pretty much the same as mightymage but i had the speccy instaed of the commador 64
oh and also i used to love my original "real ghostbusters" toys
i had the headquarters (firehouse) and ecto 1 and everything!!
than in the late 80s i had turtles which wasn't as fun for me
Matchbox cars and Tonka trucks. REAL Tonka trucks, made of steel, not plastic, no electronics no battery anything. Tonkas that a kid could sit on and not break. With sharp edges and made with oil based paints.
That and I played in streams that haven't existed for decades (fucking developers).
And I climbed trees. Rode bikes. And being in my room meant I was either ill, or in deep shit. I certainly wasn't in front of a tv with a console (but then none of those things had been invented). My TV was black n white and cartoons were a few hours Saturday morning and then there was no reason to watch tv for a kid.
Micro Machines (The military variants)
I also had several chemistry sets, numerous electronic toys, and even a small tool kit for fixing my electronic toys once they broke down.
After I was 11, I broke away from playing with toys and concentrated on my gaming and electronics, but another hobby came into being shortly afterward, collecting female anime figures. I was already purchasing imported video games prior to this so it came easy.
