Till I was about 7 or so I would have to say it was a toss up between my Big Wheel or my Whirly Bird toy Helicopter. I guess if it was good wheather the Big Weel, other wise the Helicopter.....After that my BMX Bike I guess...

I loved Legos and Barbies. Also loved my Big Loader Construction Set.
Something I always wanted but never got when I was small was Brio trains. Now, I have a great collection of them and enjoy getting them out from time to time. They are the first thing my little nephew asks for whenever he comes over.

Lego, Hot Wheels, Lego, Matchbox and Lego! My dad spoiled me with Matchbox cars when I was a kid, he'd bring a new one home for me everyday from work. I used to have drawers full of them, too bad I don't have them anymore.
Yeah, those were great. It is just me, or have they really gone downhill. Mine were all metal except for the wheels and pipes. And dog-gone-it if I wasn't always losing their "smokestacks."
Mine was probably a General Custer figurine and the original Aurora Godzilla model(s), particularly the one with the glow in the dark features (ironically, there's one on e-bay right now). I was big into trucks, soldiers, and monsters. Of course, back then it was "bulldozers" and "army men."
Me and a friend of mine had to semi trucks we'd carry carnival rides around in. We unload the trucks, set up the rides (which were a combination of Lego's and Lincoln logs), play awhile, load up again, and then off to the next small town.

Matchbox car and Majorets were my favourite toys I had hunderds of them and still have them in the garage in some boxes, I would spend hours playing with those toy cars making cities and just rolling them around my fake traffic jams and accidents. After that I like my N64 alot especially the games Pilot Wings and Ken Griffery Junior slugfest.

Oh man, Erector set! I used to build skyscrapers with that, it was soooo cool. I also loved Tonka trucks and Matchbox cars, my Lionel train set, and those electric race cars on a track, whatever you call em. Who'da thought I'd end up a poofta?
