I wanted one of those kid cashier things where you run the fake item over the scanner and it beeps just like a real cash register I might buy one now, but I'm old enough to actually get a job as a cashier if I really wanted to..

*Edited because I messed up the face and put :rolleyes

What is really fun is when you have small kids in your family ... because you can buy them all of the really fun toys you never got to have as a child ... and maybe the kid will let you play with them.

A toy car you could ride around in.

I had a Barbie Dream House thing.. but it was really cheap -- lots of cardboard. And my cats loved it, sat in all the rooms and then they broke it.

"Some kids go, 'whoo whoo' when they sit and spin" remember that commercial?

I always wanted one of those swing sets with a catwalk and a lookout tower on top. I had a swing set but not like that.

I was a spolied little brat. I got most everything I wanted. Well, except for that Teddy Ruxpin...and one of those life-sized Barbies. But I think I'm insane enough now without having had those two fucked up toys to play with when I was a kid.

Aww! That sucks. I got mine only because my mom and dad put it on special order. I remember going to Toys R Us with my dad to get it. The woman who babysat me, her daughter had SIX. And I thought I was spoiled. Bitch.

Well being a child of the 80's I had a lot of the Voltron figures, Transformers too but for some reason my parents never got me Robotech toys. Robotech was one o the popular japanese cartoons of the 80's and had really cool toys. I wanted the cycle that turned into armour and the jet fighters. I never got them. Oh well.

Sadly a lot of my cool toys were lost when my father and I moved out of our old house when he divorced my mom. I don't know how it happened but it really messed with me for years afterwards.

I guess back then I put too much emotional attatchment to my life as a kid wwhen my parents were together. So my toys were symbolic of the happiness I had. I had dreams where I would try to go back to our old house and try to find my toys.

Another thing is that a lot of the toys i played with and owned then are worth a lot of money on ebay.

I tried to look up some of the toys I owned and they go for a lot of money.

I wanted a talking Stacie doll (Barbie's British cousin in the 60's) but no one would buy me one because they went haywire so fast. I got other Barbies but not that one. I wanted an Incredible Edibles bug maker, where you could pour goo in the molds and make bugs. Some of them glowed in the dark and some you could eat. My parents thought it was so gross.

I was working at JC Penney in the toy dept. in 1984 when the Cabbage Patch kids came in. We employees weren't supposed to save them for ourselves, but I stuffed one in the stockroom because my neice (Autumn) wanted one so bad. It was a blonde haired one with braids named Zara. I got away with it!

My daughter wants a trampoline now and bugs me all the time. I haven't bought one because I don't have much room for it, and I'm afraid of being sued if some kid sneaks in the yard while I'm gone, falls off and breaks its fool neck. This is not outrageous in my neigborhood. People have sued over pears falling off a tree hitting a truck, dogs snapping at someone (even though the dog was antagonized) and someone getting their toe stuck in the crack of a board on a neighbor's deck.
