Pretty straight forward: What is the longest kept item you have since childhood?

For me it would be the promo cards from the pokemon movies, Dragonite from the First, Ancient Mew from The Movie 2000, and Unown J from the VHS for 3.

My "nigh-nigh"

In other words, a small green blanket. It was designated to be mine before I was born, and it's still in my closet to this day (with holes and tears all over)

I used to walk around the house sucking my thumb while sniffing it (it smelled delicious for some reason) and I would toss it on the ground when I was done sniffin. My mom would then put it away somewhere, and then I'd freak out because I needed that thing - It was like my crack! If I didn't get a sniff in when I needed it, I was drained of energy and became lethargic.

I was addicted to a blanket as a kid

Its a tie between my teddy bear, my blanket and my Pokemon Cards.  Though I guess I've had the first two longer.

I have a blanket aswell from when I was a baby, and also a bear that was given to me after I was born and before I even left the hospital. These are both undoubtedly my longest kept posessions since they were the first two things I ever owned.

That's kind of pre-childhood though, so far as actual childhood goes I think the oldest thing I have is my Atari 2600. Unfortunately over the years moving houses several times I have managed to lose almost every game (I had about 20, now I have only 3), most of my controllers (I have only 1 of 5 left now) and even the RF cable for connecting it to the TV. But if nothing else I still have the console itself :cool:

I have my teddy bear Mr. Coconut in my closet. Old Mr. Coconut has been through hell and back, but he's still holding up strong. He's had his legs torn off and sewed back on, his back ripped open and his stuffing taken out, and he has some weird stain on one of his other legs.

I also have my old The Stinky Cheese Man story book, god damn I still love that thing.

I just found my Pokemon Red version today. Blue was my first, but who knows where that is right now...

I have a teddy bear that I've had as long as I can remember, his name is Blacky and it's a Black bear. Apparently I suck at coming up with names.

Got any questions about moderation or just want to chat, send a pm my way! Don't be afraid to contact me if an issue arises.

My personal momento is a small/medium sized Pikachu doll (like a beanie baby) given to me on my 5th (I think) birthday, or something, by my brother. I remember one time, I was still very young, when it busted a seam and I was extremely sad and worried that it might be permanently damaged, but it was fixed by my mom. I've even thought about getting a small safe for it. Although it's not the oldest momento-like item I have, it's the one I cherish most.

Another that I don't cherish a whole lot, or even remember where it is, is one of those wooden rocking horses. The reason I remember it so well, is that is was always in my room as I grew up and I always remember one funny story about it; one day, my child mind thought that the tail of the rocking horse seemed like it was a bit too long, and I came up with the genious idea of giving it a haircut. So I grabbed the scissors, and went to it and chopped off about 2-inches off the tail and then, if I recall this correctly, my mom coming in seeing what I had done, letting out the "What have you done!?" parental outburst, leaving me staring blankly at her, and then back at my hands, as my child mind slowly realized that I had apparently done something wrong. So, my mother was angery at me for the rest of the day and the typical punishment of staying in my room.

Uh... I don't remember. I should check my stuff and see.

One thing I can say I still have is books (dunno if they count as "childhood mementos" though...) I've got a BIG Mickey Mouse hardback book with stories from the 1930s which was given to me when I was still a baby (so I didn't actually read it till later)... And I also have a hardback 50 year anniversary edition of The Hobbit. Both have great sentimental value for me :)

I feel like a hoarding packrat after reading these. >_< (My attic is full of books, stuffed animals/toys from my childhood.) One of my favorites is a piggy bank shaped after one of the puppies from 101 Dalmatians. But seriously, I think we've kept nearly everything I had as a kid. >_>

The memorial Bible given to me and my sister when our dad died. Also his trombone. I've had them since I was 10. I'm not a very sentimental person. I don't keep mementos around to clutter things up. These are two things I will keep for the rest of my life.

The oldest thing I have from when I was a kid is a pillow, which I've had since I was three years old.

It's barely in tact still, but I keep it inside of a bin in my closet, for memory's sake.

My dad used to drive materials around in a truck around neighboring states and bought me that pillow one of the times I went with on his trips.

I barely remember anything from back then, but I can at least vaguely recall that time because of the memories associated with this pillow.

A stuffed dog I got in the hospital when I was 6. Gave it to my first born son in 1999. It was 20 years old then.

I still have my Teddy bear that I got when I was a baby as well.

Actually I have 2... My mom tried to wash it one day, but I cried when she try to take it from me. So she went to the store and bought the exact same one to switch it when I wasn't looking. It didn't work, I still cried with the new bear. You can't fool me!
