And how you felt about it?
Toys play an imperative role in a child’s life. Although I used to play with numerous toys in my childhood, one toy was special to me.
What was the toy? and Who gave it to you?
The toy was a remote-controlled helicopter. On the occasion of my sixth birthday, my father gifted it. It was black. The striking feature was its design which was not only stylish but also unique.
It was a limited edition helicopter. Since I lived in a small town back then, it was not available at the local shops.
Once my dad had gone to Singapore for a business trip, he bought it from there. After getting this gift, I stopped playing with other toys.
Its flying range was stupendous, it could fly up to 50 metres with tremendous ease.
Once it broke down while landing, that day was a dreadful day of my life. Seeing my plight, my father had repaired it, and it flew again.
This toy helped me to widen my friend circle. Because whenever I used to go the big playground of my town to fly it, all passerby’s would come and look at it. Many of those became my bosom friends.
Its battery life was superb. At one charge, it used to run for 2 hours.
How often did you play with it?
Initially, I used to play with it daily. It was a heavy-duty machine, that’s why it flew high for two years. After that its performance had declined and finally it ceased to run when I was ten years old.
So from the age of six to ten, I used to fly it daily.
