    What was your favourite childhood toy, the one you wish you still had?

    Mine was the four storey Cindy house, with elevator, flushing toilet, hostess trolley and all kinds of other goodies.  My mum sold it because I hardly ever played with it (I just liked to look at it and keep it tidy, and wish that I could live in it!) - what I wouldn't give to have it back now!

    My favorite toys were my barbies and the Barbie camper and jet. I don't so much wish I still had them since they took up a lot of space. I gave them to a charitable organization a few years. i am not sure they were worth a lot but maybe someone enjoyed them.

    As a guy, it has to be Tin Can Alley:


    It was an infrared shooting game with realistic (or so I thought at the time) tin cans that you could shoot from 25 feet away.  I spent hours laying on the floor and practicing my aim until I could consistently shoot the cans off without missing.

    Still doing the same today but with real guns!

    Mine was the complete Voltron toy that I received in the 80's as a kid. It was awesome & everything linked into each other. Best gift ever smile

    Pooh Bear (Winnie the Pooh), as seen in my picture.  I loved him to bits, and I still have him.
    Shame about your (Girlie) Cindy House, my friend.  We all have our ways of playing with our toys and maybe she didn't realise that that was your way of enjoying it.

    An Ez-Bake oven. You could bake a cake with the power of a light bulb! I'd use it right now, I really would.
