I had my Legos, my Transformers, and my Nintendo, though I also had My Little Pony horses to play with, and before you say anything its because I had three sisters and the only way I could play with them is if I played what they wanted to play. Sure, my parents were a little worried and got me things like GI Joe, but he just became Barbie's cousin Roxanne's date for the prom. I had a weird childhood. but yeah, my favorite toys as a child were the My Little Pony horses.

Oh, and we had a ridiculous amount of legos.

God I feel old. I didn't get a video game thing until I was in my teens (it was an Atari 2600-I played Pitfall while listening to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker--and got incredibly far).

Other than books, my toys were things we kids made ourselves, my teddy bear, and a 3-foot tall Raideen robot with missiles and power-punch arms.

This is a really bad 80's flashback with what you're all posting. **lol**

For me it was my Hot Wheels, LEGOS (seems like everyone had these!), Transformers, and Star Wars. I did have an Atari 5200 Super System. Was the only unit from Atari at the time that could actually play a near arcade quality version of Pac-Man. **l**

I was born in 1970, so most of my cherished childhood toys were from that earlier era. Lego, obviously and mostly. The little yellow minifigs were *just* starting to come into vogue and I had a red brick house, a gas station, and some space stuff. This was also LONG before they started having all those specialty parts and pieces. Even the 1x1 bricks were pretty rare back then. I had a metric crapload of legos.

Star Wars action figures were a big win. I got them shortly after the original movie came out and had all the major characters, most of the cantina critters, and most of the ships. Styrofoam packing shapes served as many alien landscapes, rebel and military bases, etc. I sold most of the ships to pay off debts in the early 90s, which was a shame because they'd be worth a lot more now. Sadly missing: nearly all the lightsabers and blasters and other accessories, which, being tiny, got gobbled up by carpets. My most prized action figure of that lot was the Jedi Luke, which featured a cloth cape and a lightsaber that was not built into his arm, and actually looked vaguely like the actor (unlike most of them, if I'm honest).

I also had the original Star Trek action figures (including two Scotty figures, because the first one had a bad leg and it fell off. From that point forward, Scotty had the worst luck with aliens and transporters...). And the Six Million Dollar Man, including Oscar Goldman and the exploding briefcase (which I think I may actually still have). They frequently went on adventures with my cousin's Barbies, even though they weren't the same scale. I had the Enterprise set, for which the transporter was basically a spinner with red and green buttons. And I had the communicator walky-talky set, and a phaser....all of which disappeared at some point. (I think one of my neighbors stole them, actually.)

The Sears version of the original Atari, for which we had something like 30 games.

Other frequent go-to toys: Erector Set (sheet metal and screws for kids! so many cuts and pinches...), Lincoln Logs, Weebles, Fisher Price Little People...

I almost always made gadgets, or told stories, with my toys.

Lincoln Logs! How could I forget Lincoln Logs!

Does anyone remember Weebles? And the ever-fun Slime that came in a plastic garbage can?

Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down!

My sister was really the Weeble kid -- she had this bizarre Tarzan's Tree House for weebles...

and in moments, I found it online! Here it is:

Oh god yes, Pieaholic. Pogs. There used to be quarrels among the kids on my street over who had the most pogs.

And if you had the amazing Pog Maker, you were an instant GOD.

Y'know I have a weird childhood....

I used to play with Hot Wheels/Matchbox cars, but they were my brother's toys (i played with them anyway). I had Barbie dolls and then My Little Pony ponies.

What I did with them is... I used to pretend Hot Wheels cars could talk.. so I began making up this little story (they were always love stories...)

It's always about the same thing.. Girl Car likes Boy Car... They have a baby (usually a smaller car) and then the Boy Car would have a Rival.

I swear they stole my idea when they made the movie, Cars! D:<

But with Barbie dolls and My Little Pony(s)... I pretended that Barbie owned the ponies and enslaved them. My dramas weren't always lovey dovey... I had this one Barbie imprison the other Barbie in a room, so Ken would belong to only the evil Barbie.

I was....a strange strange child (. - .)

Oh I also had Legos and Megablocks! You don't wanna know what I did with those >.>

Uh....That nickelodeon glob stuff

PLAY DOH!

Tea sets?

TAMAGOTCHI AND GIGAPETS <3

SNES and the Sega genesis...God's toys....lol

My favorite of all....toy weapons. XD pretending to be Arnold Swrfrg what's his face and tying a head band on and speaking with his accent of his going "LOOK OWT!" and diving into the creek and proceeding to scream because tadpoles were crawling on me. XD ah I miss my childhood

Luckily I still have most of the weapons and accesories to my Star Wars figures. When I lost a weapon or two in the early years Kenner had a replacement policy for the vehicles and it was the same with the figures. But what I wasn't expecting was the TWO BAGS FULL OF GUNS AND STUFF to keep my figures nearly fully stocked! Shoot, even these extra accesories are worth some money I found out. Yeesh!!

Ok, here's one from the early 80's, who remembers Starriors? **lol**

No one who's ever played with legos can say they didn't love them. I think they put something in the plastic to make them addictive. I still have a rather huge pile of legos and pull them out from time to time. But I digress... Star Wars figures! I even had the original pre-sale set that you had to send away for because Kenner didn't even start production yet. I also stole my best friend's Big Trak for a week. It was worth being grounded for a month. That thing was so cool!

I had all of the original Care Bears..they were my favorite (still are).

I also had a ton of Barbie stuff...the mansion, the pink Corvette, and another house. I gave it all to my little cousin years ago.

My frist console was an Atari 2600.

Ohh, and I had a ton of legos as well (still have them).

I also have a rekindled love for Lincoln Logs and TinkerToys thanks to my son.

I loved my Nintendo, any and all Legos whether they were the big ones or Lego sets, and my Lite Brite

I also collected any and everything, including pogs, Beanie Babies and Pokemon cards and anything Sailor Moon I can get my hands on (which is still the case haha)

My oldest and I would have to say favorite is my Hello Kitty stuffed animal. She's about a foot tall, had her signature red bow and is wearing yellow overalls with red buttons and a ducky on it. I just love the story behind her. When my mom was pregnant with me, she got her as a shower gift for me, back when Hello Kitty was relatively unknown. I grew up and loved Hello Kitty and then found her with my childhood things and realized I had owned a Hello Kitty since the day I was born! Now she sits on my dresser in my room and I'm going to keep her forever :D

The Transformers from back in the 80's were so much better than the Transformers that are out right now. My brother gave my son a bunch of his old Transformers and he loved them. He got some of the new ones for his birthday a few weeks ago and most of them have already started to break into pieces. :(

I think my favs would have to be K'nex, Erector sets, Legos and other building blocks, Hot wheels, G.I. Joe, N64, Gameboy, and most NERF stuff...

Growing up as one of three girls in my family I was given lots of Barbie stuff. They finally realized that I really wasn't into the whole doll thing, but still gave me the houses, cars, the motor home, and other random things that came with her so I'd have something that my sisters would want to play with.

I still have some of my fav toys at home, and sometimes like to mess around with them a little. Helps me hang on to those stress- free years. :)

I forgot to add my Big Wheel. How could I forget one of my most important means of transportation from the ages of three to seven?
