    I seem to have amnesia on that one as well.

    Your video led me to this one.

    We ruined our Mousetrap by putting water in the tub like in the commercial. Warped the board.

    Didn't you hate it when your friends broke the thumbs off of your generation two GI Joe men?

    Didn't you hate it when you got your first Transformer & it didn't make all those cool clicking noises when you transformed it like on the commercial?

    The single AA battery 4x4 trucks (Stompers?) were freaking awesome. They would run underwater.

    I remember playing Dukes of Hazard on my big wheel. I used to lean over & ride a good ways on two wheels.

    Too bad today's kids don't get to roam like we did. All we had to watch out for were "red light people" or "stranger dangers."

    I believe there are still some "Milk tablets" with it, so I could make some of the fake milk...

    My brother and Chris had similar sets... now it's all video games. I loved setting up the race courses.

    Those tracks were a blast. My older brother had HO cars which were a way scaled down version from the later larger Tyco cars. I was handed down the HO set. Good times, but my friend had a Tyco set, and man those cars flew. So fast it was hard to time the curves to slow down enough to keep them on the track.

    Video games have nothing on these old race track sets.

    Maybe not quite the right thread for this, but, about a year ago I bought a cheap RC car from "Hobby King", $120 with a remote, readr to drive, just needed batteries, I bought 2 batteries for it, and I already had a "Hobby charger" that can charge any size/type of battery, so for $150 I was ready to rip around.

    The thing is so damn fun, I keep it in my van when I travel around, skateboard parks are super fun places to run it. A sit is cheap it is not as durable as the "real" ones, but they cost ~$500 for a similar car. When I break this one the parts are usually only a few bucks, but they ship from hong kong so I have to wait 10 days or so. I probably have another $30 in parts into it over the last year, but so far, totally worth it.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7bf50uzrTU

    The half sphere in the background is super fun to loop the car around in, I can actually get the car running endless loops in there, once you get the alignment right you just hold a touch of steering one way and you can keep the car doing vertical loops a foot or 2 from the edge of the half sphere,

    Want! Well the new light-weight carbon version that is. Never could to a wheelie. I even had a Chopper, a bike that fell over backwards all on its own, but still couldn't do one.

    ^ "Precision engineered" which is why kids back in the 60's didn't need protective gear. Just ride barefoot and let nature and Darwin take it's course. And probably one of the reasons my brother just got a hip replacement

    I remember those! They were a popular fad here, until they were banned because they could explode throwing bits of plastic at you.

    Also popular around a similar time was the Spacehopper.

    This was my first Cassette player... I remember buying the Beatles White Album on cassette and listening to it over and over again in the backseat of my Dad's car on a really long drive in about '68...

    I had a part time airport shuttle job a few years ago. One of the ladies that worked in the terminal office was a bit of a quirky old hippie type. She collected old Slinkys of all different colors and hung them on a wall in the lobby. Probably 30 different colored Slinkys hanging all stretches out, I laughed at the sight and old memories of playing with them as a kid. I think that was my first Slinky sighting since the 1970's.

    Anybody remember these? My family had one. Sharing between 4 other kids was tough though. I wish I knew what happened to it.

    We also had the original Atari Pong game. It played on the television screen with two dial controls. You could actually set the paddles so that it would just play itself and walk away.

    Totally, rubber gelatin mixture in molds, good times. In fact I remember trying to make fishing lures out of them. Didnít work because the the rubber was too weak to hold the hooks.

    Ahhh, but do you remember when they came out with the candy versions? Incredible Edibles, I think.

    I love seeing the word "googler" (noun) gaining traction. Will anyone confess to calling their phone a "twitterer" ?

    Oh, I've never tweeted or facebooked anything in my life..."twitterer" is kind of a derogatory name for the phone. It's the ugly side of tech that draws a person in to concentrate on a 4x4" screen while ignoring the entirety of their real life surroundings.
