35. What was your favorite toy as a child? Barbies and dolls. I loved American Girls dolls and books but they were so expensive. My parents bought me a generic doll instead whom I named Samantha (after my favorite AG doll). I would pour over the catalogs then attempt to recreate their clothing by hand sewing from mom's fabric scraps for my own doll. (I still do that with J Crew clothing because really, who would pay $80 for a shirt?)
