Are there childish or childlike activities that you still enjoy?

I collect plush toys/stufffed animals and can’t sleep without one. I collect Hello Kitty anything. I enjoy animated movies almost more than I do live action.

I love candy.

Donotbelieve Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

Especially jelly beans.

Pink starburst are life

@Minta79 Yum! Basically, I love chewy, fruity candies.

@Donotbelieve mmm. Black jelly beans

OH, and I'm known to do a "happy dance" when I'm excited or delighted.


I found these last week.

JR pops filled with their version of fruit chews


@Bierbasstard Yum!


I have Strawberry Shortcake dolls on my dresser, and sometimes when I'm feeling out of sorts I smell their hair (smells like happiness and childhood). I love to color. I watch Disney movies, and tv shows like "Good Luck Charlie." My socks never match. I will build with Lego for hours. I like to play in the rain and splash puddles. I also try to build an igloo and a snowman every time it snows.

Minta79 Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

I play with LEGO too still.

That’s all fantastic! πŸ™‚πŸ‘£


If you call farts "barking spiders" I'll laugh for a full hour

Count_Viceroy Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

At age 65, I still:

Kiss the author's picture after finishing a wonderful book.

Do an silly Happy Dance when delighted. This makes people laugh.

Hug trees, especially majestic, old-growth giants.

Crush cedar tree needles and rapturously smell them.

Take a nap when tired.

Read while eating, a terrible habit. At age 8, my daughter gave me a book weight to hold books open on a table. I'd been caught. Sit down, and I look around for something to read.

As a kid, I thought the milk carton said "Damn Fresh." "That's awfully bold of them," I thought. I needed glasses. It said "Dawn Fresh."

LiterateHiker Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

Batman and everything related to Batman smile001.gif

Hastur Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

I love Christmas cartoons.

Kojaksmom Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

Me too!

I do too, just as long as they aren't overly religious.


What? No "Little Drummer Boy"? smile009.gif

@Bierbasstard Eh, that one is borderline...


I enjoy watching old/classic cartoons.

SpikeTalon Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

Same here. Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies cartoons are my favorites, especially Bugs Bunny.

Me too


Does still enjoying riding bikes count?

CAVU Level 3 Nov 17, 2018

Sure. Why not


I'm a big gamer. I love playing games with friends and family, tabletop games in particular (RPG'S, Boardgames, Card Games, Miniatures). In fact I've got my folks hooked on Ticket to Ride, Potion Explosion, and most recently Sentinels of the Multiverse (my personal favorite).

JeremyTaylor Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

We love Ticket to Ride!


@Donotbelieve your enthusiasm is duly noted and appreciated. What's your distraction of choice?

@Donotbelieve, @Minta79 my folks are hooked! They have almost everything for it. They play all the time.

@JeremyTaylor My kids and I really like Carcassonne.

@Donotbelieve that's a classic. I have a couple friends that have everything for it.

@JeremyTaylor I'm getting there.

@Donotbelieve how old are your kids? Do you play any other games with them?

@JeremyTaylor 17, 16, 14, and 13...plus I'm 7 months pregnant.

Oh, yes. We play a lot of board games. Lately though, we've been playing Drawfull 2.


Does jumping in rain puddles count? πŸ˜„

Capricorn Level 6 Nov 17, 2018

Yes it does and good for you smile001.gif

Of course!!!!

@ipdg77 my shoes and socks take a beat down πŸ˜‰

@graceylou the adult me is always pissed after the fact lol


I collect those silly bobbing sun catchers toys....also, I make felt flower dolls and mermaid dolls...I wear mixed matched socks...I have two piggy banks...and I make up songs about people when I am driving...

thinktwice Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

I wear mismatched socks too sometimes. Usually gaudy bright colours or with silly prints on them.


@graceylou Those are the best kind! And, I also have Hello Kitty stuff...shhhhh...ha ha ha

@thinktwice I wanted to get my firearms permit then get me a pink Hello Kitty rifle, but they tell me I can’t shoot people. Well, what else would I shoot. I won’t shoot animals (non-human ones). Oh well, no Hello Kitty rifle then.


I have played video games since I was a kid and still do.

Green_eyes Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

Open Arena (1st person shooter) played first row behing a screen that is over seven feet high with thousands of watts of power feeding dozens of speakers is occasionally a hair-raising experience as if an opponent is close, they appear larger then you on the screen. Haven't had time to play in a long time but video games are fun.


Three words: Adult Coloring Book.

Baconlover Level 1 Nov 17, 2018

I make cartoons. It was actually a childhood dream of mine.

chucklesIII Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

I have many stuffed animals as part of my decor as pillows/cushions. I sleep with one or two to take up the space left by mastectomy.

Lilac-Jade Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

I have about 5000 stuffed animals. And I love to go to Build a Bear. I’m not allowed to get anymore stuffies but my SO buys them for me now and then anyway. I get keychain stuffies now so they clip on my bags and purses.

@graceylou Yup, got those too.

@graceylou who says you are not allowed?

@btroje My SO. But he brings home some for me anyway.

@Lilac-Jade I gave a sad emoji because of the last part of your comment, sorry to hear that.

@SpikeTalon Well I'm still here, after more than 13 years.


Most of my hobbies have roots in childhood activities of mine but arent inherently childlike. When I was little Id peck around on a keyboard, play drums on pots n pans, wittle sticks, build lego and erector sets, and play ninja turtles with foam nunchucks or a mop handle.

Now I play a full sized electric piano, real drums, work out with rattan bo staff, hardwood nunchaku, build and repair electronics, make wood carvings. I just do the real versions of all the fake things I used to pretend with, because Im a grown ass man and if I want to give my hands arthritis and nearly take my head off with real weapons, by god I will πŸ˜‚

I guess video games and drawing are the things that have changed the least but those arent necessarily childlike pursuits these days either. When I really wanna feel like a kid again I watch old nick at night shows with a big bowl of reese puffs.

Wurlitzer Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

Greatly enjoy animated movies (collection has over 100 disks of animation). When I was very young I was into speakers and amplifiers. I am still upgrading the home theater sound system.

NoMagicCookie Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

I'd collect star wars figures if I had extra cash

Duke71 Level 5 Nov 17, 2018

Crude, non PC jokes still amuse me because I take them as a joke.

powder Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

I love toys and still buy them from time to time. Action figures and Hot Wheels mostly but will entertain most anything that reminds me of my childhood.

Bierbasstard Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

I collect Funko figures. They really aren’t for kids though.


I have a few of those but they could become addicting lol. I have a Cthulu on my desk at work.

I want to get Alana and Marko from the comic Saga, a great story. Oh, yeah, I like comics too lol!


Since my granddaughter lives with me we play with baby dolls a lot. And make up ridiculous stories.

GreatNani Level 8 Nov 17, 2018

Playing in the dirt.
It's now referred to as "gardening".

bigpawbullets Level 8 Nov 19, 2018

Robots.. remote controlled things.. still have to convince myself not to splurge on that to this day..

hippydog Level 7 Nov 17, 2018

As for me, I prefer to collect the Hello Titty dolls!

Logician Level 5 Nov 17, 2018

I collect vinyl records since 8.
I play accordion since same age.
