What was your favourite childhood toy?
Conversation at work today got me reminiscing about a car transporter I had as a kid; bloody amazing it was. Dunno why but I still think car transporters are pretty cool.
Then at age of 13 I got my paper round and would walk every Saturday past HA Fox in Torquay, stopping to stare at the Bentleys, RRs and Ferraris, and the model F40 in the window. It was £1.80 per gazillion free papers delivered, and the first thing I saved up and bought was that model..
Bit battered now 😳

None of the Western world toys.
I think mine was just a simple hardwood stick (cut from tree) without the bark (I stripped it off) that I carried around with me all the time. Used it for everything from hitting giant lizard, dogs, fishing rod and arm extension. The stick is still in my parents’ house.Posted 4 years agoStonerSubscriber
Much as I wrack my brains I can’t remember much of my toys except for the ubiquitous Lego (which I did love, and I still do now, playing it with my boys).
Most of my memories are around playing outside or building stuff, but then I lived on a farm of sorts and with that kind of playground, you’d be nuts not to make the most of it.Posted 4 years agobearnecessitiesSubscriber
Lego was obviously a huge part of life; pneumatic stuff that lifted things pointlessly – I had a thing for building random 3 wheeled vehicles. Guess I just took lego for granted; doesn’t remind me of the excitement of that car transporter, or the F40.
(although getting a gameboy as above, was a pretty big deal!)Posted 4 years agoads678Subscriber
My action man truck was the fastest toy any kid round my way could ride down the hill, i had a 100% record on that. Tonka truck was shit slow though.
Action force brings back some good memories and lego goes without saying really, great stuff.
