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.

great shout. 

also, not sure if this counts but it brings back some nostalgia - Panini and Merlin football sticker books :x

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.

other toys/games include:

Frustration
Lego
K-Nex

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

Old post but any more childhood toys from the past? I remember getting a tin firetruck with a ladder and a fireman you would wind up, put him on the ladder and see him climb up, this was around 1955 ods, then chewing gum with cards either Flags of the World or English football teams.

Went through a period of collecting these little fellas, Battle Beasts. 

They had a little heat pad of their chest that had a wind, water or a log logo. 

Obviously whatever logo they had was the army they were from.

Meccano constructors were class... I had Meccano, Merkur and Fischertechnik sets among some other old Soviet ones, they were a joy and I definitely attribute my interest in technology and engineering to them xD Some of them were made of plastic, but some had proper metal pieces and tools, and you could build actual working models with them. Good fun.

These were my toys growing up... 

See the source image

But with them and one of these..... 

See the source image

You got this classic... B|

See the source image

Up the nearest hill, then down again as fast as it could go until you either hit something or crashed and tipped it... No brakes, you just used your trainers to slow down on corners.. or not.. :ph34r: You would come home with cuts, bumps and bruises all the time.. No sissy helmets or pads for these beasts, Some of the best rides were with a mate standing on the back after giving you a push start then hurtling down the hill and swearing you can make the corner at the bottom at full pelt... Them were the days.. Not stuck indoors day after day, we were always out doing something and if we weren't building carts we were building secret hideouts in the woods or having our HQ halfway up a tree... Everything was totally dodgy and unsafe as fuck xD

I expected hand axes made of flint stone.

Fucking loved them xD

Find some old pram wheels, a bit of wood and an old seat and away you would go, we had a hill in Tilbury Essex called Chadwell Hill, go up there and have races down and as you said no "No sissy helmets or pads for these beasts..." get knocked and go flying off, a bit like Charlton Heston in Ben Hur.  xD
