I remember that I saved up money to buy a figurine once and it was my treasure. Going to the Toy Museum in Insadong brought back a lot of memories. It is a fascinating museum with toys from all over the world. There were G.I. Joes and Star Wars figurines and even old gameboys and an ancient cabbage patch kids.
The one thing I really liked were the bags of marbles in the bags. It was a game that I would play in the sand with friends and I recall being good at it. Now, I don't even remember how to play the game but I remember how I flicked the big marble with my thumb.
