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?

I'll admit that this next one is, in reality, a bit rubbish, but I was over the moon when I first got it, so much so that I barely acknowledged the brand new bike which my elderly great uncle had bought at some considerable expense and then peddled across town to my birthday party. Shame on me.

This game was great when the you were next to the stairs and the ball bearing, or marble, I can't remember, came shooting down the chimney, down the stairs and took you out. It was the 70s, though, and that was about as sophisticated as toys got.

The Wembley Trophy Football. Cheap alternative to a leather ball but stung like fùcked when smashed against your thigh! Me and my brother used to play in the back garden with this ball, often kicked into a rose bush gaining a thorn and a puncture. No problem, just heat up a metal skewer on the hob and repair the offended hole over hole with molten plastic.

Damn. I wanted Astro Wars so badly. On the “bring your games in on the last day of school” this was the hit of 1983.

Banned from my school. I doubt any of us would have made it to 11 otherwise.

You're talking about Mark Adolph, Mick, son of Subbuteo creator Peter Adolph. He used to be on the old dotorg I think, and was then a prolific poster on WATRB, until he threw a hissy fit and announced that he was 'f*cking off to support Fulham....'

I got an empty Action Man box.
He was a deserter.


Action Man with realistic hair was a great leap forward.

Got TCR one xmas. Far better than Scalectrix, especially with a third car not controlled by anyone which you had to overtake. Great trip down memory lane here. Colditz, Mouse Trap were great favorites in our house. Mastermind was played a lot and also once Dad taught us how to play cribbage then ‘one for his knob’ was a regular shout. Never got those four fives in a hand though.
