a test of accuracy and speed, and in a way, brings out the architect in you as there are countless combinations with which you protect your castle with.

My little brother was the only opponent I had back in those days, and I’m proud to say I beat him 8 out of 10 times. Great fun! You could literally play this for hours and it never gets boring. I don’t know what happened to it eventually but that moment in time will always be with me…for a long time to come.
