Top Ten Childhood Toys

I stumbled across a blog awhile ago that listed their top ten toys they had as a kid growing up.

Made me want to do my own version of that list… Because I love lists.

I received the DareDevil Sports Van for my 10th birthday along with a Red bike with a big old bannana seat on it. I always thought it was cruel to have a birthday in September, because most of the times you would get your presents and then have to go to bed shortly after and have to go to school the next morning. That was the case with this set… I remember my dad busting me trying to sneak the motorcycle into my pocket to take to class…

1. The Flashlight Not only was a flashlight an awesome toy for playing in the dark... but after Star Wars came out it instantly became a lightsaber just by swinging it back and forth making woooosh! noises.
