According to my search, it's been 3 years since this was done here, so I'm starting a new thread. I wanna know what your absolute favorite childhood toy is. I don't want a list of things, I want you to just pick ONE toy from your childhood, and lemme know why you loved it so much. Simple enough, right? I'll start... Far and away, the toy I loved the most when I was growing up were Legos. I could spend all day everyday building and tearing apart all kinds of creations. The creativity involved was something I adored. Legos were a part of every birthday and Christmas list for as long as I can remember. My favorite ones weren't the spaceship ones, or the pirates, or knights, or anything like that. I loved the regular ol' town ones. Ironically enough, I don't really care for Legos much anymore because I feel they have gotten away from the creativity that the toy used to bring. Now all the pieces are very specialized and unique, whereas when I was younger, you really had to mix and match certain pieces to get the desired effect. That search for the perfect piece has been replaced by all the special pieces. What about you?
