London: Hollywood star Tom Hanks has said he is still a big kid when it comes to toys and he likes to play with his children`s "all the time".

The `Da Vinci Code` star, who is father to Colin, 32, Elizabeth, 28, Chester, 19, and 12-year-old Truman, enjoys playing with his children`s toys, reported a news website.

"I play with toys all the time. I play with the little goofy things my kids still have like cars and planes and I hold them up and imagine the same stories I did when I was a kid," said Hanks, who voices the character of cowboy doll Woody in `Toy Story 3`.

"My own toys weren`t collectibles - they went through hard use so any toy I had was eventually pounded out of existence or they broke. They went the best way any toys can - they were played with out of existence," he added.

However, the 54-year-old actor also revealed he found it difficult to make friends as a child, something which has transferred to his adult life.

"Since I moved around so much as a kid, I didn`t have an awful lot of friends. I don`t think it`s part of my make-up to completely open up. I can pretend to be very good friends with people then not have anything to do with them for 18 months," said Hanks.
