Log in to Reply I know no ones gonna like this comment but when I was in kindergarten, my parents got a call because I answered “what is your favorite toy?” With “M1 Garand!” I’m not a fanatic or anything, but I did begin learning about guns and gun safety with my pops when I was about 7 or 8. Edit: and for the record, we didn’t own an M1 Garand, but I always wanted to fire one. I finally got my wish at about 19 when a guy at the range was very generous and let me fire a mag from each rifle out of his WW1 & 2 Arsenal (Lee Enfield, Springfield ‘03, Kar 98, M1 Garand, and M1 Carbine).

I think my mom ended up thowing it out and framing my cousin for stealing it because i was an annoying little shit once i had it. You could play your recordings slow or fast and I’d record my mom yelling at me and then later play it back to her in 3 different speeds. Log in to Reply I mean I grew up with not many but I kind of wished I had gotten more Build-A-Bears. I loved those as a kid. Log in to Reply Scuba diving action man with real bubble feature It was basically an action man that had a button on his back, if you pressed it underwater, he released bubbles from his scuba gear as if he was actually breathing. I was never into action figures but man did I nag my mum for that toy Over And over And over Until one day I got it Excited that I get to test it out the next day on my trip to the seaside with my aunt. I used it like once, it slipped away from my hands and since it was now filled with water it sank never to be seen again 🙁 To this day I cannot even find anything about this action figure online, it was way back in Italy and IIRC the action man had a black and orange (or yellow) outfit with that button on his back. Log in to Reply The child size cars they had at toys r us. They were like $300 at the time and id always ask my mom for one only for her to say no. Now that I’m older I feel bad because she probably felt like shit that she couldn’t afford it and I would constantly ask Log in to Reply All of them. It used to really bother me when I would get one toy at Christmas, but there would he a leaflet inside showing the other 30 toys in the collection. I would spend more time daydreaming about owning the other 30 than enjoying the toy itself. It felt very frustrating being poor.
