↘Grownup's Only↙

I am amazed that the fun toys they have for kids of all ages (18 & under) these days. We have as much fun playing with them as we do shopping! Never did we have this type of selection as we do today for our kids. Thank technology for that! I would like to see what you would want if you were a kid now. If you are over 18, what toy would you want that is for kids?

We bought games for Mini's stocking stuffers and one is Rubiks  Revolution. What a blast. We cannot put it down. Try it here. And Light Bright is now 'flat screen.' Not the same as my childhood days!

If you were a kid today, what kid geared toy or item would you ask for or want this Christmas? And why?

Maybe I'm a total dork, but I'd take what was available to me as a kid over what out there today any day.

We rode our bicycles with the 10 gears they had and no helmets into the woods to the tree house we built with scrap materials - not one of the prefab cedar structures you see in every yard now.  We had a "zip" line out of it that we liberated stuff from our house to use so slide on it.  We had a tire swing and a decent, if limited set of walkie talkies, a couple of Daisy pumps to play tag with.  Yes I said tag.  If you got shot, you were it.  LOL.  Skateboards of the day worked just fine.  So did our skates.  Nothing beat laying on the shag carpet and watching the needle hit the turntable on a brand new album.  Album cover art you could actually see.  So the sound quality left something to be desired - but I can argue that too.  Ya, in college a lighter bike to lug on and off the subway or T and an ipod would have been good.  But the all the technology?  Not for me.

okay, that entire description i was able to see play out in my mind's eye. sounds like wonderful childhood memories. it sounds lovely! and now, i'm ditching the electronic wishes, but not giving up the 1964 easy bake! mine was turquoise blue.
