Was there a toy you wanted really bad as a kid and never got?

For me it was a cotton candy machine. My Mom never bought it because she thought it was messy. It always bugged me because I wished so hard for it. Was there ever one special toy you wanted so bad but you never got? What was it? Also, would you buy yourself one now if you had the chance to find one?

A Sit n' Spin. Those were the BEST. If they had a grown-up size one, then yes, I would buy it.

I had one of those Easy Bake ovens ... it didn't work very well (as a rule, I don't think cooking with a lightbulb is a good idea).

I always wanted a Rainbow Brite doll and never got one.

I had most of the Rainbow Brite dolls... I was crazy about that stuff.

I always wanted one of those HUGE trampolines......but the yard was too small for one.

Always wanted a Barbie mansion too....wished for it every chance I got....never got it.

I always thought Ree Yees was the quintessential Star Wars figure, and I never got my hands on one as a kid. I wasn't able to find a vintage one until earlier this year (which I bought, of course).

I wanted that damn Snoopy SnowCone machine.

It was red and white with a lever that you twirl round and round and then it makes somewhat watery snowcones.


It was the coolest, nonetheless!!!!!!!

I wanted one of those snoopy machines too ... my parents wouldn't get it for me cause they didn't want me eating more sugar than I already did.

I badly wanted a Baby Alive doll...you mixed up powdered "baby food" with water and the doll actually ate it. You could also give it a bottle. The best part (in my opinion as a 5 year old) was that after you fed it, the baby pooped! My friend had one and even though it made a really disturbing mechanical sound when it ate, I wanted one SOOO bad!

Every time I asked for it, my mean mom would say "I'm not buying you any doll that shits its pants" and I never got one.

I cant think of a toy that i ever really wanted but My Dad bought me a train and cars cause my little brother didnt like them so I had this REALLY cool Thomas The Tank engine train set and i loved it and this little yellow car and there was a driver infront and you pushed his head down and it popped up and the car flew accross the room...heheh

Then I had a massssiiiive BIG YELLOW TEAPOT with people inside and a jasper car my aunt got me one year(a blue car u sit inside and peddle yourself aboot)

I had a barbie doll and tiny tears but when i was 6 i tried to flush tiny tears doll away and cut all the hair from my barbie doll...i was a naughty kid
