    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).

    I'm loving this thread! I still have Little People at my Mom's house. I'm waiting for my daughter to get a little older (she's two now) so that she doesn't choke on them. She has the ones that they make now, but they are much bigger than the older ones.

    I gave some to my daughter to play with. She just so does not appreciate how great they are!

    This thread kind of reminds me of that episode of Seinfeld--the one where his girlfiend had all the cool toys?

    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. If you pushed your stomach out, the derringer would pop out and shoot a plastic bullet, just like the guns did. Never did put out anyone's eye.

    When I was in Junior High, I loved Risk and Trivial Pursuit a lot. I guess I'm a sucker for board games too.

    All I have to say about bord games is :
