  1. Erector sets and tinkertoys? HO cars and trains? Swing sets? Footballs, baseballs and basketballs? Bicycles? Skateboards?

  2. Does anyone remember the little plastic dragon toys where u push their stomach and it pops a dice inside to answer a question? I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the toy and I can’t even find pictures of one. Please help!!

  3. My top faves are not on the list. Absolutely loved Major Morgan, Keeper Toy with key, and Perfection Board Game. My boys 13 and 10 think they looked like cool toys in 80s.Dawn.

  4. Don’t remember the real spelling. I think it was called “ally up”
    It was blue or gray a peg was in back
    of it you put a marble in front on the bottom and rock it back and forth to make the marble go up.

  5. I was born in 1956. and i had this one toy that i guess it was a clown that was made of these round wafer layers of round wafers that were strung or wired together by a hole in the middle . it was mostly baby blue, and the round wafer’s were the size of between a quarter and half dollar, i think there were little bells on the plastic doll like figure, it was maybe 7,8, or 9 inches tall, just a head, and body put together with plastic wafers with string.
