Plastic Disasters!

Why was it so hard for us as children to deal with the loss of a good toy? I know I dealt with it a lot; of all the toys I had in my youth, none survived. Many, for one reason or another, ended up in the landfill. Others disappeared without a trace. Some were taken from me. These are my worst memories of losing, breaking or otherwise ruining toys. I'm not going to mention the occasional Ninja Turtle missing a hand or the countless Batman figures that lost their capes. These are much more traumatic and to some extent still cause me a swell of emotion.
