“Stop playing with that ball inside the house!
I remember my first yo-yo: a blue Duncan Imperial. I was 7 years old and had saved up enough of my allowance to buy it. The drive to the store felt like an eternity. When I finally opened the package, the bright, shiny yo-yo smelled of plastic and felt as smooth as ice—it was perfect. Back at home, I spent hours in the driveway playing with my new toy.
I first encountered troll dolls in the mid-1970s. My younger sister had one that she loved greatly and played with all the time.
