Talking Christmas present

Actually the one I remember most was a (probably very cheap) set of miniature Disney figures. My Daddy actually taught me to play chess using the figurines as chess pieces ... the Seven Dwarves (and somebody else, Pinocchio maybe?) were the pawns, Snow White the queen, Mickey the king of course, and so on.

As a parent I tried to remember that, and stay away from the fancy and expensive gifts for our daughter and try to buy things that would stretch her mind and her imagination.
