My favorite toy when I was a child My favorite toy was actually a collection of toys, it was a collection of Barbie dolls. The body shapes of that sort of plastic dolls are similar to adults. They are tall and thin, with big blue eyes and golden curly hair. Besides, they have flexible joints so that I can post them. When I was pretty little,I admired girls who own this sort of doll. But they are expensive so only when I performed pretty well in nursery and kindergarten, my mom bought one for me as a prize. Because I’m the only child in my family, I treated these dolls as my siblings. I would keen for dressing them up. I spent much time selected the most beautiful skirt for them and put them on and brush their hair. I even had a specific drawer to collect their various ball gowns, high heels and matched accessories. Sometimes, I made skirts for them by simple materials like residual rags, napkin, plastic bags and so on. Despite I was too young to be allowed to use needle and thread, I usually glued them together. When I was a bit older, I dreamed to build a castle for them. Every evening, when I lied on my bed, I was excitedly imagining the interior of the castle, like the fancy decoration of bedrooms and live room. I was even imaging the scenes that they were alive when I was sleeping and fairies could play with them and help them build castle. Playing with lovely dolls lighted up my childhood. But after I went to middle school, my mom sent them to my little cousin. Then I never saw these dolls.

My favorite toy when I was a child My favorite toy was actually a collection of toys, it was a collection of Barbie dolls. The body shapes of those types of plastic dolls are similar to adults. They are tall and thin, with big blue eyes and golden curly hair. Besides, they had flexible joints so that I could position them how I liked. (I have put this setence in the past because you don't do this now) When I was quite little, I admired girls who owned this sort of doll. But they were expensive so my mum only bought one for me as a prize, when I performed well in nursery and kindergarten. Because I was the only child in my family, I treated those dolls as my siblings. I was very keen on dressing them up.

I was even imagining the scenes of them being alive when I was sleeping and fairies could play with them and help them build castles. Playing with lovely dolls lit up my childhood. But after I went to middle school, my mom sent (or maybe 'gave') them to my little cousin. I never saw those dolls after that.
Wow, this is a stunning story. I am almost crying. Do you wish you still had them? The English here can be a bit difficult when you are talking about something that is true now, but the story is in the past. Also there are some tricky choices between this/that/these/those. Again, thank you very much. This is so descriptive and very moving. 谢谢你!
