      Seems that childhood days are back here. One of the pics containing a store full of toys is really nostalgic. At this age it often feels sometimes to play, add our own dialogues and to create a drama while playing with toys. Truly it was fun playing with the toys.

      I still have all 3 in my parent's crawl space with a huge GI Joe collection, including the USS Flagg.



      I never had the hovercraft or the F-14, those were my favorites.

      My oldest toys are probably the VAMP and RAM.

      robw_z: That's gotta be one of the cruelest Christmas stories ever. Peeking at presents is such a natural thing. I'd be surprised if your parents didn't do the same.

      And how can we forget these Hot Wheels Crackups? Had a few back in '84/'85:

      Growing up I can remember going to a store called Child world, and collecting mego dolls. Today's stores are getting filled with less and less toys! I believe it's all due to the PS3's XBox 360. And al these new hand held games as well.
