    Hold up hold up. Is this playground...



    The same playground as this one? This one below was a playground called Stars and Stripes park in Oklahoma City. It too was by a lake. I used to play on it as a kid.

    Actually, I was going to ask if that playground was in San Diego. (Or Ranch Bernardo, specifically.) Must have been a Rocket themed thing sold all over the place.

    I had an Erector set, my own pliers, and an oven that made little molded toy unicorns. You all can fuck right off.

    I also had a homemade teddy bear named Purplish-Blue and a giant stuffed ape named Marvin. 1/2.

    Now that I think of it, I also distinctly remember playing with a jar of pretty green baubles that turned out to be shattered auto glass. I had a broken windshield. Your move, rest of world.

    [Lame Angela's Ashes childhood story]

    When I was a young kid, my folks didn't have much money at all, so we never had sweets or fizzy drinks. So plastic bottles were such a novelty that every time we somehow ended up with one, we'd all write letters and embark on a Stand By Me-esque odyssey to the river to send off a message.

    We never did get a reply.

    I've got a He-Man pencil case in mint condition. I don't want to get rid of it but I'm sick of it sitting around.

    Yeah, it was easier to just do the robit's duty myself, but he sure did look cool.

    You could shoot the dog in Vs. Duck Hunt, which was only in arcades.

    I have no idea what any of you are talking about. I can't for the life of me remember what I played with when I was younger, but I can guarantee it was none of the things above.

    This is the kind of nonsense that passed for fun in the 70s. Kind of an even more primitive Pong.



    There was nothing "digital" about it. I took it apart many times. It was full of gears and levers, and it made a awful buzzing sound.

    I think I had these too, actually now that I think about it. So I wasn't totally deprived. My parents just seemed to be against anything modern or plastic.
