    My favorite toy as a child was Electric Football. I am sure everyone remembers watching their football players vibrate across the playing field. Boy, we have come a long way with toys since I was a kid.

  • David Babcock December 28, 2012, 8:36 am

    My favorite toy as a child was the infamous Tinker Toys.

  • josh wessel December 28, 2012, 8:52 am

    My yellow metal Tonka dump truck which doubled as a scooter to go down the drive way in

  • Kelly D December 28, 2012, 9:17 am

    I loved my Little People Playsets, especially the school house.

  • Ken Schoenberg December 28, 2012, 9:21 am

    Not an entry (obviously). Just wanted to tell people that it is now almost three months and my seven-year-old son still enjoys playing with this set. Best of all…he and his brother still haven’t broken any of it (it must be made of Kevlar).
    Good luck all!

    I grew up without much money or toys. My favorite toy was the slinky because I could pretend it was a pet, a friend, play pretend music, pretend it was a dinosaur, walk up and down the stairs, fling it back and forth as in catch. It was just about everything.

  • gregg olsen December 28, 2012, 9:52 am

    Loved Lincoln Logs, glad to see that they are still around.

  • Jim T December 28, 2012, 9:59 am

    Favorite toy was an electric train purchased from a local hardware store. Many happy hours playing with it.

  • Rusty Grafman December 28, 2012, 10:53 am

    My favorite toy was the snoopy shaved ice maker. 30 years and still for sale.

  • Rob Weber December 28, 2012, 11:11 am

    My favorite toys as a child were Lego building blocks. Had the entire castle and pirate sets! Can’t wait until my son is old enough to enjoy them like I did! Right now for him the Choo-choo’s rule though! LOL

  • David Young December 28, 2012, 11:18 am

    My favorite toy was electric football as well as my GI Joe and his Kung Fu Grip!!! that scruffy beard, he had no match!

  • Del Thomas December 28, 2012, 11:45 am

    My favorite childhood toy was an electronics kit that let you build various working circuits with these spring-type connectors. Very cool, played with it for years!

  • Ken Schoenberg December 28, 2012, 1:17 pm

    Here’s a copy of my review of this prize. Good luck, folks. If you win your kids (or you) are going to be happy.

    My favourite toy when I was young was those paper dolls that you punch out their clothes and fold them on to the doll.

    My daughter now has one with rare earth magnets! Total geek cred.

  • D SCHMIDT December 28, 2012, 1:34 pm

    My favorite was a Sindy doll!

  • Henry Gernhardt December 28, 2012, 2:10 pm

    My favorite toy was the Gilbert Chemistry set … which today is virtually outlawed by all the silly safety regulations that say I and millions of others should be dead. And the Alpha One rocket, also no longer available!

  • deslock December 28, 2012, 2:10 pm

    LEGO classic space sets (especially #497 Galaxy Explorer).



  • Ray December 28, 2012, 2:29 pm

    I wanted all the Shogun Warriors but I never collected all of them:

    My little sister broke most of the ones I did get too. It’s been 30 years so I’ve forgiven her.

  • nannypanpan December 28, 2012, 3:18 pm

    my kick n go scooter

  • Frank December 28, 2012, 4:40 pm

    My favorite toy was by far my battle damage He-Man action figure, you press his chest and a rotating panel shows battle scars on his armor. I’d use our family cat to inflict damage on He-Man, no power of Gray Skull could help him. Love your site btw 🙂

  • Bruce Brown December 28, 2012, 4:59 pm

    I was an erector set guy. Wish I still had them to play with on snow days!

  • livivua c December 28, 2012, 6:55 pm

    I loved cabbage patch, teenage mutant ninja turtles, and Walkie talkies

  • Andrew Baker December 28, 2012, 8:47 pm

    Legos all the way

  • Richard Kingston December 28, 2012, 9:45 pm

    My favorite toy as a child was a Meccano set made from steel. This was more intricate than the plastic version – but really cool.

  • Donald December 29, 2012, 1:38 am

    My best toy was a Gilbert (I think) chemistry set from back in the day when you could do interesting experiments w the sets (unlike today where the Consumer Safety Agency has removed all the interesting stuff). The chemistry set got me into gunpowder and home made rockets and the less said about that the better.

  • David December 29, 2012, 4:13 am

    My favourite was a small crystal radio that I used to listen to radio serials under the bed clothes at night. I still (50+ years later) still sleep with an earphone in one ear.

  • steve cross December 29, 2012, 8:41 am

    My favourite toy was the transformer megatron.My three year old boy’s favourite toys are Chuggington die cast trains…he would love this prize!

  • holly December 29, 2012, 9:36 am

    My favorite toy as a child was actually any and all barbies. :-“)

  • Ado M December 29, 2012, 11:37 am

    We used to go back to Japan every other year, and I remember getting Tomica die-cast metal cars. Along with Corgi, the die-cast metal cars were the best — much larger than Hot Wheels, and plenty of choices (especially the customized vehicles from 70’s tv shows like UFO, Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlet, etc.). Still miss them.

  • Ellen B December 29, 2012, 12:29 pm

    My favorite was my bicycle – I rode that everywhere – also loved barbie dolls

  • amy williams December 29, 2012, 3:35 pm

    I loved one doll that I still have and my skip it.

  • Betty Widerski December 29, 2012, 4:14 pm

    Since I was sick a lot as a chile, my favorite toy was a bag full of plastic “army men” and “Space men” – I’d set them up on a TV tray next to my bed and direct them through adventures (occasionally ‘accidentally’ spilling my water glass to cause a flood!)

  • TonyW December 29, 2012, 5:00 pm

    Mr Merlin

    I would play with this all day and run out the batteries at least every other week. It solidified my enjoyment of gadgets at a young age.

  • Lauryn December 29, 2012, 5:22 pm

    My favorite toy as a child was a microphone/speaker set. I also really loved Barbie dolls 🙂 My son would love this Chuggington set. Great giveaway!

  • Mark Rosengarten December 29, 2012, 5:36 pm

    My favorite toy was that thin film of liquid crystal called the “space fidget”. I found a brand new one on eBay about six months ago and it has a place of honor on my shelf of childhood stuff.

  • jimlat December 29, 2012, 11:37 pm

    My GI Joe sets…especially the space capsule or the Adventure Team Command Center with the Kung Fu Grip GI Joes!!!

  • Pranawa December 30, 2012, 6:03 am

    Model helicopter

  • Julie December 30, 2012, 9:35 am

    The winner of this contest is #17 Henry Gernhardt.

    Congrats Henry and thanks to everyone that entered. It was fun reading about your favorite childhood toys. FYI, my favorite toys were building sets. We didn’t have money for LEGO, so I had my Dad’s own childhood Erector set and a funky plastic building set from Tupperware.

  • TonyW December 31, 2012, 10:46 am

    Hah I remember those space fidgets. We broke one and got the oil all over the place and my mom never let us have one again.
