Not "daddy or mommy" bought it for me but one of my brothers for my birthday in 1990...
But before that he bought as gift for me a Philips VG5000 in 1983 and Thomson TO9 in 1985... :D

I was 10 at that time, it was in 1987, my dad bought it (a 1040 STF with a SC1224 monitor) for Christmas. Until that time the computer we owned was a TI99/4A. I cannot tell you the awesomeness of discovering my first ST game on the screen. IIRC the first game launched was Crazy Cars II (not the best game at all, but the first...).
1040 STF (TOS 1.02 FR) - 520 STE (TOS 1.62 FR + 4 Mb) - Falcon 030 (TOS 4.04 FR) - MIST

I was (still am) a Certified Respiratory Therapist then, saved up my money and
bought a bundle. Worth every single penny! :)
