          I didn't have too many, maybe 5 or 6.  lol  of course, it was the wrong decade, yet, for girls to play with toys meant for boys. hmm  Can't even remember how I got them, certainly not as presents. lol  maybe I found them at the beach or the park.  lol

            Lol! I had dozens of them! It was there like all over my room and I used to keep playing with them all day, obviously I wasn't studying much then. tongue And I'm not surprised girls play with them either, I've seen a far too many girls play with them, myself. big_smile Hahah, yeah! You find many of them all around the beaches and parks too lol. big_smile
