Matchbox cars were my #1 toy when I was growing up

sadly - mom got rid of all of them years ago - I had many many hundreds of them

I also had stompers (little trucks with a motor in em) - I used to take them and rewire them to run off of a 9 volt battery and then had a pulling sled where I would have my own mini truck pulls

I had a Chevy Corvair pickup. Pretty solid metal and plastic vehicle about 14 inches long. That little thing took me through many solitary hours playing by myself in the ditch in our back yard where I had roads and stuff.

Books
Tinker toys 4 sure
Hot Wheels
Bow and arrow (the ones with the suction cups on the end of the arrows)
Stick horse
Lego's
Squirt guns
Match-stick guns I used to carve out of my mom's clothes pins
Stuffed animals (yeah, wanna make somethin' of it?) \:D
Board games such as Checkers or Parcheesi

I used to take playing cards and using a clothes pin attach them to my bicycle frame so that they hit they clicked on the spokes when I rode. You could do at least 4 of them, 2 on each wheel. It made a wondrous sound!

There is at least one member here who in later life worked in the Lincoln Log Factory. My Brother Darrel aka derdlecar. He took me on a tour one time. What a treat! My little guy was all abuzz that day!

Much wetness,

Reality....most of us Americans probably don't know what "conker fights" are....so....
They are buckeyes with a hole drilled straight through and strung on a string about 12-18 inches long with a know on the end...then each boy swings his "conker" at each other and the first buckeye to break....loses.

I haven't thought about that game since we lived in England, 34 years ago!


Anyway......

I didn't have many toys growing up....dad drank all the money....
but I did have a

Johnny West....

He rocked.

squirt guns

One of the real treats of my childhood was one time when our mother let down her hair so to speak and had a water fight with us kids. It ranged all over the neighborhood and inside the house as well. Neighborhood kids got involved as well. Mom even ended up accidentally breaking one of the front room windows!

That was a real switch from the "mom" I knew. Didn't know quite what to think of it, but figured I'd take what I saw over what I was used to seeing. I think perhaps that may have been an indication that change was coming in the way she dealt with us as kids.

Lots of love,

John
