    Favorite Toys as a Kid

    If your kids are like mine they are consumed with video/computer games. Not so in the 50's, 60's, and 70's. What toys do you remember fondly from your childhood?

    For me the Superfriends Mego action figures. I think I had every one. they would be worth a fortune now. I also had a collection of Western action figures (about 12" tall) with horses, the ranch/fort, cowboy, Indian, cowgirl, and lots of accessories...can't remember the name of it, but it was really cool.

    Guaranteed for a quick trip to the ER.
    For me, it was Lego's, Hot Wheel's, and any type of construction equipment I could get my hands on.

    Lego. The big sets where you had to use your imagination to build whatever you want.
