Truth, I've got my Baron Karza (sp?) in my home office propped on a window ledge. I found him while visiting my folks back out east a couple of years ago. My sons, now 15 and 13, thought it was a pretty primitive toy. I'll have to snap a pic and share it here later.
This is the one I had;
This thread reminds me of the Seinfeld where Jerry would knock out his girlfriend, a woman whose father left her his toy collection as part of his estate, in order to play with her toys: She otherwise forbade him from even touching those classic toys. The absolute childlike, complete joy that Jerry and Costanza expressed when playing with those toys was just terrific. It'd be an absolute trip to enjoy these toys and games with Shag's finest and a keg.
^^^all while classic TV played on multiple screens.
Maybe throw in a few of those "dangerous stickers" too. (insert smiley face)
Not my generation, but loved never the less.

Agree with others... I couldn't get enough of Wacky Packs...
...and I would walk over to Sav-on Drugs to buy packs of baseball cards for 3 for 99 cents.
Then there was One on One...
Remember when smoking (and eating) candy cigarettes was cool?
Kids today don't have a clue how good it was.

How about the Matchbox car city that folded up in a case. Here is the one I had
I tried to blow this sucker up quite a few times with the old Blackcat firecrackers. Only to be denied by quality American manufacturing
Had matchbox cars until the awesome hot wheels came along...
