Originally posted by NoEarthlyReason Lots of wooden toys, some made by my father. Corgi die-cast cars. I remember a brilliant Fisher-Price cash register -- my sister's kids actually played with it the last few times they came over to England. An Aerobie and one of those three-pronged foam boomerangs. Tennis and badminton equipment. Lots of Commodore 64 and, later, Amiga 500 games and Mac software. And many, many books.
I thought toys arrived to England until the 90s and, before that, you
people played with knives and empty pint glasses. What a refreshing

What games or toys do you strongly remember at certain ages?
Early age stuff:
I had a massive gun called a Jonney 7 when I was about 7 and I loved some robots called Zeroids when I was about 10. I also remember a race track game called Minic (before ScaleXtric).
Anyone remember these?
My dear parents sacrificed to provide their four sons and one daughter gifts at Christmas and on our birthdays: Toy Soldiers; an Army Doctor Set; War II Model Planes; a Chain Driven Tricycle and story books with pictures are a few of the ones I remember from the age of three to five.
Note: Thanks for "a nice non-controversial topic.".
