No one's mentioned Pogs yet. I have no idea what the object of the game was anymore, I just know that I had a fuck load of the things and kept them in these green tubes.

I had a BRIO wooden train set, and now that my young niece and nephew are of a particular age, it comes out of the attic every time they come round to visit. 

Hours of fun!

Were you supposed to throw down a ‘slammer’ (or ‘Keeni’ [sp?]) onto the pogs, and if you flipped any of them over, you got to keep those pogs?

My Primary school banned pogs, since it was seen as a form of gambling, especially after one kid complained that he lost all his pogs to another kid one lunch time xD

I never had one but a few of my mates did, I remember being round their house and nine times out of ten they'd be ''grinding'' down the staircase with a finger skateboard xD. My best friend from school had a trampoline too and I'd go round there more often than not just to have an excuse to go on that, for some reason it was really fun to just spend hours and hours bouncing up and down (no homo).

Probably the best toy from my childhood (if we're talking about when you were really little) was my toy car. I was mad on cars when I was a toddler and my Dad bought me a life-size one for me to hop into. It didn't come with the spacker-mong seeIn in the photo but I did spend a good number of hours with it. Other than that I can't really think of anything that I had, I was more into video games and playing football in the garden than toys really.

One day it stopped working and i tried to fix it with my cousin, i was like 5. Not only we did not fix it, we left it unusable as it was bound to happen. xD

Pogs were class! The object of the game? To win as much pogs as possible, of course! At the start, you build a stack up of pogs face-down and then everyone takes their turn throwing the slammer on top of the stack, and you get to keep all the pieces that land face up!

yes! one kid had the best 'arena' and he'd bring it sometimes to school and keep it in the teacher's locked cupboard so no-one else would nick it or break it xD

Haha yeah, they were awesome. Also had a collection of Pokemon cards with a couple mates in school, and used to play with Yugioh's cards too.

One of the things i liked the most was a sword and shield set from Saint Seiya that my dad gifted me.

I had Meccano, Merkur and Fischertechnik instead of K-Nex, and that was best toys I ever had! It actually used metal parts for the most part, and you could build actual working mechanical models! I wonder if they make construction toys like that today?

Also, Fleischmann train sets were amazing. I think I would play with it today if I had it still xD

Table football and arcade machines were great too.
