Full disclosure: I am obsessed with stamps. Ever since I was a preteen and had to spend a summer “working” in my parent’s office (which I now see was just free babysitting), I have loved all stamp related items. Truth be told, I whiled away hours at an empty desk creating fake work for myself just so I could use the office supplies and the stamps were the absolute gold. The typewriter was a close second, but I’m showing my age, aren’t I? Fast forward all these years later and my love of stamps hasn’t waned, it has merely grown particular. My taste level has grown.

    My sister and I used to pretend to me my mom and her friend. We’d play the ‘Paula and Joyce’ game and get together to have tea and look through the JC Penney catalog. So silly!

    As children, my sisters and I loved to play with stationery.  My mom bought us tons of LIsa Frank and American Girl stationery and we had lots of pen pals.  We learned to emboss stamps and set wax seals.  We also used to go to work with our grandmother and also “played office” in her realtor office, which was so fun!

    I was a lego girl all the way. I recently read a story about the new legos for girls and the studied differences in the ways that girls and boys play with toys. Apparently girls are all about telling the story and playing with the interior (so, inside of Barbie’s dream house, instead of having interest in building the dream house itself), which was NOT my experience! I loved to create extremely elaborate environments with my little sister, but once built, we’d usually demolish and build something else, rather than make up little stories for all of the figures to act out. I think it was my love of legos that initially led me to architecture school and that design background is why I’m a graphic designer today.

    i was big into Nancy Drew, so i used to play detective and spy on my neighbors and take notes on their comings and goings!

    It was the “cool thing” in kindergarten to catch beetles and make elaborate habitats for them like doll houses. Different girls in the class had joint custody and would take turns caring for them after school. My mother was not too happy that I was playing nanny to beetles in my bedroom and they were mysteriously gone in the morning. I always suspicious that they were freed or flushed.

    This is going to sound weird, but when my brother and I were little (elementary school-age), we’d play “Indiana Jones” and have adventures around the furniture in the house and on our play-structure outside. My brother was Indiana Jones and I was the girl sidekick. We’d even have “camp outs” and set up a fort using the large cushions from the couch; we’d bring “supplies” like books, chips, my brother’s toy swords, etc. We’d take such a long time planning, that we would end up having to return everything because it was time for bed.

    I loved to play store and office. My dad had tons of office supplies in our basement, and a friend and I would spend hours with the index cards, sharpies, highlighters, note pads. We had eloborate shops and office scenarios. To this day, I’m obsessed with sharpies and fun supplies!

    I love to play house with my dollhouse. It was my favorite thing as a child.

    We used to play drive-thru all the time and ride our bikes up and down the cul-de-sac and place our orders into our neighbors mailboxes! Oh to still have that kind of an imagination!

    I loved pretending to be a teacher!  My mom would get me a bunch of school books and I would teach my stuffed animals!  I loved to grade!  I ended up becoming a teacher so I guess all of the practice payed off! 🙂

    i’m from singapore, which is a foodie nation, so no surprises that my childhood playtime involved lots of “masak masak” (Malay for cooking). I’d cook lots of food (all invisible of course) and serve them to my grandpa and older brother, who surprisingly played along! luckily i cook real edible food now 🙂

    It was all about horses when I was little. And since my friends and I just didn’t have horses, we pretended our bikes were pretty painted horses and we’d ride around the neighborhood making god-awful loud horse noises to make sure everyone knew that they were NOT bikes, but lovely horses with flowing manes.

    my friends and i used to play, “what kind of robot are you?” and then each one of us would describe our shape, functions and what color our robot eyes were. it was different every time!

    I used to pretend I owned a restaurant, I would draw up menus and cut up paper food and my wonderful grandparents would play along.

    My uncle used to have a large mirrored closet in his home office and we used to pretend we were on QVC when we were little. We would grab as many small objects as we could and stand in front of that mirrored closet for hours (!) pretending we were QVC ladies chatting about the products we were selling! It seems so silly now but we had such a good time back then!

    My favourite imagination play when I was little was what you would now call LARPing: running around the forest, imagining goblins and villains behind every tree, lobbing magic missiles at them, and winning the treasure at the end of the adventure. I would say it was a product of too many fantasy books, but let’s be honest: it was a product of just the right number of fantasy books.

    I loved playing with paper dolls – drawing new dresses and cutting them out was the best. =) nothing like fashion to keep a girl occupied.

    I was all about anything tiny. When I had tiny figurines I would create a world for them out in the yard. I’d make tiny homes, tiny streets, tiny parks, whatever my tiny things needed I would provide it for them! Oh and my brother’s micromachines…yeah I may have “borrowed” a few of those.

    I loved to play pretend.  My mother had made up the best basket of dress-up which included yards and yards of material so not only could you swathe yourself up in a toga, sari, or nun’s habit, you could tie or drape the fabric to make a tent, a hammock, a parachute…the possibilities were limitless.  Even the neighborhood boys would play dressup and pretend.  Pioneer scenarios, lots of Star Wars play, pretending to be fashion models, harpooned on deserted islands, so many different worlds to live in and act out.  We had so much fun. Halloween was a combined neighborhood effort while everyone worked out their costumes and what they wanted to be.

    Mermaids! I was lucky enough to grow up with a pool, and my cousin and I loved swimming under water and pretending our legs turned into big sparkling tails as we flipped and flopped around under the sea!

    I loved to play school. I would line all of my siblings up in chairs and use all of my “school supplies” to make them do homework and learn their ABCs. I’ve always loved paper goods and I haven’t been able to shake it!

    Elizabeth says:

    Mom.  I always wanted to play mom.  I was the youngest in my family.  Oh how I longed to – for once -get to make a decision of my own!!!  Now that I’m a mom, though, I play “kid” a lot with my own daughter while she plays mom.  It’s beautiful.

    My friends and I used to pretend we were ponies. I remember refusing to wear anything but pants to school, because if I did it hurt too much to crawl around.
    We thought we were so majestic and beautiful!

    My brother and I used to play store. We would open a bedroom window and “sell” things to each other through the window. We would come up with the most ridiculous “prices”, ie, yellow flower, something purple, etc.
