Q: Guys: What toys do you wish you had as a child?

I've noticed lots of our users are female (you know, because women are better deal hunters LOL) so we get lots of items posted we wish we'd had growing up: huge dream dollhouses, etc. I am still working on my holiday shopping (rez, I'm so jealous that you finished ages ago!) so I was wondering if there are gifts the guys here wish they would have had.

All right, guys, what were you're favorite gifts or gifts you wish you would have gotten for past holidays?

Atari 2600 was the king of all gifts. Then when i got a CD deck shortly after they came out.

And women dont know a thing about electronics which are most of the best deals so i cant agree with you on that claim.

I always wanted a play kitchen, which my kids have.

Acidbaby I don't know a thing about electronics, you are right about that... But I would have to say clothing and toy deals are the best. ;)

I'd hafta say all things firearms, remote control, tools, televisions and audio. When I was growing up, audio equipment wasn't what it is now. Component systems had a cassette deck, turntable, really crappy reciever and even worse speakers in a glass case. We didn't know any better...but I wanted one. They cost an arm and both legs, so I can understand why I didn't get one.

Electronics sell the best on black Friday. I should have stated that differently, MY favories are clothing and toy deals. :)

To answer the original question,
We look at our current electronic "toys" (iphones, ipads, laptops, xbox360, etc) and the learning toys our 2 yr old has and both wish these things had been around when we were children.
