I must admit that at 18 years of age I like toys. Which is weird, because when I was at the age at which love of toys is supposed to peak, probably around 7 or 8, I wasn't much for toys. I preferred playing with my imagination. I preferred dress up. Now it is socially unacceptable to play pretend, it's called mental illness or poor adjustment. Dress up is generally ok as long as there's a theme party and alcohol involved... but besides that, imagination isn't quite cool. Maybe I am poorly adjusted afterall, although I'll deny any mental illness, thank you very much, and that's why I've started collecting designer toys.
i bought this hello kitty figure at urban outfitters and was happy to receive the rainbow one!
I just think there's no better way to decorate my freshman dorm that with little pieces of brightly colored plastic that can be described with adjectives like "cute" or "fun." My friends think I'm wasting money and call me a creep. I ignore them.
I've recently bought a hello kitty and a cupcake. I can't wait to expand my collection, although I hope my college room mate finds my habit as adorable as I do.
