Band 9 Model Answer
Let me tell you about my favorite toy I owned when I was ten years old. It was a superman, actually. I liked it because of the cartoons produced by the Japanese. But since I was extremely absorbed in model toys at the time so I pestered my parents constantly and, finally they agreed and were willing to shell out big bucks to afford it for me. I was so revved up when I got it in the toys store. It was very delicate and finely painted and modelled perfectly, just like my favorite character in the cartoon, so I almost played with it after class on the daily basis.
This toy carries great significance to me because I have ponged for it and it was hardly affordable at that time. So I always held it in my hand while watching the cartoon series. As a kid that was a fascinating and exciting moment for me. Superman was the replaceable hero in my mind, and I hope I could become a strong man in the future like him to protect others around me.
I still keep the toy in mint condition, and each time I happen to catch a glimpse of it, memories of my happy childhood just flash back and sometimes tears trickle down my face just imagining how the toy really means to me.
QUESTIONS FOR PART 3
Do you think it is good for children to play many computer games?
Personally I don’t approve that children play many computer games. Keeping the same posture in front of the computer for a long time takes a toll on children’s physical health. Besides, children tend to be addicted to computer games and neglect their study. There is another downside that children may become isolated and less sociable. It is harmful to their mental health.
Do you think playing with electronic toys has a good influence on kids?
I can hardly doubt the benefits of electronic toys, but it seems to befit boys than girls. Some car models run when a child pushes certain buttons, or gives out funny sounds. All these can trigger a sense of curiosity and thrill for the players, which later will hone their creativity and imagination abilities.
How do you think a child can benefit from playing a child’s game?
At first, the joy of playing games is universal because it constitutes a source of entertainment. Children derive great satisfaction in the game by making themselves and others happy. Besides, some games train their intellect and improve their mental and physical health. By playing games, some children develop their special interest, skills, and hobbies. And more importantly, I think children learn group skills by playing games, including cooperation and conflict solution. In games, they follow rules designed by others as well as create their own rules.
Which do you think is better, for children to play with toys alone or with other kids?
Each option has its own merits. Playing toys on their own can be a golden chance for kids to explore their potential. lf they are furious about and enthralled by the toy, they are likely to dig deeper into it to see the mechanism behind it. On the other hand, if they have others in company while playing, teamwork can be built as everyone tries to figure out the solution. Also, they can have a blast together with more laughter.
