Hobbies What was your favourite childhood hobby. I always loved model railways and a game called Simon. Childrens toys never seem as fun as they used to and there is a distinct lack of hobby shops now Tweet Comments Showing 2 of 2 Linda H 1 year, 2 months ago I loved to play with dolls, although not now. But I love crafts and have tried lots over the years, I would like a craft shop close to where I live the nearest is at Romford.I also like to play scrabble, reading, gardening.taking photos, watching wild life and probably more that I can not think of at the moment. Dee S 1 year, 2 months ago its rather sad now that children have to be watched & monitored all the time now, thinking back we had so much freedom as kids. Comments are closed.
