I’m sure that Filipinas of my age and generation will have a big smile on their face as they see this palayok playset of mine, which my mom managed to keep for 30 years, still in good condition. I remember I had this when I was 6. Yeah, do the math hahaha!
I remembered still having this and kept at my parents’ house when I saw my girls playing the cooking set that I bought online. I then promised Deye that I’d be handing this over to her, in her care. While we were checking some more toys that I plan to take next time, the sewing machine caught my attention. It was one of my favorite toys (that ages the same as the palayok set) that my dad bought for me. A “Katas ng Saudi” as some would say.
Too bad its needle was already missing. Well, what do you expect for a 30 year old toy? Surprisingly the light still turned on as we moved and turned the side wheel. This machine really stitches if you put two big batteries in it.
We also found Popoy, the stuffed toy that our neighbor gave my brother on his 1st birthday. I am 10 years older than my brother so go figure how old Popoy is now!
I really admire my mom for being able to keep these stuff. Who would’ve thought that some of my favorite toys will still be enjoyed and played by my daughters.
