    Default Best childhood toys ever!

    What were some of your all time favorite toys and do you still play with any of them??? Do you have some memories of your toys that you would like to share?

    For me,
    My Little Pony, Remote Control cars. Crayons for the bathtub, jump rope, care bears, teenage mutant turtle action figures- I had like the whole set complete with Shredder and that brain dude that would live in that robot suit. When I was really little I would live on those things where you sit on it and and twist yourself around in circles. I loved that freaking thing to death!
    I also loved my little three wheeler and would drive that thing for hours. Lite Brite was awesome too. I also loved my bicycles and lived on them too.

    I didn't like barbie dolls and so whenever a family member would give me some- I would reinact Thelma And Louise and drive them off a cliff,lol. I didn't like dolls either- I always prefered stuffed animals.

    I still play with bath time crayons and I still own my little ponies,lol.
    Me and hubby made an RPG Nutrition Game

    I didn't play with toys much as a child, I was too busy reading Childcraft books, figuring out my computer (without Internet access), and watching KERA 13 for several hours at a time. I also liked to look words up in the Dictionary. Those kind of were my "toys," actually. A little later on, I also liked playing RPG's, although they usually took me about a year to figure out since I didn't know about Player's Guides or have Internet access. I tended to focus more on the characters and the plot, which intrigued me, and that's why I kept at it.

    Mostly, I liked playing in/with boxes when I played. I also enjoyed petting my cat, but he wasn't technically a toy. Oh, and I did have a couple of stuffed animals that I was attached to, I used to talk to them and imagine their responses.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    lego bricks, model railways, water guns would qualify as my most exemplary toys. I dont remember ever using most of my free time with strictly toys tho.

    I made lot of items from paper, glue and scissors and make all sort of different geometric figures. Liked it for some reason. Also woodworking, so my toys were saws and hammer ^^
    I drew and painted a lot, practiced with bicycle a lot.. and played and programmed with commodore 64.
