    I was freaking obsessed with these. (The hair smelled! Like fruit!)

    Fucking godforsaken Mouse Trap. Did anyone ever actually play the game? Or keep all the pieces past one assembly?

    We could rarely get it to work properly but it didn't stop us from trying.

    Oh yea, we played this on the playground like EVERY day for a couple of years. Even when it was snowing.

    There has never ever ever been a complete set of Mouse Trap. Just as no two families play Monopoly by the same rules.

    Haha, we loved making up ridiculous house rules for Monopoly, solely to aggravate visiting players. We wouldn't warn them in advance of the rules.

    One of my friends retaliated by teaching me a little card game called Mao.

    I may have ruined this by googling.

    Have you ever played Mornington Crescent?

    I haven't, and after reading the Wiki entry twice, I still don't understand at all.

    And yea, Mao is partially ruined by googling.

    Me too! Do you remember the flip and fold one (where you used fabric)?




    I think my favorite childhood activity was actually making my own 'clothes' for my paper dolls.

    I didn't ever see that one. I wish I had. I also really liked to play with my spirograph, but it always pissed me off that the colored pens had very little ink and were completely shitty pens. I would like to have one now with some cool gel pens, for all my doodling pleasure.

    Spirograph was awesome! I could pretend that I was an artist when really I am quite the opposite.

    Yea, I hated my Spirograph because the pens constantly crapped out.

    The same aunt who gave me that also gave me this:



    I must have made my mom a few hundred ugly potholders.

    I bet everybody did but did u guys have the game where your uncle's friend touches your butthole and then you get a toy?

    I always won at that game somehow.
    "All of you coachella 'regulars' have nasty boy pussies and itchy dick4's on your asses.
    Why don't you all make like a tree and get chopped down and die. You all have been dreadfully mean to me.
    I Hate you. All of you. None of you will ever get to see a womans chest meat or finger blast hott cougies like me.
    Fuck you all. Consider this my resignation.
    Fair the well, you elitest scumbags."

    Haha, I remember when Pogs were all the craze in 5th grade. Our school (as I'm sure many did) banned them eventually.

    The original plastigoop gave off really noxious fumes and was undoubtedly toxic. And the machine itself got really hot. The version that made creepy crawlies was the best.

    Hah. We had ours second-hand, given to us by a neighborhood mom who probably didn't want her child burned or poisoned, but couldn't care less if we were. (Give the uber dangerous toy away to the poor immigrant family down the street, Marge!) We loved it.


    I wanted one of these REAL bad (also a burn hazard), but no one ever gave these away :

    I used to hang out in the backyard wearing one of those truncated cone shaped tomato cages inverted over my head and torso with my arms sticking out the sides and the ground prongs pointing up to the sky because I thought it was a clever cow costume, I am also remembering. I'm starting to think I may have been neglected.

    I spent an absurd amount of my childhood crying and being upset that my parents didn't get me what all the other kids had. My pencil box was a used First Aid Kit. I was pissed.

    ROCK-LORDS from Go-Bots. I don't know why robots that turned into fucking ROCKS, but I think I liked these more than the Transfomers. Kids are stupid.

    reminds me of the scene in "big" where tom hanks' character is asking what's so fun about a robot that turns into a building.
