This was possibly my favourite as you could use any of your Matchbox cars by sticking an adapter to the underside.



Apparently this was Peter Kay's best ever Christmas present.

Did I ever mention that I was in Minder?

When I was a nipper i used to get these little wooden toys from the Art shop at the western end of King Street, Hammersmith. I don't know if anyone else remembers that shop but I used to love it. As a teen I'd buy Rotring pens there for drawing cartoons and so on.



I had some of the little houses, trees and maybe one or two other buildings - or at least my Nan had them and I got to play with them when in her flat; they made a town for the Brio train set.

I'd completely forgotten about them - feels weird to be reminded of them on here, like a bit of my life just came back. Just looking at the photo reminds me of the carpet-level POV you have as a three-year old.

Not seen this one mentioned yet. A classic.

Airfix kits probably already mentioned but I was mad about the old kits and find it a bit sad that modern kits don't have the written detailed instructions: 'locate and cement' etc. It was through these kits I learnt the terms; engine nacelle, cowling, aileron, fuselage and many others. They were displayed in dog fights in my bedroom suspended from nylon fishing line with red cellophane flames from cannons and guns.

All the old kits were also allowed to show the planes, ships etc on the packet with guns blazing, shells exploding etc in enemy action.

By the time I’d eaten half the glue I was too far off my nut to put the thing together.
