I still have that. We got it as a hand me down. My daughter likes building it and watching it go.

The latest call of duty etc is fine if you want (haven't had time for that stuff in years), but....EVERY kid should spend some time on an "Adventure"

#1264 4 years ago

Several but I remember this one (see below) and another that was a yellow weight lifter. I think they are from the early 60's. Wacky packages had many of the series years ago when I was young.

Some of you guys who still have your 30-40-50 year old toys sound like you have a little bit of "hoarder" in your blood

#1276 4 years ago

I still have my favorite toys from when I was a kid!

My "toy" will be 48 years old this coming May 1st. Doesn't look anything like when it was new. It's sooooooo much better now.

Do your Pit cards have holes in them like ours do from slamming them on the bell?

I dug this guy out of my mother's attic a little while ago, a Christmas present from 40 years back. Surprisingly enough, I put some batteries in and it fired right up. I could still remember how to program it: "Forward 4, Right 45, Hold 1, Fire Cannons 3, Reverse 1..." Hell, the electronic sounds are better than what's in my Paragon, and that came out a couple of years later.

BTW, my cat was not amused.

#1281 4 years ago

At a time when every kid my age were playing with Millennium Falcons and AT-ATs, I had.....Richochet Racers. I just liked gun toys and shooting things.

Matchbox was a big one for me. I have been collecting Matchboxes since I was 4.
This display is circa 1969 and I remember it when I was 5 or 6 when I went to the dime store. I found this one on ebay a few years ago. It came with the original box and the motor works great. I like to turn it on just watch it spin and remember what it was like to be 5.

Seems to me there was a rare matchbox car that sold for really stupid money several years ago. Like 10 or 20 thousand. ...Maybe it wasn't matchbox but I remember it being really expensive.

Anyone else watch The Toys that Made Us on Netflix? It's a documentary series about what went on behind the scenes with various famous toy lines. Very entertaining. Can't wait for another season.

Yeah, i thought one of the most interesting parts were the relative differences in enthusiasm, sleeziness, etc. in the people from the different companies. You could really tell the guys from Kenner were fans at heart and loved what the were doing, while the people from Mattel were just sitting around trying to figure out how to exploit the mind of a 5 yr old. Hasbro seemed somewhere in the middle.

A lot of divas in the toy design business. In that respect, the show reminded me a lot of The Secret History of Comics.

I like your Boy's Life ad.

"125 steel darts". ...........................That would nor be happing today.

"Guaranteed 15 years"...........................................................That is an interesting number for a guarantee.

It is an interesting ad.
