    What is one toy you absolutly LOVED when you were growing up?

    My favorite was definatly leggos. I could spend hours with those just creating whole worlds....and then destroying them lol. Had many of the space sets, and even some castle sets too. I think I STILL have them in a box in the attic.....hmmm....maybe I'm not too old for them yet. *runs up to the attic*

    Oh and another favorite "toy" was.....the stick. That's right, just the plane old stick that is found on the ground. What toy could spark so much imagination with so simple of a design.

    Age 8 and below only. Yep Lego! <3 Definitely fueled my imagination for a lot of years. I used to dream of going to Madurodam. icon_razz.gif It even developed to a minor obsession with models (miniature houses, trees, stuff like that) later on in my teens.

    And also a Panda teddy with one button eye missing that me and my brother used to fight over. Later on, a scruffy pale brown teddy with a red bowtie. My brother got a stockier dark brown teddy, he got to pick first, but I didn't mind that time.

    Growing up with a brother only a year younger than me... heh, our parents treated us like twins. What one gets, the other gets too. Must've been hell for them. We also made toys from everyday objects anyway, anything from rusty washers we find in the backyard (and pretend it's 'treasure'), to slingshots, to makeshift swords made from cracking and attaching together the dried pods of the Ipil-Ipil (Santa Elena tree).

    I was another Lego Nut, I could spend days building stuff that didn't make sense, just to get bored with it, take it apart, and build something else.

    Legos armed with your imagination.

    Crafts book for they provided me ideas on how to make... "stuff".

    Transformers, old transformers are great, new Transformers can't be transformed unless you're an engineer.

    Sling and slingshot, I felt bad for killing a young hen with one.

    Quote from an old song,

    "It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped whirrrrr when it stood
    still,
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will."

    Good gosh you all have dirty minds - we can hear them from over here!


    ....actually it was my etch-a-sketch I loved the most.

    A bunch of my favorite Hot Wheel cars and a pile of dirt was all I needed!
