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?

Although not a toy, it was still a must to get over a few weeks from Shoot at the start of the football season.



Ch*ls** in Division 2. Crystal Palace and Millwall in Division 3. Reading, Brentford, and Watford in Division 4. QPR in the top tier. Things just made sense in 1975. What the fcuk happened to civilisation!?

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.

Guaranteed to be lost over next doors garden.


When I was 15 I was lucky enough to go to California on holiday. They had these frisbee rings (you see all the time now here but not back then the ones that are rings not just discs)
I bought one and my brother and I managed to lose it on the very first throw when we got back to England. It went a bit further than we expected and ended up on the roof of some flats, never to be seen again.

I had some Matt Mason toys, including this alien. A little air pump made a “laser” – well, some string, actually – come out of his gun. Cutting edge technology back then!

Come on you Prangers.

I went to that game, parking was a nightmare so we got in late but just in time to see Jerome Thomas stick the ball in top bins.

A bit of careful folding would allow 2 or 3 caps to go off at once for a bigger bang.

Yes, they were brilliant although I remember mine being heavy duty plastic and not solid metal.

Also, focusing the sun through a magnifying glass to make the caps go off was a good one.

Man, I loved that thing!

I used to have two - one with actual league placings, one with how they should have been placed if right was right.

In my alternative reality version, Rangers did surprisingly well. Weird.

When I was a teenager, one of my friends told me his little brother found their mum's v1br@tor in a drawer while she was out. He didn't know what it was and was running round the house with it switched on, pretending it was a machine gun

I've taken your guilt on my shoulders with a re-downvote. My first downvote, I had to check it was irreversible (it is).
