    I still have my toy clown doll called "Patootie" that is close to 40 years old packed away. When you pulled the cord it used to say things like "What's red all over? My underwear!" and "Arggggh! Oh, Hi mister Lion." Still in good condition. I made my mom keep it, and now have it after she passed away.

    You?

    A stuffed smurf on top of the refrigerator.

    Some pencil crayons from elementary school and workbooks are in the basement along with my hockey card collection.

    Wow. I've given everything away over the years to nieces, nephews, cousins, etc. I don't think there's anything I own much older than 5 years, for that matter.

    An original GI Joe, in it's box (albeit the box is a bit tattered). Over 40 yrs old and it's packed away with my son's (newer one) that's about 15 yrs old. Mine would be like the one on the far left. We've come along way in designing real looking dolls!

    I have Mokey Bear, the bear my uncle (who died in a motorcycle accident shortly thereafter) bought from the hospital gift shop when he came to see me for the first time.

    He's named after a sad encounter with a space heater and my vain attempt to warm him up (I couldn't say Smokey, so he's just Mokey Bear).

    I have a muppet doll. It's still at my parents house. it has hardly any eyes left, all of the little plastic beads that gave composition to it's body have nearly all leaked out due to many fights and tug of wars with my siblings.

    It's still there and it will find it's way to me when I need it.
    It's 30 years old.

    My nieces and nephews pilfered, with the help of my father and mother and their underground railroad of toys leaving the house, all of my collectable pristine pieces de art of the great masters like Mattel and Hasbro. Yes, I kept all the boxes and not one doll was missing it's head.

    Well, to be honest, all of my Star Wars action figures were melted in the microwave or burned out in the yard over a cigarette lighter. That's the only way I could keep Darth Vader's head attached to the C3PO body.

    Man, that's hysterical. Ditto — so I'm afraid I have no toys that survived my screwed-up imagination. I have one stuffed animal, got him when I was four and lost a tooth. But he has a huge, yellow and black burn mark on his torso from when I held a lightbulb against him for too long while attempting to see through him like an X-ray. Also, his head is barely stitched on because I cut it off in order to give him a "stuffing transplant." icon_wink.gif

    Oh man...

    My mom donated ALL of my old childhood toys to Goodwill when I started high school without asking.

    I don't think I've ever been so angry in my entire life.

    Anyway, as far as longest owned, that goes to either a stuff tiger my grandma got me for Christmas when I was seven or eight, or a teddy bear I got at the railroad in Colorado.

    The tiger purs when you depress its chest icon_biggrin.gif

    It's either this caterpillar with sneakers that I call dreambug, or my NES. They're both from before I was born icon_smile.gif

    Mr. Bear.
    He was given to me by my favorite aunt who is like second a mother to me.
    I had a really volatile father which only exacerbated my propensity towards being a HUGE cry baby.
    When I was in my early 20's I took Mr. Bear with me on a tour of Europe and the Mediterranean. I took photos of Mr. Bear on trains, at the Acropolis, the Blue Mosque, at the Pyramids and pretty much anywhere noteworthy.
    One of our family pets chewed his one eye out when I was about 9.
    His other eye got tore off when my backpack (that he was tied to) fell off a truck driving through the Sinai Desert. I made my travel companions scour the road till we found it.
    I had him restuffed a few years back, in his stuffing are mementos of my childhood and that particular trip.
    Mr. Bear is going to be interrid with my bones... icon_smile.gif

    I have my trusty Saint Bernard since I was a single digit. Always sat on my bed and I still have him. He symbolizes an unconditional love a dog gives for a lifetime that I look for in people. icon_redface.gif

    I still have a couple of HO Scale locomotives and cars from when I was about 16 or 17, and they still work.

    I have a wonderful old illustrated book, The Golden Book Of Science For Boys And Girls, that had belonged to my cousins but that I was the most frequent reader of (mostly due to the lush painted illustrations by Harry McNaught) and when they were cleaning house one year, they gave me that book. It sits atop my bookshelf.

    Probably a Creeple Peeple, 'thing' I made in the mid '60's and it's still on the original pencil. In hindsight, probably a good hint that I was gay since the eyes were rhinestones I'd pried out of a dog collar and the fluorescent feathers sticking out of it's head. All of the colors of the goo I used for the 'thingmaker' were fluorescent.
