I mentioned those above, but we called them Viewmasters. I found out that was just the brand name of mine. I Googled it and found out that they still have them (although they look a lot different).

This thread kind of reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld--the one where his girlfiend had all the cool toys? :rofl
Back in the old days, we just had chalk... just kidding
Easy Bake Oven
Barbies GALORE (w/tons of clothes and carrying case)
and we can't forget Pick-Up Sticks and Jacks:
and my favorite, Spyrograph

I loved Lincoln Logs. Tinker Toys were OK. I enjoyed playing cowboys & Indians (I know, it's no longer PC). I had a cool gun and holster set that had a little derringer as the belt buckle.

Oh, there are sooooo many...
Hungry Hungry Hippos
Operation (although the buzz used to scare me)
Parcheesi (did I spell that right?)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle action figures and all that
The Omega Virus (best game ever)
I like all board games ! Cluedo is my favourite !!!
When I was in Junior High, I loved Risk and Trivial Pursuit a lot. I guess I'm a sucker for board games too.
