The first thing that comes to my mind here is my baby blanket. It was given to me before I turned 1 year of age and I ended up carrying that thing with me everywhere until I was 9 or 10 years old. And while I no longer carry it around or use it, I know that it's still in our house somewhere. It might be in a memory box or something.

I don't have a clue what happened to my original birth certificate. I have a copy of one in my drawer but Christ knows where the original is.

Somewhere stowed away there is a stuffed Paddington Bear I used to absolutely love when I was little.

He had no boots, a blue rain jacket and a yellow hat. Google search seems to pull up most with red hats.

That is a good question.

 

My room.

 

Heh, not really. I actually don't remember, although at my age, I'm bound to spontaneously remember/find it eventually.

A Rhode Island seal coin, and a couple of really smooth skipping rocks I found as a kid.

Nintendo 64. I don't know how it's even lasted this long.. I've had it since.. I'd say around 2000/2001. All I know is that I was really young when I got it.. :D

Paddington is from the 1950s, but my stuffed one was not. My grandmother bought him for me somewhere.

If we go with my plushies the oldest is the one my grandma got for me after I was born. For video games it would be my Gameboy Color and Pokemon Red. I wasn't given my social security card and birth certificate until I was 19 so I can't go with that.

I've owned my ps1 since I was 6 years old. So that makes it 15 years old which is my oldest possession.

I have several plushies that have been with me as far back as I have memory. I still have all my old toys and I cherish them more than anything else I own. They're my family!  :twi:

A dog plushie that I named Lisa, got her in 1999 and still have her. That is something I cherish. ^-^

A couple of books my parents had written for me. Somehow they survived after everything else was destroyed.

   Well, can't remember much at all from my childhood, so I'm at a lack of nostalgia there. My memory never has been stellar. Hmm, do remember having a keepsake christmas box of my baby teeth but those cracked in half from age eventually. Don't recall what happened to that first lock of hair we kept either...

 

  Most of my books are at least a decade over despite constant revision & having to whittle through them every time I moved. No, what I remember the most, is this dingy, old half blue, half black coat. It's a simple affair, likely gotten from Goodwill. Outer layer of very thin windbreaker, water-resistant material & an semi-thick layer closer to me. Most wear its had is from me blowing the bottom of the pockets out and sewing them back together myself or removing that bottom drawstring that bugged me.

   I've had that coat pretty much ever day I can remember. Don't think its ever been more then a quick grab away from me at any point in my life. I remember wearing that coat to & from the first high school I attended. I remember huddling in that shoddy blue parka even in the dead middle of a California summer. I remember using that coat as a blanket on days I've been sick & when I twisted my ankle that one time when even my backpack betrayed me.

 

   I've lived in this coat, painted in & on it, tossed my cookies on it, fallen in the mud with it...

  It's my shell against the world. While I've grown more to where I can't suck my legs into it anymore; its still big enough to consume my hands & cinch tight the hood enough to the point where all you can see is my nose.

  Linus mighta had his security blanket, but can he zip it up around him? Hah!    My coat...

              Yeah, I got up & put it on halfway though typing this. What about it?

 

  Sure, maybe I'm greedy, a horder. Those black loafers of mine that I've almost worn a hole into are a good example of that. But I don't like to give up on those things that have stayed with me.

The oldest thing that I think I still own to this day is a plushie of a dog that was named Benji from Build a Bear Workshop.
