Grammy-winner Ed Sheeran has admitted he spent 2,000 pounds on a selection of toys, his parents banned him from having when he was a child.
The 24-year-old singer, who recently announced he was taking a break from the spotlight, treated himself to a plastic gun, roller skates and a pirate ship over the Christmas period, reported Female First.
“As any kid that has good parents will know, when you grow up you’re not allowed things. I went into Toys R Us and just spent two grand on everything I wanted when I was younger.
“I was like, ‘I was never allowed that pirate ship so I’m having that, wasn’t allowed a Nerf gun so I’m having that, I wasn’t allowed a scooter so I’m having that.’ I bought roller skates, a yo-yo, those wheelie shoes… I haven’t used half of them but it was just that moment that I’m allowed to now. I bought everything,” the singer said.
The spending did not stop there as the flame-haired hunk also bought some plastic dolls.
“All the stuff I bought in the shop is in my house. But then I went on eBay and spent a day looking for the same dolls I had when I was younger and bought all of them as well.”
Sheeran said he is stashing the toys for his future children.
“So I have this cupboard in my house with everything from my childhood. I know my kids are going to play with them and have fun.”
