Childhood toys

My brother and his friend Michael were in town (they live in Breckenridge) and came over for dinner tonight. Andrew loves to play with his Uncle Erik, and they had a great time wrestling, playing with cars, reading books, etc. I pulled out a box of toys that I had when I was a kid - my mom gave them to us a few weeks ago - and we were taken back to our childhood for a few hours. Some of the toys in the box from my mom:
  • ping pong ball gun
  • pop gun
  • toy airplanes
  • fake poop (2 different types)
  • rubber snakes
  • a kazoo
  • gyroscope
  • rubic's cube
  • handheld ball-in-maze game
  • rubber bigfoot figure (Erik said it used to scare him)

You should read The Dangerous Book for Boys - you'd love it! It's all about those great childhood toys we used to make and play with in the before time, pre-technology!
