Without a second thought it would be a Sega genesis with streets of rage 2. Put so many hours into this game.

Bow and arrow set before things like that for children were outlawed. Also got a Lego Airport set that was pretty impressive/expensive for the time. Had two planes, air control tower and I think a terminal.

I got a model 1 genesis, but forgot if it was christmas or my birthday. I know the model 2 Sega CD was christmas for me.

It would be either one of those, or one year the plethora of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys. I swear one year my family was playing tug of war and I was the battle ground. I got a bounty of the toys when they were coming out. All the turtles, the sewer playset, the turtle van, the turtle blimp, technodrome.

Then one day my mom goes and "donates" it all. Along with my fucking Sega Genesis, CD, NES, and N64.

The smallest little slot car set you ever saw, and I loved it!!!!!!!!!

I'm old, there was no video games, computers, or all the cool toys you guys had growing up.
It was sports equipment, match box cars, Lincoln logs & models for boys.

I would have to say a stuffed bear when I was 4 or 5 followed by a radio shack RC buggy at 12 or so.



I remember my biggest Christmas disappointment more. When I was 8 or 9 all I wanted wanted was a Tyco Bandit. My parents instead bought me the mini bandit. It was half the size, a lot slower and took 8 AA batteries instead of the 9.6V rechargeable. I'm sure they saw it was a lot cheap and figured it was the same thing just small. Man was a let down.

I lost my mind in a way that I'm even embarrassed to think about when my uncle got me an N64 for Christmas. It was not healthy.

A very close second was when this showed up under the tree. I would get heart palpitations looking at the catalog at this set.

Weird to think that Dukes of Hazzard big wheel I got for Christmas could never happen now-a-days.

Then again we had huge pointy weighted darts we used to throw around the yard at one point.

I remember getting the N64 and I was only stoked because it had Mario on it. This was also right after my mom traded/returned my Sega to buy the N64 so I was a bit pissed the Sega was gone and wasn't too enthused.

I got the "big" robot from that Lego set. Pretty sure it and it's instructions are still sitting in my parent's basement.

If I remember, I will take pics of it this weekend when I am at the other house. My Son plays with it when he's there with me.

I had virtually EVERY Star Wars toy of that vintage. There were a few action figures I was not able to get, but I had Millenium Falcon's, Tie Fighters (both regular and Vader's), X-Wings, SnowSpeeders, you name it. There may even be a twin pod cloud car there. I had a Tydirium Shuttle too, but my Son took that and has it in his room at our house in Elgin.
