Questionaire for GR47

Question for GR47
While growing up, perhaps you've always wanted. Maybe it was a Barbie or Lego. But your parents messed up and got you something else similar. i.e. a Spice girl doll, or perhaps MegaBloks. It could be clothing. i.e. you wanted Levi's but got Wrangler. Please tell us your stories details are nice. They may get used in Giant Robot 47. Please including you name, age if you want, and your city.
