Remember those days when you were playing Mario Bros. and Galaga on your Nintendo Family Computer? What about the time you were building whatever you like with your Lego blocks? Or do you remember when you wore costumes of your favorite cartoon characters and roleplayed? Those were good times, indeed. And what if you can relive those childhood moments as an adult?
Well, if you’re one of those adults who would jump at the chance to recapture the fun times that you had as a child, then this is good news for you. There are many ways now to enjoy the activities you loved as a kid. Take a look at three of them.
- Play video games
If you loved video games when you were a kid, there’s no reason for you not to play computer games again. Get yourself one of those gaming consoles (Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, etc.) and be amazed at the better graphics but harder games.
But if what you’re after is playing your favorite childhood video games, Nintendo’s Family Computer and NES Classic, which were re-released a few years back, will be the perfect consoles for you. Playing video games on your laptop or desktop is also an option. There are many great PC games, like Apex Legends and Doom Eternal, that’ll surely capture your interest. For a better playing experience, you can even build your PC specifically for gaming.
- Have fun building
If you think you’ll still enjoy whiling away your time by building something with your hands, you should go for it. There are now many building toys that cater to adults as well. Lego, for one, hassets specifically designed for grown-ups. If you love Marvel, you can get the 2,996-piece SHIELD Helicarrier set. Or you can buy one of those Technic construction kits, such as the Porsche 911 GT3 and Bugatti Chiron, to satisfy the car enthusiast in you.
Apart from Lego, 3D puzzles can also offer you a fun time building with your hands. You can, for example, get Wrebbit puzzles to build famous structures-real or fictional-like the Taj Mahal, Neuschwanstein Castle, and Hogwarts Great Hall.
- Get in character
If you’ve always had a great time playing a character, why not play dress-up more often? Playing dress-up or cosplay (Costume and Play) is no longer limited to Halloween, birthday, or office parties. There are now fan conventions you can regularly attend as Batman, Darth Vader, or whoever your favorite character is. Getting your costumes shouldn’t be a problem as well because many stores are offering customized or ready-to-wear outfits of characters from popular cartoons, comic books, video games, or TV shows. If you have time, you should consider making your own costumes to ensure that they’ll be unique and personalized.
Bring Back the Child in You
Your childhood days are probably the best you’ve ever had. You got to do the things, including playing video games, building things, and playing dress-up, that you loved the most. The good thing is you can still enjoy these things even now that you’re an adult. You just need to find the time to indulge yourself, especially the child in you.
