My GameCube controller, I've had since I was 7, its got duck tape on it and chew marks on it from my dog who died when he was a puppy and it honestly holds a lot of sentimental value to me it's the only thing I have to remember him by. I brought it to school to our game club the other day and my teacher asked what happened to it and I explained, his name is ol' trustie.

I still to this day carry around my blue blankey




I have an old Pokemon cereal bowl from when I was in elementary school. It sucks because I actually broke it recently but I still keep it in my room.

I had my Yu-Gi-Oh Dragon deck id been working on for years. But for some reason, it "up and vanished" while I was moving out of my parents house. Its not like I used it or anything, but It was more of a memento of my childhood and im sure they did something with it(Little do they know, right before I have to go to basic training for the Air Force, im planning to burn my photo album so they will understand the pain of losing mementos)

Every old Viz Comic issue of the obscure The Electric Tale of Pikachu, Pokemon manga.

Along with several issues of Pokemon Adventures and Magical Pokemon Journey.

I still remember the various trips made to this old hobby shop, and picking up copies from mail order. It's amazing how much more enamored I was with many of the side products, than the actual first generation of games. lol

In my family it's not unusual to still have some of your childhood stuff. My Dad still has his toybox full of old toy cars and trucks from when he was a child in the 1940s, as well as his teddy bear! I still have a small tote box full of various toys like Raggedy Ann, my teddy bear, a topsy-turvy doll of Red Riding Hood, my talking Smokey the Bear with his comic and the record with his song, etc.

Some of my childhood stuff has been lost or stolen over the years. Most recently two years ago my house was broken into and the burglar took my childhood rock collection as well as all the other stuff they stole. I'd had it in a small display case in the living room just because of good memories.

I've also been giving some of my things away recently as I try to downsize so my stuff fits in my new home. I gave a box of my favorite childhood books to a co-worker who took them to Taiwan where her sister and brother in law are teachers who needed English language storybooks for elementary aged children they taught. Apparently English is required language classes but they only supply a textbook and nothing to practice on so the sister had called and asked if she could bring anything when she visited for holidays. I split my stamp collection in half and sent it to two of my high school friend's children who wanted to start collecting stamps.

For me I have this old Pokemon tin my grandparents gave me for my birthday when I was 7 or 8. I was sooo excited when I opened it, I kept all my treasures in it as a kid. I was still using it for little trinkets up until a week ago when my 10 year old brother asked if he could use it for his Pokemon stuff. It hurt a little. But, despite my age I couldn't suppress a strange inner childlike possessiveness and told him he couldn't HAVE it, he could BORROW it and proceeded to formally sit him down on the couch and explain all the consequences that would ensue if he damaged it, lost it, sold or traded it, used it for strange purposes etc.

I usually have no problem giving my little bro my things; I spoil him. But this... this was the line.

Do any of you still have anything from your childhood that means a lot to you? Something you just can't seem to get rid of or something so awesome you'd never think to? Post pictures if you'd like.




Sorry if there's already a thread like this.


Pokemon safire was my first good video game ever. It was a birthday present from my grandma when I turned 6 and since my parents where allways arguing and my sister hated me and I wasn't allowed to have freinds came over or go to freinds home it was my constant companion even though the eternal clock ran out years ago and playing it brings back better memories tenged with sadness and regret namely the realization of the true nature of those fights being my mother hating me wanting me dead and my dad allways working and coming home at the end of the day appoaled by by what she had done to me and desperately trying to defend me knowing he couldn't be there because of work. Yes I do that tiny nexophonic Violet cartridge serves as a stark reminder that now matter how cloady, abysmal or dark things look the future is just over the horizon that game cartridge symbolizes my past.

A quilt that my grandmother made for my birth. It ended up being my comfort blanket when I was little, and despite how stained and worn it is, I still have it stuffed away in a chest with some other stuff. I also have my grandfather's class ring and I sleep on the pillow that my other grandmother died on 12 years ago... creepy much?

A baby blanket that my cousin sewed for me when I was a toddler. It's in a box somewhere now.

From my travels: When I was a kid, I once met a man named Yoshi, who lived in the woods and taught himself to speak English by listening to the radio. This was just outside a little resort town in the mountains, where my family was staying. The guy taught pottery for a living. On the last day of the trip I gave him a little Canadian flag pin, and he gave me this little vase thingy. I've kept it all the years since.

I don't have anything from my childhood. Everything I own was purchased in the last couple years, and it could all fit in the back of a truck.
