I know I am only 18, but I was a strange 9 year old.
I bought most of my toys from yard sales. My favorite was a snub nose revolver that shot caps. Rathe than that, I made my toys. I would go up into the forest and make weapons. I would make wooden daggers, swords, spears and dad even helped me make a shield. I also made bows with yarn as the string. I then taught myself how make sheaths and quivers. At first I weaves it all, but then I learned that I could spendy chore money on cloth.
I had the dagger on my low back, the arrow quiver on my thigh, the sword on my back and the bow in my hand. I then got a medicine bag and learned about native American herbs. I harvested them and actually used them sometimes.

I made extra and the nieghbor hood boys and I would play Indian war.

My dad had enough military surplus we outfitted all of the neighborhood kids and we had wars. We would set up full camps with pup tents. If you had a real looking toy rifle you used it if not you used a stick and rock were grenades. We played outside all day outside because we had no video games and there was nothing all day on the 3 chanels we had except soaps and we didn't have air anyway. Or we would ride our bikes all day with no helmets or pads and I had the stitches to prove it.

You see, this is why I wish video games would remain in a building called an arcade. Granted, I like video games, but I do not play them all of the time. I pick up about 1 adventure game a year and beat. This year is Fallout 3.

I didn't get video games until I was about 14 or 15. So I pretty much grew up w/o them. I live in a depression house so we have one window air conditioning.

Now days I talk to 11 year olds and they say that they have been trying to beat Pokemon for the past week while sitting in front of the air conditioning.
This makes people pussies. -_-
