Woo hoo! I'm still a big kid for sure. :lol
I loved action figures; especially Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Masters of the Universe. :nod Also, my brother & I loved Legos, Brio Mech, Lincoln Logs, and all things construction. We still love Legos, in fact.
As far as the "games," Hungry Hungry Hippos was awesome. :lol So were Connect Four, Hi Ho Cherry-o, Sorry!, The Game of Life, Perfection, and Boggle (Junior, in this case.)
My brother is eleven years older than I, and I inherited all his cool stuff. :cool:
Oh yeah! Tinkertoys, Barbies, Viewmaster, Easy Bake Oven, and especially Spirograph. (Thanks for the photo Jewelsy!) Had a good collection of comic books but my Mom sold them in a yard sale. Luckily she didn't get her hands on my hockey cards. And my parents still have our Kerplunk, Avalanche, and Hats Off that my nieces and nephews now enjoy. I always wanted Lego, but my Mom said it was too expensive so I used to go to my friend's house after school so I could play with her brother's Lego. And I still collect Trivial Pursuit editions.
Great thread SG. :clap
My all time favorite was probably Tyco slot cars. My friends and I would spend hours playing with those. I also liked:
Girder and Panel - (samre concept as lincoln logs except they were plastic girders that you built buildings with)
Remote control cars
The last time my daughter was at my Dad's house, he dug out my old Lite Brite and Lincoln logs for her to play with.
I also lost much of my Star Wars collection to a yard sale. I had a special edition Boba Fet that you had to save up Mattel proof of purchases and mail away for. I decided to sell it at a yard sale my parents were having. Some guy came by, his eyes lit up and snatched it up for probably $5 or something. At the time I though five bucks was a nice amount, but what did I know? :mad:

Thumbelina doll, pick up sticks, and bzzzz Operation
and my ultimate fav-my Wonder Woman costume I would not take off.
Oh yeah, and how about Mouse Trap?
I used to love that one. I never actually played the game, I would just put the whole thing together and watch it work.

I liked paper dolls better than Barbies (I categorized Barbies as "too princess like" for me :lol ), I drew them clothes myself and we exchanged them between girlfriends. Also what is fun to see back on market is My Little Pony. They were my little sisters thing, but I did sew clothing for them all the time.
We had quite a bit Lego's and I liked those a lot. My best friend had a whole Lego city build on an old dining room table. That was the coolest thing :)
At some point I remember doing some neverending number of those shrinky dinks. My older son (5) would probably love that right now.
And one Christmas I got the Brio loom to weave tiny rugs for my doll house.
Of games I really liked Labyrith, that balancing a ball through a maze thing.
Legos are cool---except when you step on 'em!!!! :mad:
