    I know most of us have kids or grandkids so this should be an interesting thread.

    What toys do you miss that you are now playing with? We built a tower of legos last night and then "blew it up" (Smashed it while making bomb noises).

    What was your favorite toy? Do you get to play with it now?

    My favorite childhood pastimes always included firearms...

    First it was watching the Lone Ranger on TV then playing cowboys and indians...

    Then it was watching Combat on TV and playing soldier...

    Then it turned into watching the Man from Uncle and playing spy's...

    Wish I still had all those toy guns...they would be worth alot of money now.

    yeah, the one I had looked like a large Rugar in shiny plate. and a "Rifleman" Winchester with the quick firing gizzmo on the trigger. also a buffalo gun single shot I have forgotten the actual model it was replicating but you opened the chamber from on top and reset the hammer before it could be fired again.
