My toys were on stands with many shelves in one of the corners of the dining room, on a nice big territory. I had many toys, someone once said that it was like an exhibition. I had very many and pretty toys. My parents didn't really buy me any. Though a couple from among my mother's toys remained, I liked these very much, the big baby carriage, small furniture. From my mother I mainly got books and board games, she played with me, because I didn't have the company of other children. I could sometimes go with her to the Parisi Department Store, and on one of the floors there everything only cost 25 filler. My mother usually bought items for the household, dry goods here. One of the departments was a toy department. For 25 filler one could only buy small, simple toys, of course. But there was quite a big assortment, one could look at it, pick and choose. I could only pick one usually, sometimes two. My father brought nice things from abroad, seven balls of different size and with different pattern from London, for example.
