I had various types of toys in my childhood, like, Dools, cars, artificial weapons and utensils. Among all of them, I liked my one Dools, which my Aunt gifted. I lived for 2 years with my aunt in childhood, and whenever she went out of the station, she always brings something for me, like, sometimes she gave me dresses, eatable or tous. Once she visited Delhi to meet my uncle after 1 year, and she came back, she gave me one electronic doll. It was alluring, it was packed in the large box, and I enthusiastically opened it, and I was over the moon. Inbox, there was a doll in laying position who wore a sparkling night suit with a high ponytail. To be fair and square, it was actually adorable.
In its hand, a small book was held in which some Alphabet from A to L and a few animals names we have written. Whenever I turn on its button, it starts to speak some alphabets and animals names in a beautiful tone mentioned in the book. I always kept her with me, and even still, I have this doll, and I keep it on my bed whenever I go to sleep. No doubt, it is a materialistic thing, but I have some emotional attachment with it because the aunt who gave me it is my favourite one, and I was never supposed to staying away from my aunt as well as from my doll.
