    What was one of your favorite gifts you ever got? I think my favorite was when I got Pee-Wee's Playhouse when I was around 6 years old.

      lol, That's funny, They had gotten me the Pee-Wee doll that spoke a few phrases; pre-masturbation scandal.

      When I think back I can only narrow it down to a few, can't quit choose one. They are:

      Night Rider big wheel
      He Man Sword, that made cling-clang noises when you swung it.
      A whole bunch of Ninja Turtle action figures
      NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis.

      Those were my all time favorites.

        Back in the 80s and 90s it was actually FUN for a little kid to get a video game console. You could take it out the box and start playing within 5 minutes. Now you need to create a gaming profile, buy a memory card, connect to wifi, update your firmware...it's almost a chore!

            That's funny, I bought my kids a Wii U this year and it took a few hours to setup and update, it was like torture for them lol.

              1998 (4 years old): Huge plastic Playskool Play Desk with working lamp and holders for your pens,Bugs Life action figures, Lite Brite, Rock N'Roll Elmo Doll, Power Rangers action figures.(For some reason, this is my most well-know Christmas from my memory.)


              1999: (5 years old):Goofy Jalopy Wild Crazy Bumpy Truck Ride.
              I used to play the hell out of this toy, driving it all around the house
              annoying my parents by making sounds. All around good fun.


              2004: (10 years old) Nerf gun that shoots out Nerf balls, a Regenerator toy
              SUV that "regenerates" itself after you "crash" into it. Too bad I broke it too damn hard.
              Ed:An Apple A Day Keeps The Bus Driver Away!

                I forget the year, but it was during the Thunder Cats... so... late/mid 80s? In addition to TCats, I was also a Silver Hawks kid. So, of course my parents got me a lot of the toys, which were metallic, btw, great eye candy. I got Tallyhawk, the like... 2 foot wing span one, and Sky Shadow, which while not as large as Tally, was still pretty impressive when you were 7 years old. My grandparents got me a few BraveStarr toys as well, the kind that essentially played Laser Tag with another (which my cousin and I got as well, the next Christmas).

                  It has to be my first mini bike. It was a trade though.

                    I got a Laser Tag set too when I was a kid. The only problem was that I didn't know anyone else who had one, so it was essentially useless. After I got bored with just shooting the chest sensor down the hallway I stopped playing with it all together, it spent years at the bottom of my toy chest.
