Round Robin Challenge: Favorite Toy

Hi, Robins! It's time to announce our next Challenge. This one comes from, well, me, and sorta-kinda continues this month's holiday theme. The topic for Saturday, December 27th is

THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! THANKS FOR PLAYING!

Favorite Toy




Photograph a toy that has some significance to you or a loved one. What I have in mind here is actual toys, such as might be sold in toy stores and played with by children, rather than "big boys' toys" such as ATVs and motorcycles and RVs. It could be a present your kid is getting for Christmas or Hanukkah this year and will be playing with continually well into the new year, or a toy from your own childhood that you still have (or replaced using eBay), or even something that's been handed down in the family for several generations. New or old, take its picture and tell its story!

As always, we ask you to RSVP in the comments below, and wait to post your entry until the designated day, or up to one week afterward. For your RSVP, even if you've done so before, please leave us your full information of first name or handle, blog name and blog address, thus:

Yes, I'd love to play with my favorite toy!

Got it? Good! Go be photographers! Pick out that favorite toy, and be ready to show it off on Saturday, December 27th!
