    I was an hyperactive kid so my memories are all Fuck*d mostly I do not remember any Christmas or birthday as a day although I do remember owning such toys.
    I had the Buckaroo and Jaws games both with the same principle of removing objects without making the Donkey Kick or Jaws close his mouth,also I did own the Bionic man figure with the magnifying lens in his eye and the Evel Knievel figure with bike and dragster,if I remember correctly the dragster had a compartment in the back with a parachute.
    Also ..
    Action man with the `Sea Wolf` Submarine
    Matchbox cars although I had a thing for buses and I had a few silver ones.
    Demon Driver (Digital Derby?)
    Missile Invader
    Galaxy Invader 1000
    Astro Wars
    Atari VCS

    I am going to be honest with you even though my parents had split up and my mother did the best she could if she had brought me a C64 for Christmas I don't think I would have been able to contain my utter disgust even as a small child,the thought makes me shudder.

    Huh?

    The C64 was incredible and I played it for years after my family got it. I don't understand how someone could be disgusted by gaining access to such a vast library of amazing software.
