I grew up in the 70’s and 80’s and unicorns were big back then. I had lots of different figures, cups, mirrors, etc. To this day I still like them but only have a limited amount of my collection left. But I find it nice that they have kind of had a resurgence in the last few years. I have a great niece who is wild about them.
My daughter however chose a different mythical creature to like. Just after she was born The Little Mermaid came out from Disney. So she had the mermaid costume, doll, stuffed animal, playsets, etc, And of course she watch the movie until the tape wore out.
And last by not least is my sister and her daughter who are fans of dragons. My niece has drawing, figures, stuffed animals, a tattoo, etc. My sister has the dragon tattoo in common with my niece.
So those are the myths that are a part of my life… what is your favorite mythical creature? Fairies, trolls, centaurs, ogres, giants, phoenix, cyclops, etc. …?

Okay, I know they are not real but they are my favorite mythical being. I started a small unicorn collection in middle school and still have a handful of them that I cherish. I suppose it goes in line with my love of horses as a unicorn is just a horned horse with magical properties. They even got a small part in the Harry Potter films and books. An entire movie was done for The Last Unicorn (which is a very sad thought). They are in many different cultures and even religions. Let’s face it… you wish they were real too!
