So, what was it?

Mine was a set of doll houses made by Takara from the late 70s/early 80s. They were for a doll named Lisa that I don't even remember having, but the doll houses were awesome. Each room had a plastic floor/walls that folded up so you could carry them around or store them easily. There were little appliances that "worked" -- I don't remember how, but I drove my parents crazy with the doorbell and washing machine. There was a kitchen, living room, bedroom, laundry room, and some kind of little makeup room. Barbie was slightly too tall for all of it, but I'd spend hours playing, just to use those doll houses.

My favorite childhood toy memories center on two car related toys (I couldn't pick one).

Sizzlers - basically matchbox cars that you charged up with a giant "gas pump" filled with D-Cell batteries. Best birthday present I ever got.

U-Drive It - This one was basically a magnet underneath a map that pulled the car along. Turning the steering wheel moved the car closer or farther from the center. Such a simple concept but I remember playing with it for hours on end. Santa really came through on this one.

Masters of the Universe. And then the big rubber LJN wrestlers. And then the NES.

I also had this baseball pinball game that I didn't really understand as a little kid but I'd love to have one now.

As a little kid I had this stuffed monkey named Jocko. Mom had to fix him I am sure a million times. He went everywhere with me.

Older? I guess my baseball mitt. Tim Lobdell (who lived next door) and I played baseball about 97% of daylight hours even in winter if the snow wasn't too bad. I had a GI Joe at one point and recall blowing him up with an M-80. A mailbox too. I didn't really have many inside activities other than reading and watching the Cubs and Bozo growing up. Oh, and Garfield goose too, and maybe Family Classics in the winter on Sunday afternoon. Video games were after my time.

didn't have that one, but I had this - but I believe I was a young adult at the time. Like 20s.

Tie either 1996 where I graduated high school, my long national nightmare, and went to college for the first time actually making friends with people I liked minus the ocassional awkward making out with roommate's ex moment.
