Default Toys of Christmas past

Had a bit of a stroll down memory lane this morning talking with old high school friends. Then watched Toy Story 3 with the little man of the house this morning. It gave me a cool idea.

I find it pretty interesting to look at the the toys we played with as children and how they helped develop us into the people we are now as adults. Some of us never grew up, we are just kids in adult bodies.

Anyhoo, Here are a few of my toys from when I was a kid.

Evel Kneivel was the coolest when I was a kid. No wonder I ended up busting myself all to hell as an adult.


See the above. Lee Majors was pretty dang cool in the late 70's. Farah Fawcett as a wife….played the role of the 6 Million Dollar Man….way cool. Somehow, I ended up with plates and pins in 3 of my 4 limbs as a result of trying to be Evel Kneivel.

It sucked that I lived in the country. I never could get it going fast enough on dirt to broadside!

My big wheel was much more durable. My dad used to pull me around on it behind the truck with a rope as we went out to feed the cows.



I was 7 when I got this for Christmas. Not much time for toys after this.


Not much later and girls were added to the mix.

And that was all she wrote for Nomad's childhood!

so there ya go….lets see some of your old toys from Christmas past.

Tonka trucks were the ****. I created some epic construction projects in my back yard. Kinda hard to go back to that when I got to run an excavator earlier this fall for a side project. I guess it depends on what you're doing, but it'd be hard to get tired of that job. I agree, kids in adult bodies for sure.

Anyone remember Centurians? I used to be addicted to watching this show and playing with the action figures. Snap on all the same equipment they would wear in the show I was watching.

Ah, to be young again... ='(

I need one of those "Bashasaurus" devices on the front of my rig….in case Jammer ever gets in front of me…...

Nah….that'll never happen!

I remember them. I watched that on USA's Cartoon Express. And I had all the toys.

If you remember Centurions, you must remember these:

I don't even need to play the video and it's in my head.


Kids nowadays don't know what they're missing. Saturday morning cartoons were laden with toy commericals.

I used to have the Weeble Wobble boat in this commercial, it was awesome.

I loved these things, my cousin and I could occupy ourselves for hours on gramma's kitchen floor just smashing these cars.

I had about every battlestar toy there was, man I knew where they were at now!

No! Not the Sea Wee's in the thumbnail! It's the Sit N Spin at the 6:00 mark, and pretty much most of the Star Wars toys in the last part of the video from 7:30 on.


I still have this guy in my closet, he's a bit dried out and doesn't suck as much as he used to,
