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.  Smile

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.

Mine would have to be my model train set and also Flight Sim. Think I started with version 4.0 back in 1990 or so.

Erector set!

I couldn't help smile at that one, the grin on the face of the kid in the yellow in the pic!  Big grin

I think my Lego set may well have been my best toy when I was younger.

Tonka trucks

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.

Anyway, just reminiscing.

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.

My absolute best memories are playing with these toys. Back then, the hardest decision was which one to play with first!
