UNO was also good for pissing off your loved ones when you threw down a "draw four"

Remember when cap guns were made outta metal? Now they're friggin' orange and cream colored plastic with bull barrels. When I was 8 or 9 I had a cap revolver based on a civil war era colt. It was a full frame revolver with a hexagonal barrel and a Confederate army charging rod. I loved that revolver. I'm going to check Amazon and see if I can find a picture.

Who remembers building a crystal radio? I remember getting my kit mail order from radio shack ...


And S&H green Stamps! I'd spend hours helping my grams putting them in books then going to town to the Green Stamp store..

How about all metal Tonka trucks.

Dad built a cement block out building when we were kids. He would try to get 3or 4 courses of block laid on one corner every weeknight then do the walls between on Saturday. Dad was an accountant/auditor, he did not lay block fast. Especially since before he could mix mortar he had to dig all of our Tonka trucks and tractors out of the sand pile.

Someone mentioned the Six Million Dollar man, how about lunch boxes with thermos with your favorite tv characters on the lid.

yes! the old metal Tonka Trucks and equipment! my brother and i had a whole bunch of them. those trucks and equipment were built like tanks.

i remember the start of school season, getting all your school supplies and having to pick out a cool lunchbox for the school year. and the lunchboxes were metal and the thermos was lined with glass.

One thing I remember is my dad's folding fishing knife with the additional scaler blade; not many makers still putting those out anymore... had a heckuva time finding one recently to add to my collection. Case and a few others still make them.

i remember my father getting me a walkie talkie kit one time. had to solder different things together to put it together. that was where my father taught me how to solder electrical wiring and components.

i remember the hobby of doint models learned from my father. my father use to years ago biuld the fabric covered balsa wood models. the type where you had to fit and glue the wood parts together and they had glue on fabric covering. my brother and i would just sit for hours and watch Dad build those plains. he got us started on building plastic models. all three of us would be sometiimes working side by side in his work shop building our respective kits.
