Somewhere I have a My Little Pony (the only one left of a massive collection that I wish I'd kept), some Dolly Pops, Lincoln Logs, Legos, and Tinker Toys. I think I still have a few little bits and pieces of things stored away. I can't think of what they are, though.

I also purchased an Atari 2600, which I used to have as a kid. I have 2 of them now, one of which is a special promo console that I've put away until I decide if I want to collect Atari stuff or until the value goes up and I sell it. Either that, or until my 2600 Jr. dies. I have about 50 games right now. They're still fun to play, for the most part. Some are rather hard, others are just plain silly and funny. ^.^ Of course, this would be a discussion for the video game forum.

I know I will leave some out since my parent saved EVERYTHING from my youth but I'll give it a whirl. Plushies are bolded. Action figures are underlined. I have:


wrinkles, ninja turtles, pillow people, gremlins, my pet monster, rainbow brite and sprites, hugga bunch

care bears, popples, pound puppies, pound purries, floppy dogs, , smurfs, wuzzles, get along gang, strawberry shortcake, muppets/muppet babies, glow worms, cabbage patch

my little pony, he-man/she-ra, smooshies, sweet secrets, barbie

lincoln logs and other tinker toys, hot wheels, wrestling figures


Do books count as toys? I don't know. If so I have berenstain bears plus most likely something of all the plushy/figures listed above.

Oooooh. O_O *drool*

I found a place in Lodi, CA on a recent trip that has a bunch of Intellivision and Colec cartridgess for sale for $1 each. If he's interested in them, I can get the phone number of the store and PM it to you.

Absolutly none. Sad My mum gave away all my toys when I turned 15. Which saddens me as I used to own lots of Visionaries action figures / vechiles, a Donatello turtle figure, the Thundercats Vechile and a 2 Transformers robots.

Aww.

I or my mom gave away almost all of my old toys. *sigh* I gave away my Lincoln Logs a couple of months ago to my friend's kids. They really like them, so I don't mind so much. What really bugged me about some of my toys is that they sometimes went to kids who destroyed them within a couple of months. All the My Little Ponies and the Paradise Estate and Dream Castle and Nursery and Waterfall and Pretty Parlor and Buggy and outfits and Megan... Gave them all to two of my little cousins. I'd taken very good care of it all. Within weeks, they'd ripped the heads off, cut the hair, used markers on the ponies, cracked/broke most of the buildings, lost stuff...ARGH. It broke my heart. *sniffle* Some of those ponies were the first ones released, too. Lemondrop, Peaches...gosh, I can remember what some of them look like, but I forgot their names. Guess that happens when you had over 30 of something. ^^;;

Anyway, I feel your pain.

I wish I would've been a pack rat and kept more of my toys than what I did. Recently I did a search on ebay trying to purchase some of my old favorites and when I saw the prices alot of this stuff was selling for I kicked myself in the butt. I was sitting on a goldmine. Why did I give this stuff away? dumb I guess, who woulda known. For example my little pony baby pegasus blossom is selling for $85.00 used. I had that toy, she was my favorite. Don't even ask me about Gi Joe and Transformers I wouldn't pay that much for them.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!

G.I. Joe!

And Transformers!

(Although the Transformers are newer ones I've bought in the last few years and the G.I. Joes include new figures and older ones I've picked up at flea markets, etc.)

I also have some ALF and Fraggle Rock figures.
And Back to the Future Burger King toys. (Technically those are from the early 1990s based on a 1990s cartoon, but the cartoon was based on a great trilogy of 1980s movies!)

Oh yeah, and a great B.A. Baracus action figure from The A-Team!
I found this one at a flea market. Awesome!

One I wish I still had from the 1980s was my totally awesome Knight Rider KITT car. I had the famous talking KITT car with the Michael Knight action figure!!! Very Happy I so wish I still had this. That was a great toy! I definitely remember getting that one Christmas long ago in the great late 1980s!

Oh yeah, and I have a 1993 toy that is based on a great 1980s show, one that is my favorite of all time as you can probably tell. Of course, that toy and show in question would be the MacGyver action figure from the MacGyver TV show!!!

(Of course, it's not so rare anymore. You can buy them off Ebay just about all the time.)

Though I don't still have them (they wouldn't fit now anyway), I do have pictures of me in my SilverHawks pajamas (my brother and I both had a pair) as well as me in my awesome ThunderCats tanktop shirt and shorts set. I remember it well. Red shorts with a great picture of Lion-O on the T-shirt. Oh yeah! Very Happy

I'm Lion-O!!!!!!

>.<

I don't even want to THINK about what my collection was worth. I started collecting them back when they were new and I took good care of them. I had the first Pretty Parlor, even, not to mention the first of several of the ponies and all the other toys. *sigh*

*giggles*

Gotta love MacGuyver, not to mention all the other stuff.

I was moving into my new apartment yesterday and found a little Pac-Man ghost toy from 1982 in a box! It's not much, but it's something. I don't have much left anymore. Oh, and my Dolly Pops. Anybody remember Dolly Pops? The little plastic dolls with the pop-on outfits?

I still have my Jewel Secrets, and just the other day my borther found Dark Tower while rummaging through our parent's storage unit. I so hope he doesn't sell it on eBay.

Well, currently in my possesion I have the Original Gameboy (maybe that was an early 90's toy), NES, my Hawiiaan Puffalump Elephant, My Sleepy Pillow Person and that's it here with me at college. At home I have alot of action figures of ghostbusters, tmnt and other random stuff. I just played my NES at work the other day too...well, work if you consider sitting around playing NES work... Maybe getting the NES to boot the first time is work.

No, you're right. The original Gameboy released in 1989!!! Very Happy

And the Nintendo Entertainment System was out in Japan in the early 1980s (where it was known as Famicom) but it was introduced to the American public by 1985!!! Cool

Ah, playing the NES at work. I couldn't help but think of MacGyver playing "Blades of Steel" at the Phoenix Foundation! Laughing (in episode "The Wall" - yeah, I'm a fan!)
