I always wanted a slot car track.
Also, a remote-control car.

Someone got me really crummy versions of each (a track that broke in a week or two; a "remote-control" car that was connected by a wire to the controller), but I don't think that should count...

I really really really wanted a Power Mac 8100/110.

I'm 27. I could not believe it when I saw a computer that exceeded 100 MHz.

funny story, my dad actually found a watch that looked very similar to that in the early 90's (he kept it after nobody came to claim it). it worked for a few years, and it was pretty fun.
