Toys, toys and lots of toys!
I want it! I want it! I want it! Yes, I totally want this new Star Trek bridge replica. And it only costs $25! It's a total bargain. I can't wait to buy my own Simon Pegg and my own John Cho and, well, what I do after that really isn't important.
Did you have a favorite genre toy when you were a kid? My pride and joy was my Millenium Falcon and the Tauntaun that I could cram Han Solo into as he ventured off to heroically let Luke die quietly on Hoth. (I had my own version of "Empire Strikes Back.") I also loved my Tie-Fighter, but, in all honesty, the family dog kept piddling on it, thereby drastically reducing its resale value...and fun value, actually. I was partial, too, to my Breyer plastic horses although I wonder now if I just liked their chemical smell because I seem to remember spending a lot more time sniffing them than racing them. Horse huffing could explain a lot about my current mental capacities, now that I think about it.
So what toys did you love?
