    BraveStarr action figures, with the horse. After grade 3 was mostly NES, so yep those were it. OH! and the original Optimus Prime.

    Mine were:

    Kenner's Home Workshop - Worked with styrofoam or balsa wood, it had a jig saw, table saw, a drill, and a lathe.

    Chemistry sets like today Chemistry sets for children - MEL Chemistry

    What memories!
    Wow, I didn't think even earlier such toys were very popular. Yesterday I received my first set and offered Jane to work with it. My daughter is so energetic! But I didn't hear any noise from here for a couple of hours. They are really great!

    Mattel vertibird, I had the one with the rescue ship



    Wheelo, Electric Trains, Super Helmet 7, Strange Change monster maker oven

    I had a chemistry set that came with an alcohol burner.

    Does anybody remember the game Carrom? Kind of like a pool table with plastic rings instead of balls combined with a board game.

    I had one of those and it was definitely one of my favorites although I liked my Erector Set the best, I think. Mine was all metal, not the cheap plastic ones I've seen. I could build all kinds of stuff with that thing (the only limit was the amount of pieces and imagination), attach the included motor and even make it move. Another favorite was the Tinker Toy set when I was much younger, which probably led to the Erector Set.

    Almost forgot, slot cars and my Tyco train set were also favorites.

    Of course, I only played with those above when it was winter or raining because if it was nice out, I was outside all day, no matter what; riding my bike or playing in the sand pile with my Tonka Toys or shooting my BB gun.

    Re: What were your favorite toys?

    I liked them all:
    -I used to take mud from puddles and make little mud pies until I used the trunk of my mom's subaru wagon as a pretend oven...then they got me some tonka toys, the nice metal ones and a pile of sand to play with them in.
    -Hot wheels, although I think I had more fun with my Hess trucks
    -pretty much every board game
    -our tractor/backhoe. i must have only been about 8 but my dad would let me do the landscaping, snow plowing, tree stump removal stuff etc. To this day I'm surprised how someone so young can safely operate heavy equipment and remove tree stumps so methodically as I did. It was kind of an art, remove small layers of surface dirt until you find the side roots then tear them up, then via push/pull mechanics loosen the stump until you can get to the big root that tends to run straight down from the stump then wallah, stump removed
    -definitely my mountain bike. me and the neighbor kids would ride all the time
    -sleigh riding is probably my favorite - we had a sleigh that used a steering wheel and even a braking mechanism to it.
    -NES, sega/genesis, and eventually dos pc gaming
    -then when i got older I got into movies more. I'd look forward to getting the latest and greatest movies on vhs and then watch them over and over.
    And then when my dad got a copier for his small business I'd make my own money and would play all kinds of things with my sister using the fake money. We had incredible imaginations back then. Now we can't figure out what we want for dinner or what we are going to do most days lol.
