How about Lincoln Logs and the toy fort with the Soldiers, Cowboys and Indians. And all kinds of toy guns and TimeBomb.

An armed society is a polite society.

Davyboy may know of these, but I loved my collection of Dinkey Toys army vehicles. They were made in Britain.

My BMX bike was by far the best toy I ever had...

G.I Joe action figures... at some point I had around 50-60 of them, and of course I had every kind of vehicles, boats, aircrafts...

Rambo action figures... I only had 10 to 15 of them...

and tons and tons of LEGOs... with the legos I build stuff for the G.I Joes and Rambo

“You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that, my dear friend, is the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
Dr. Adrian Rogers”

I LOVED the metal loader Tonka toy i had. In retrospect, there were some sharp edges to keep Darwin's theory going.

I also really liked this musket i got for my 4th birthday that used odd-looking paper roll caps to propel a cork ball out the barrel. The muzzle speed was probably in the inches/second rather than feet/second, but it was awesomely fun while the cork balls lasted.

The Bear brand bow i had with the "safety" arrows would probably get a parent into a sit-down with child protective services nowadays, but it kept me occupied for months.

Re Lawn Darts: 1st, those in BB's pic look funny, like the plastic veins/fletching is too translucent or flimsy-looking. 2nd, my dog took one to the noggin from at least 20 feet up with no visible damage (yes i got her a tasty treat to keep her from telling).

Overall, though, the woods at the end of the block provided the most entertainment with fort building & war games & such.


Dead Bears, the only good kind.

Oh I had the tonka dump dozer crane loader and bucket loader.

I painted my dump green and shot it with my bb gun and said it had seen combat. I would put my knees in the bed of that thing and ride it down the hill in the back yard all the time. It was beat up rusty but it still worked and rolled like it was new.
