Tell me something that is known about children that you do, like or about you.

I like watching cartoons and Sesame Street still.
I read children’s books, like Dr Suess.
I like playing on playgrounds.
I own about 5 stuffed animals.

I’m 25 years old.

I’m a few weeks shy of forty, and I have a vast collection of children’s music my teenage daughter is not even remotely interested in. My two most recent CD purchases - for myself - were Marlo Thomas’s “Thanks + Giving” and “NO!” by They Might Be Giants.

I was an avid Sesame Street watcher until my daughter was about 5, and Elmo took the entire show over. I have a nice collection of Disney movies, too.

  1. I watch Disney movies all the time.
  2. I love playing on playground equipment and going to amusement parks.
  3. I sometimes just break into a run just because I feel like it and may even do a somersault or two.
  4. I sometimes act anyway I want to in public such as spontaneously popping wheelies with my shopping cart or throwing paper airplanes and I don’t care what anyone else thinks.

I am 31 years old.

I collect Disney movies. I know most of the songs by heart.
I watch cartoons on TV, but they’re not the same now.
When something fascinates me I’ll get all giddy and hyper about it and want to tell everyone, like a 5-year-old who discovers a new bug in the back yard.
I kept most of the books from my childhood and I re-read them from time to time.
I sleep with a teddy bear.
I’m 24.

I had Cocoa Puffs for breakfast, Skettios for lunch and three frozen Ding dongs for dinner (with a glass of pinot gris, not recommended).
My philosphy of life is based on Rush lyrics, and Bugs Bunny cartoons.
I’m 34.

I still eat Cap’n Crunch, and I love Warner Bros cartoons. I like Jerry Lewis’ sense of humor, which he described on Letterman as “Nine. It comes from that place you were in when you were nine years old.” Silly, absurd stuff makes me laugh. I’m 46.

I’m a 31-year-old guy, and I like American Girls and twee fairies. (Of course, there are some fairy womenz that are just hot and I like them too…)

I sometimes think I’m a 5 or 6 year-old trapped in an 18-year-old’s body… :smiley:

At this very moment I have two stuffed animals (a Siberian tiger and a hammerhead shark) on the shelf in my dorm.

I love sugary cereals. (Well, some of 'em.)

I’m 19.

I have a bunch of stuffed animals, and I rarely clean my room.

I bought a Mr. Potato Head last year, and he’s sitting on my desk. I still love to use crayons and magic markers, although my tastes have graduated to Sharpies. I get fidgety and try to fight sleep like a little kid does. For shower gel, there’s nothing better than Baby Magic. I love playing with gross toys like Gak. I still eat Spagettios with meatballs, and Gerber’s meat sticks. I can’t wait to have kids because I’ll get to play with them.

If they made a Sit & Spin for adults, I’d buy one. God, I loved mine as a kid.

I’ll be 30 in 3 weeks. I’ll grow old, but I refuse to grow up. :cool:

  1. While I don’t buy them for myself, I take stuffed animals when given to me and currently have a bear, a lion, and a Spock teddy bear (rocking_chair rocks) in a box by the foot of my stairs.

  2. My apartment is a mess and looks like it is inhabited by a parent-less four year old.

  3. I love juice. Grape, apple, orange, cherry, Sunny-D, Capri Sun, that cheap stuff you buy for 89 cents a gallon and tastes like red sugar water… it doesn’t matter, I love it all.

I’ll be 23 next month.

I go see just about ALL of Disney’s Pixar(sp?) movies like Shrek, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles ect… Under the guise that I’m just doing it for my six yo son.

I too, eat Cap’t Crunch!

My bedroom is adorn with black light posters, beer girl posters and various cars and motorcycle posters. Oh and I have a Hustler centerfold hanging up in my Master bathroom. (This is more of a teenage thing I’d say.)

I get a whiney like a two year old when my GF doesn’t put out…

I love sugary cereals, and canned stuff like Spaghettios and Chef Boyardee.
I like to say things like “belbow” and “tumbly” when I’m feeling silly.
When I hurt myself I sulk a little, and make very childlike whimpering noises.
I love to go to the zoo, especially to see the “pengys” and “armydillos”.
I have many, many stuffed animals, the cutest ones I can find, and call them my “family” and arrange them on a shelf, or sometimes on the bed.
I like to get the toys that come with kids meals.
Candy/Slurpees/cookies/ice cream make me hum and sing.
I hum nonsensical tunes when happy.
I like some cartoons.
I play a lot of video games, but especially like the cuter ones, and I only like Nintendo. (I play Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, though I love Zelda and Mario, too).
I like pink.
I squeal (quietly, not screechingly) and/or shake my fists in joy when happy/excited.
Most things still amaze me, no matter how much I learn. There’s always something out there that’s quite stunning if you let it be.

Despite all of the above, in public I’m very shy and quiet. Before people get to know me, they often like me, but think I act the way I do out of idiocy. Some people never look beyond that, and that’s okay, if it makes them feel bigger or prouder, or whatever. I’m not hyperactive, even if my list sounds like I am - even though I have ADD, it’s not ADHD. I dress like an adult, I don’t pretend to be a teenage airhead, I just like to keep a little child-like outlook on life, as if everything is still new, and when you’re happy, it’s okay to show it, and if you’re hurt, it’s okay to grumble a little. If something is on your mind, just say it, and if you like something, don’t be ashamed of it - don’t “outgrow” some things, like toys, or pretend you don’t like something because it’s “cute” or “foolish”. My philosophy has become: “Simplify.”
At some point, I just stopped being ashamed of my adult self. If I didn’t act a little silly sometimes, I’d go insane. I’m not kidding.

I’m 26.

I just turned 44.

I love children’s books. I love cookies, milk, and peanut butter sandwiches. And I love acting silly – I make up silly songs and words, I do silly little dances… things like that.

I own a large stuffed Snoopy, 3 pound puppies, a cow pillow, a panther that roars when you press his paw and an old worn out grey bunny. (his eyes are missing but he is still soft and squishy) All of these are in various places in my bedroom.

The only animal that is truly “mine” in the entire house of 17 animals is my long haired hamster Julius Caesar. His cage is in my bedroom. I love that fuzzy guy.

My favorite Disney Movie is the Jungle book. I know the entire movie by heart and I actually sing along.

I own a pair of Scooby Doo slippers.

I can be extremely ticklish. My BF thinks this is funny I on the other hand do not.

I can not watch a scary movie without a pillow to hide my eyes from the super scary scenes.

I love toasted PB&J sandwiches with chicken noodle soup.

My favorite cereal is frosted flakes because They’re Grrrreat! :smiley:

I am 36

I like playing game boy games. When kids at the tutoring center I work at find this out they look at me like I was from another planet. From their prespective, I am a grownup, and they can’t really tell my age apart from anyone who might be 30 or even 40. So a grownup who plays gameboy is really wierd to some (but also totally awesome for others! :smiley: Kids really warm up when you have similar hobbies you can relate to.

I also freely admit to prowling arcades and LAN cafes in the efforts of crushing any ego that comes my way. I fondly recall a game of Starcraft I played 2v2, then 1 v 3 after a bit of treachery on my teammate’s end. I myself had not played Starcraft for 2 years, and I’m sure they were thinking i never even played it a day in my life. Even though the game had changed a bit after 2 years worth of patches, I still had some tricks up my sleeve, and weren’t they surprised when I stomped them all with the oldest trick in the book (Zealot Rush :stuck_out_tongue: ) After that I suddenly became really popular with them, and anytime I went to that LAN cafe when they were around, all the kids were begging me to be on their team (its just like sports, you know, everyone wants the big kid on their team. Same thing with PC games :stuck_out_tongue: )

Do you still have the monkey?

I have a huge collection of Disney movies and posters from the films and parks.

I listen to Christmas music year round.

I call people poopy-head under my breath.

I’m a little past 40.

I bet I have you all beat in the way of stufties.

I have about 25-30 stuffed animals and about the same amount of beanies. I’ve almost made a hobby of collecting them.

I rarely clean my room, and only make my bed if someone is coming over. (I never got the point of this - Why? I’m just going to mess it up again).

I am unbearably silly if I trust you.

I love silly jokes and puns.

my favorite cereal - really, the only one I like - is Lucky Charms.

I sleep with a small stuffed Baby Gund elephant (as well as my boyfriend, he just has to deal with it.)

We watch all the Pixar movies without any kids!

And when someone mentioned they had a Mr. Potato head doll, I decided I want one too, to put on my desk. I’m going to go get one today.

I get childishly pleased at personal letters in the mail.

And I just turned 29 a handful of days ago.

Why does this sound like some kind of spy code?
