Today’s Prompt: What was your favorite toy as a child?

Stuffed animals play.

One of my favorite toys as a child? A multitude of stuffed animals and the imaginary games I played with them and my siblings. Capture the flag included.

We had one game where our animals lived on a giant farm and knit sweaters out of feathers to sell at the market, and trained for races with frogs, instead of horses. Then we had another game where they had superpowers and went to a magical school.

One awesome super power? The ability to meet with your animal friends halfway across the world in a dreamscape, as long as they were asleep at the same time as you.
