In honor of Memorial day... but with a twist of fond memories
What was your all time favorite toy as a kid?
Mine was my first new 10 speed.... I still love biking.
I had this toy pop-up tree house with a family that lived inside, with all kinds of furniture. I remember I really, really wanted it and finally got it for Christmas. Can't imagine why I wanted it so bad...I hated playing with dolls.
What were those called? I think I remember them. They were like the hippy answer to barbie right? Oh what was the name of that family.....
Now it's gonna drive me crazy tyring to remember.
I remember I wanted this toy so badly. It was a sort of large gun/flashlight thing that showed slides on the wall. I thought it was the greatest thing.
My rocking horse...replaced by a real pony...replaced by a real horse!
I had a plain wood box. Inside was all plain wood nuts, bolts, screws and rods. It was awesome. Ah, the simple toys of the 60's and 70's.
I had endless fun with LEGO, especially when they introduced accessories like wheels and lights and stuff (this was the mid-60's).
Or if I go back even further, there was Tinkertoy, and Meccano...and model trains.
Oh, and those little plastic green army men were fun to blow up with firecrackers...(oh...you're such a meany!!)
Meccano was the best... spent hours building stuff with that...
my child favorite is my favorite. Red Ferrari Pedal Ride On Car
I'll second the tinker toys mention. I think that was the toy I played with the most, over the longest period of time.
...have to tell the truth...it was barbie and the gang with lots and lots of clothes...then moved on to my bike...then smoked a bit of pot, and it went on from there....
Tinkertoys and those red bricks to build with (precursor to Lego) and then of course my bike - from tricycle to bicycle
my favorite toy is a doll with pink hair I named: Emily.
I had her since I was 10. Still have her,I am 29 now.
Mine was my ATV. I had a little Yamaha Badger I used to ride in the desert behind our house. I even raced it, though I always got 5th place.

What is one toy you wanted so badly when you were a kid?Most of us had that moment when we were younger. We saw a commercial or walked by a toy store and suddenly there it was: the toy we had to have but couldn't get. What "useless piece of plastic" as coined by Dana...

The ultimate problem with two people wanting to have a loving long term relationship is MARRIAGE.Marriage is an implied vague and ambiguous contract that has been used forever. When the couple in the marriage decide to leave the marriage this implied marriage contract is useless. Divorce then...

With all the kids sitting on Santa's knee telling him those items they want more than anything, made me think about my childhood days. What did you want more than anything in the world, how old were you and did you get it?
