A Modal answer with band 7+

OK! I used to play with lots of toys in my childhood and I remember vividly the one toy which was my favourite. It was a remote car and run on the dry batteries. It had one joystick to control the car.

On my 12th birthday, my father gave me as a gift. Prior to this toy I had some other cars too, but they were more manual, I used to pull them backwards in order to accelerate in the forward direction. When I opened the remote toy car, I was surprised by the amazing car because I did not have and seen such toys before. My father also warned me that I shouldn't damage the car else I would never get such toys in future. I played with the toy very carefully.

I used to play almost every day after school. When my parents noticed that playing with this toy distracting me from my academic performance, I got a warning that I should only play with it for 15-20 minutes a day. I had no choice, but I was still happy that I could at least play with it. Sometimes I also used to take my remote car in school to show friends.

Overall, I was attracted by its function that without touching the car it is moving and diverted my mind to think about how it works. I will always remember my childhood toy and I bought a similar toy for my son.
