    What was your favourite toy when you were a kid, or your 'ring of power' so to speak'.

    The treasured item that you worshipped and would have killed to keep, or at least what your childish mind could conceive of as killing, (you were probably more likely to shin kick someone than kill them, I'm rambling, you know what I mean?

    I was obsessed with the Beast War toys. I had a huge collection of them and I never let anyone play with them. They were mine! My precious. My favorite was the original T-Rex Megatron. Couldn't beat it.

    Barbie and any accessory possible or affordable. I could never get enough of playing big girl when I was little. I still have every Barbie and all the stuff to go alone with her. It all lives in our storage cupboard. I wonder when my husband is going to make me throw it out???? smile

    I had two toys that I cherished. The first one was my power wheels jeep. I used to re-enact scenes from the Indiana Jones' movies and pretend often that I was getting away using the Indy jeep. It was so much fun as my neighbors also had power wheels too. Some were barbie corvettes or fire trucks, but we did just fine with the "car chases". -I also had my big wheel, when the jeep's battery was not charged.
    My second was my barbie Mermaid doll. I often would swim with the doll for hours on end, pretending I was also a mermaid. I could never get out of that pool or ocean, my parents had to convince me to get out...which required powerful convincing due to my strong belief that I was a mermaid and needed to be in the water 24/7 (or when I was NOT Indiana Jones).

    It's funny that you post a picture of those power ranger toys. The dragon zord on the left was a toy I always wanted, but never got. (The same is true of power wheels). I think my favorite toys growing up were Jurassic Park action figures. I liked them so much because they were really the only action figures I had that were generic people. So, I could use them with other toys and they wouldn't look too out of place. (They were the non-morphed power rangers too.)

    When I was growing up I remember wanting that Dragonzord toy... Never got it.

    For me, it was my Ninja Turtles action figures. I had the 4 turtles and the van. I would always have them as the "Heroes" in my toy collection. Fighting the toys to save the world and what not.

      The Ninja Turtles were so awesome. I was a little upset when I heard Michael Bay was heading up the remake, and that he was making the turtles aliens, but part of me is just glad to have them back in some form. Hopefully he doesn't butcher them!

    My favourite was my dolly who always had a mysteriously broken arm.
    Apart from that my firm favourites were a bunch of toy soldiers who I had dubbed them as my 'knights' in red coats...they were fun!
