i played horses and my names was sparkle
Ghostbusters. I was always Winston.
i havent seen it for years
or "watership down" as "hazel"
somekinf o lip face thing that you could kiss to practise and it would tell you what you were doing right and wrong etc
turns out i was a natural so i didnt need it anyway.
Just like her, apparently.
were someone had to be the trog and come and find you, shouting 'OOO-GA BOO-GA'!
Then Mike accidentally pulled the front off my dad's shed so we stopped playing it.
but with a duvet monster. If you were pulled under the duvet, you were done for.
aka old uncle paedo, dying for an excuse to fondle.
we called it 'kill the baby' and we used to stuff ballons up our tops then chase each other trying to pop them
i actually really want to play this now.
im going to buy some balloons on my way home
a different kind of war
warriors (gang fights like in the movie)
something else with guns
We used to run around in this wooded area building forts and stuff
That climbing frame took a battering. A BATTERING.
my mum and dad put a stop to it when i started demanding to eat my meals out of a bowl on the floor :(
which involved gathering all the duvets/pillows/cushions into the spare room, then jumping off my dressing up chest onto them.
she had two big sofas and a big sitting room, so we'd take the pillows and steas off, then lay them round the room, turn off the lights and play chase
sophia walks out of the room
cookie bounds in woofing and panting and gets the rest of her pudding :D
cookie is a bit more imaginative than spot.
I just went a bit weird about dogs because, as with any little girl, i loved animals but because i'm allergic to dogs i could never have one/go near any.
It was the only way my parents could ever make me go on walks, apparently they used to get a lot of weird looks when they'd shout 'spot! come on!" and a 6 year old would come running out of the woods barking :D
also he'd kit me up then take my teddies hostage, then he'd enlist my other brother and sisters to jump out at me along the hall and i'd have to kill them or throw a my little pony grenade at them
i used to play robin hood witha girl at my school
and i had a big thing for being a captured princess
me and my friend had a jump course set up in her garden.
we also played 'my friend' where one person would run after the others in order to hug them to death while shouting 'MY FRIEND MYYYYYYYYY FRIEND'
'Sausage, egg or chips'
where one person would hold arms with one other, all in turn, and you'd choose 'sausage', 'egg' or 'chips' which indicated how fast you wanted to be spun. then whoever was 'on' would spin you and let go. you had to stay frozen in the position you fell. when everyone had done it, 'on' would go around and tell everyone what they looked like 'a ballerina', 'you're cooking' and so on. then they'd shout 'ACTION' and you'd erm, act out whatever you were. yup.
there are more. oh so many more.
and being knights
and for ages, owning shops that sold pebbles and such, but that was discouraged because my parents are lefties.
even tried climbing into the septic tank
I don't even think you're kidding
although i think it's why I have a pretty awesome immune system*. There's only so many times you can climb a tree and ambush your little sister/the cat.
My findings - Sian: easy to catch, not worth the crying
Cat: very hard to catch, not worth the scratches.
*I'll probably catch MRSA. From my teacup. At this teabreak. Right. NOW.
i used to do that too but i could never stop giggling for very long so it never worked!
my sister played library and school swith me
I so wanted to do that. I may have asked the lady once if I could stamp them myself, I can't remember. I know I wanted to.
I used to pretend read to my stuffed animals as well. Overall I was an exciting kid, though.
I would remember if I had actually gotten to stamp them.
They were better than proper toy guns. Plus, you could make the them eat each other when you got bored!
I was always Face, and we made guns out of sticklebricks (sp)
im still slightly confused.
had aspects of sarahs sauasage, egg and chips game too.
(It's relevant, this is an excellent excuse to link to it, this is not about you, it's about the funny list, I'm not hating on you, I don't know why you think I hate you but I don't, I don't even know you.)
and formed a whole elaborate make-believe world around them. they had such japes as forming a band (complete with an extensive back catalogue of songs largely plagiarised from 90s chart hits), visiting a 'theme park' designed from lego and cardboard boxes, going to school, putting on plays (i typed up original scripts and everything), and exchanging christmas gifts that consisted of happy meal toys wrapped up in shiny paper. there were also various complex pairings/friendships/family relationships amongst the beanies which involved occasional arguments but ultimately ended in heartwarming reconciliation.
i didn't have very many friends as a kid (Y)
that sounds amazing!
I used to interrupt, grab one of them, put them in her pink Barbie convertible and push them down the stairs shouting 'CAR CRASH! CAR CRASH!' whilst laughing hysterically.
so me and my brother used to well, destroy them. once we were playing car crash with a legless barbie, some power rangers and optimus prime, and my mam walked in and threatened to throw them all away cos they all had no limbs etc.
i loved stumpy the barbie.
our base used to be the shed and a broom 'professor brush' would give us missions and we have to go around my garden pretending stuff and then we'd go in my next door neighbours garden that wea hideously overgrown and do missions
nazis, we used to make bases and erm pretend to be nazis. lots of pretend shootinf too.
we used to also pretend to be knights, and we found these metal poles that proper wrecked when you got hit so people would play properly and when they didn't eveyone used to hit them with said metal poles. you could NEVER choose not to fight. this wasn't always one on one fights, there used to be armies when every kid in the street was out.
hurricane when it was windy, and when we went to the beach we used to pretend that the sand dunes were mountains cos my brother knew all of the names, and we'd have to climb them and pretend to fall and stuff.
also; we used to play stair sledging with all out bedding down the stairs and it was really good and we used to play washing machines where we used this old velvet curtain, and you got on it and about 20 kids got the edges and spun you round. beanie babies had heir own intricate lives. and American accents, bizarrely. there was always lego armies, we'd play lego wars for like a full day. it took about an hour to make all the troops. and doll suicides, making barbies etc. jump out of windows and stuff, cos we never played proper doll games.
we also had a massive amount of bases and treehouses that a rival gang of kids used to always burn down :(. and we used to sneak up to the graveyard when we wearn't allowed and pretend to be dead people.
in the living room, with two chairs and stacked books to set the height. It was like a mini-olympics, surprised I never hurt myself.
Spent the early years of primary school walking about the playground with some lad pretending we were travelling to different countries, I remember landing in America and the sun came out, it was really exciting. That was before I started playing footy with everyone, I was a late starter in regards to that, but was still better than most people in my class. I'm just that good.
We always used to stay in the garden because the house smelled kinda bad. And the garden was our sweet factory, and each plant / garden thing produced different sweets, and my sister and I runned it. I don't remember much, other than that hundreds of rainbow sweets came down from the hanging basket, and there's some purple flower that to this day I can only identify as "Marshmallow Plant". Actually, a couple of years back I was at the garden centre getting dtuff for my pot, and I asked one of the shop people if they had any Marshmallow Plants. They were very confused. So was I for a while.
And I used to play various games with my best friend when I was young. I think most of them revolved around Dalmations.
we had one in our garden, it made a great den.
