I always wanted to play an accordion. So one Christmas I received a small accordion. I have a picture of me and the accordion (I am wearing an accordion pleated dress) by the Christmas tree. Unfortunately, I never did learn to play it.
I got a gun for Christmas that shot red rubber balls. It was quite unique because it shot the balls around corners. Mirrors adjusted so that you could see your target. Unfortunately, it was commandeered by my older brother who made it his weapon of choice in all of our battles. I couldn’t walk freely through the house without being ambushed. It was great!
