A toy

Describe a toy you enjoyed in your childhood.

You should say:

what the toy was

when you first got it

whether it was a popular toy with children

and explain why you think the toy is special.

 

When I was a child, my favorite toy was an action figure玩具人called ultraman. It was from a Japanese cartoon on TV which all of us used to watch. I remember begging my mother to buy me the little robot so that I could play with my friends during break at school.

 

It was a 30-centimeter-tall plastic action figure and it cost my mother a lot of money at the time, which was ridiculous for a simple toy. However, every one of my classmates had one, so I really insisted on having one too.

 

That was a long time ago, but I still remember it had a red armor盔甲and it held a sword and a shield. The robot had joints which allowed it to rotate and swing its arms.

 

I remember how we used to make the action figures fight with each other after school or on the weekend. We would imitate the cartoon heroes and monsters we had watched and make them fly around our universe. We pretended to be the superheroes saving the world form destruction by alien monsters. It was a lot of fun and we spent untold hours imagining different plots from adventurous stories in which our action figures would attack each other.

 

Until today, I keep this toy as one of my favorite gifts. It is not only because it is a great action figure and left me too many beautiful memories of my childhood, but also because this toy has special sentimental value to me.

 

{背景知识}

 

奥特曼同学的英文名是ultraman, 注意到这里的前缀ultra-了吗?这个前缀表示……的,极端的,在……之外的,例如超声波ultrasound; 超软的ultra-soft; 紫外线ultraviolet, 都是由ultra-这个前缀构成的词。

 

Ultraman原意就是超人。日本虽然是发明奥特曼的国家,但奥特曼这个名字是由英语ultraman音译而来的,所以用日语片假名书写ウルトラマン。
