    It was in early 80’s, when father brought me from Canada sci-fi-looking, white heavy plastic, making many awesome shooting laser sounds with various light effects. Sigh…

    One of my favorite childhood toys was Steel Tec. It was a set just like Erector Sets and it was so much fun trying to use Lego-Creativity with real tools and real steel to try to build models :D

    I think legos were definitely one of my favorites growing up. I fondly remember combining legos from a technic formula racer with my regular legos into a neat little SUV that rolled surprisingly well on carpet :)

    Mecano. These were painted strips of metal with holes in them. You screwed them together to make carnival wheels and trucks. You even had a small electric motor so things moved. Best of all it never broke!

    If you count when I was a bit older, mine was stuff you could make with potassium nitrate, charcoal and sulfur. Unfortunately my father was a chemist so I sort of had to hide what I was doing.

    If you want to count just legal stuff, I liked my erector set.

    I was definitely a fan of Lego, though it was nice to see the shout out for Erector above, they both had their advantages and disadvantages.

    We had a large set of wooden building blocks. Each block was small and resembled a clay brick but with lego like interlocking pins. I built with them for hours.
