The Toy Chest

If you're looking for Gretel, it's pretty safe to say you'll be able to find her near the toy chest. Hours of fun are to be had within, and she takes advantage of them every day! This lust for toys brings back memories of the old ottoman at our Lackaff grandparents' farm, which doubled as a toy chest. Whenever we would come visit, my sisters and I would say a quick hello to our grandparents then run directly to the ottoman and empty it of its contents. The same old familiar friends were always in there. A jack-in-the-box, a clown toy that sat on a round base and thus was impossible to tip over, old coloring books with my sister's names carefully printed in them from years prior, and many other old favorites. I wonder whatever became of those toys and that old green ottoman....
