What was your favorite toy when you were a kid? Do you still have it? Who gave it to you? One of my favorite toys is tamagotti, which you can grow a moster (but very cute one). It was popular when I was three or too young to remember it. And it became a big trend when I was grade 2. I just found a website talking about my first tamagotti, which was written in 2004.
As you might notice, this site has diffent style, which we rarely see these day. There was no smartphone at all.
I was wondering how much it was because I can earn money and spend it for what I want. I do not have to wait for my birthday to get it. It said that my first Tamagotti was ¥2,625. For me, I feel that the cost is same price as one of all you can eat. However, the tamagotti was worth more than the price. I thought only my parents could buy it for me because they were super!
I have admired my parents and the feeling is getting stronger as I grow up. When I know how much the tamagotti was todday, I was disappointed that I would never feel the happiness I had when I got the tamagotti from my father on my birthday at grade 2. I know the market price and can choose which is expensive or cheep. I can buy whatever I want if I work and save money for it. This might give me the other feeling of happiness since I would achieve my goal to get something by striving hard.
But the moment how I was excited to get an tamagotti and grow it up would never been back again.
As another thought of mine, I want to enjoy Christmas by not waiting for my present but for giving someone special a gift. This might be one of the translations from a child to an adult. It will be my turn to let people have fun.
