Do you plan on sharing your childhood with your kids ? I do I buy old toys and shows I watched as a kid so they can see what I had as a kid

    I've still got my My Little Ponies and my Legos. I'll give those to my kids before the world of light speed electrical gadgets and virtual worlds poisions their minds to simplicity.

      I only plan on sharing the scheduled, manditory, ritualistic beatings.

      Oh, and my SNES.

        I say keep it balanced. Show them the old stuff, but also don't shield them from the new stuff.

        I don't have any of my childhood toys, I don't own too many cartoons from my childhood on DVD but a few like Animaniacs.

          I don't want kids, so I guess sharing my childhood with them would be a little though. ;)
          If anyone can help me get my hands on King Arthur and the Knights of Justice episodes (other than the first five which were released on DVD way back in 2004), please contact me (PM). I really want to see this show again.

            I do plan on adopting children someday. I'd probably share stuff from my past, but, like another poster said, I'm not going to shield them from modern-day stuff either, as it wouldn't be fair and would be extremely biased to do so.

              I probably would share my childhood with my kids, assuming I have kids.

                Don't get me wrong, I'm not gonna sheild them totally- I just want them to have a healthy appreciation for Mr. Rogers-esque imagination based play before we get into whatever crazy high tech stuff will be the focus of their childhood...which one day in the misty distant future they will come to Retro Junk and reminisce about. :D

                  I'm always saying things to my son like, "When I was a little girl I wasn't allowed to do that!"

                    I'm not having kids, and one of the reasons for that is because I don't want snot-encrusted fingers groping my precious video game consoles or drool all over my action figures; the offending fingers and jaws would get broken to prevent future offenses. My toys are for me and that's who they'll all ever be for.

                    I've taken damn good care of my stuff for years so it will last me a long time, and I wouldn't throw all that effort out the window by letting some brat play with any of it.

                      i'll def. share my childhood w/ my kids. Mine did, i even played with some of my mom's old toys. I'll try not to make them feel like they're generation is COMPLETELY terrible though. I just want them to appreciate the decades before them in the same way i do the 60s and 70s.

                          I try and share some stuff with my almost four year old. He loves the popples and will watch my little pony and care bears sometimes(To his fathers dismay, but I mean come on, he's only three and a half geez he is all boy. He won't go to sleep unless he is holding at least one matchbox)and I got him to watch The Christmas Toy and he likes scooby doo and tom and jerry. However there are alot of stuff I just can't seem to get him to sit down and watch. It's like the cartoons today are all flashy colors and three dimentional and some of the older stuff just doesn't hold their attention.

                            I gave my daughter all of my old hot wheels and I am looking to get her the hot wheels garage off ebay or a dirt mall someday. Most of the games I played as a kid she loves playing. She doesn't understand that the object of Operation is to not have the nose light up. But she enjoys it and that's all that matters. My wife bought her a metric ton of care bears and my little ponies and she even has a popple.

                              I share my childhood with my four year old son all the time. Youtube really helps because I can show him what nickelodeon looked like when I was kid. I also can old cartoons on there that we watch together. He is always asking about my childhood and I love sharing it with him.
