    What was your favorite toy? Or did you have more than one special toy?

    For me I had 3 toys that I cherished the most. The first being a stuffed animal snake named Slither. I was obsessed with snakes as a kid. I got him as a birthday gift one year and I took him with me everywhere. I would wear him around my neck or swing him around(he was very long) at the store. I still have him in my room.

    My second one was a Pocahontas doll that I had. My mom bought her for me(I'm sure my dad was thrilled) because I was all about Pocahontas from kindergarten to 2nd grade. I had Pocahontas sheets, Pocahontas yogurt, Pocahontas action figures. But this doll was my favorite. She was the Cynthia to my Angelica (of course we were way more fabulous). I use to dress her in a different outfit everyday. I should look for her sometime I still have her in storage...

    Lastly my toy cars. I would carry 4 or 5 of them around with me at a time, in my Barney purse of course! I remember showing my dad my cars and saying "and look at my Barney purse" to which he replied "Yeah we need to get you a wallet." I had a ton of cars but the majority of them got passed down to my brothers and they are long gone by now.

    So what about you guys?

    I was a rather precocious little brat.

    I had a turquoise stuffed dog that I called, appropriately enough, Woof Woof.

    Through wear and tear, Woof Woof developed a hole behind his tail which I discovered was tremendously fun to hump before I fell asleep.

    No, I'm not making this shit up.

    He didn't look exactly like this but close enough to get the concept.

    Meccano , i spent so much time playing with it icon_biggrin.gif
    Just in case nobody know what is a Meccano :
    Meccano is a model construction system comprising re-usable metal strips, plates, angle girders, wheels, axles and gears, with nuts and bolts to connect the pieces. It enables the building of working models and mechanical devices.
    In the 60's , it was only manufactured in France , my French side of family ,shipped one to me for Christmas , he took a month to arrive .....lol

    Now days they have a more modern version of it with plastic parts ...I still have mine with some parts missing though ...

    I never really had a favorite toy as a kid when I was growing up, to be honest. But then when the first PlayStation system came out I was playing it all the time. So, I guess that does counts as my favorite toy when i was a kid. LOL.

    But I did have Hot Wheels. And also that MotorCity Track that you could put together. Oh, and Legos!

    Ah. I had that exact train. Not much of a layout though. Just an oval on a sheet of plywood that could be hidden away.
    In fact, I had a whole lot of "gilbert" stuff. Chemistry Set, Microscope Set, etc.

    I had Lionel train sets beginning in 1953. At first they were only for Christmas, but then my Father had a custom table built for them in our basement, so I could nejoy them year-round.

    I also had all the Gilbert stuff. Many parents wanted the toys to be "educational", a trend that took hold in the 1950s. I especially liked construction toys, like Erector sets, and all manner of building blocks, pre-Legos.
