    For a college project, about desires about desires as a child.
    Please answer with just the 'things' and your age.

    I really need a big response!
    Cheers.

    I'm 41

    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'm 23.

    1. power wheels vehicles (those tiny car vehicles), for a few years starting when i was 7.

    2. a plane (a real one to fly in actual airports). never did get that pilot license.

    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.
