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?

Hooked on subbuteo ever since I got the 1970 World Cup Edition for Christmas. Presumably today's version has VAR to check whether or not players have been flicked or steered !


Or who sat on them.

I had this and the Football one with the two players with the flicky legs from them.

I used to write out the Lancashire team and my mate Dave did the Essex one (Gooch era) and we used to have B&H final games, writing out the score for each batsman. I cannot remember if we did the bowling, I think we did.

Great game

My dad mounted my subbuteo pitch on MDF, I had the green picket surround fence and a grandstand, I spent all my pocket money buying extra spectators to glue in, I had the wooden scoreboard with the round dials to change the score and all the teams were on sheets of card which you had to cut out yourself.

Nice. I had the floodlights which were a bit like those at Lower Mead insofar as things seemed to get darker when you turned them on !

Striker and big league, me and my mates had a league in Perivale/North Greenford where you could incorporate players from both games




Also loved Crossfire and Hot Wheels there was the loop the loop racing and also a tower parking garage that the cars went into and went up the lift to the top which gave the height to run into the loop.

Well I had a spud gun that was slightly dangerous but I then got me a cap gun and a cowboy hat (ta older brother).
Memory not up to scratch anymore but the cap gun used to have a roll of caps which meant you could fire off a quick salvo in succession thus killing loads of your mates, that also made me more cooler that Val Kilmer (Doc Holliday in Tombstone).
As a consequence I was always in demand when a Sheriff needed some help with unruly and very naughty cowboys, I'd ride into town a bit like The Outlaw Josey Wales,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

And when you got bored there was always using a sharp stone to hit the caps with, you could fold them over and do several at once. Later on they brought out a plastic ring which fitted inside a revolver. Can’t see kids today being allowed to play “bank robbers”

UFO SHADO Interceptor Dinky Toy. A button on the side would fire the torpedo which I lost after trying to take down a pigeon from a 15th floor balcony. Would work equally well loaded with a Caran D’ache coloured pencil or felt tip. Hours of fun in the art class.

Click the button to the side and it would drop its bomb on your tiny plastic soldiers.

This thread has really gone into my hidden memory! Had a bow and arrow, the arrows were made of thin wood with a rubber stopper on the end that would stick to a target, didn’t take a rocket scientist to learn that you could remove the rubber end and whittle the end into a nice point, perfect for firing at your best mates leg!! H and S would have had a field day back then.

I don't remember any toys much growing up except this one. As I approached my teenage years I bought my own Airfix planes and corgi cars from money earned doing chores but I suppose that because there were a lot of us, toys were few and far between.

Like you, uphill both ways. Don’t recall much, but do have a strong recollection of a Christmas morning in the mid 1960’s where a metal Canadian Pacific train with a loud horn, was running around the bedroom floor then turning itself when it bumped into stuff. We loved it😀
