    Yeah, my favorite toy is Legos. I like the versatility and the fact that it promotes thoughtfulness over video games which are mostly pointless.

    My PowerBook!! (unless you consider my PowerBook a toy ;))

    Legos would definitely sit pretty high on my list of "awesomest toys ever," though.

    Thats a tough question.

    Um... cat.. yes I would say my cat.

    Its well built, virtually indestructible and catches mice. Pretty much pays for it self.

    Take that Aibo!

    Legos are pretty awesome. I hope my kid(s) like them. I have a ton of them, and I think it would be tons of fun once they're old enough (-2 months is way way too young).

    But I'd say my current favorite toys are my Canon XTi (and gear), followed by my eMac.

    I had a lot of transformers when I was younger. They were pretty cool, but that's another great thing about legos. I built a lot of transformers out of legos before I ever got any (and still long after I got a few). I built a battlestar, vipers, base ships, and raiders when I was into battlestar galactica, ocean liners when I was into them, and so on.

    Unfortunately, I think most people look at legos differently now. They build what the sets are designed to make and leave it at that. Sure my battlestar was multi-colorded and lumpy, but I knew what it was and had fun playing with it.

    I'd say they are definitely both, or either.

    Legos would be at the top of my list...although I it really saddened me when they kept having more and more specialized parts.

    G.I. Joe would probably be next...nothing like having Stormshadow and Snake Eyes meet in the jungle and have one of them yell "I wish I knew how to quit you."

    They actually still have them (or maybe they just started making them again recently)...I just bought some for a co-worker's little daughter in January.

    When I was a kid it was a huge mound of dirt and my toy cars & trucks. Now it's my books, grandbaby and dogs and cats. The wife is in there somewhere, too.:D

    THESE THINGS!!!!
    I play with the display one at work all the time. I try to make it look like I'm just cleaning up the tables, but I love making a little house with them. They're AWESOME!!!
    actually, on the site, under "franchise information", those are the people who own the franchise at which I work.
    SO MUCH GIFT WRAP
    but then I get to make a little magnet house again. :D

    I think he means the toy lightsabers as opposed to something like these.

    Legos is pretty high on my list but I would probably say Yugioh and Pokemon cards. Loco Roco on the PSP is pretty fun though.

    Must... resist urge... to say... your mom...
    I think Legos are pretty kick-ass, too. I would have to break from the pack and say that waterguns are even COOLER, though.

    Pun intended!

    Ditto on that. Also, I believe this thread deserves a mention in the funny names thread or whatever.

    Gah!

    Why do everyone call them Legos?

    Thats not what they are!

    Lego Blocks is the right word.

    NOt trying to be stingy but that is one of my pet peves.:eek:

    Also, K-nex were always cool. Also I love yo-yos!

    I used to play Yu-Gi-Oh cards. My favorite toy was Obelisk the Tormentor action figure.
