    RC Cars

    My son is into remote controlled cars and he wants a new one for Christmas. Anybody know what the good brands are these days? When I was a kid, I had a Tyco Turbo Hopper and that thing was awesome. He's only 4 so we don't have to get too carried away.

    Cracker Jacks

    You know what sucks these days? Cracker Jacks. While the flavor is good the toys suck. They are just stickers now. Shoot when even I was little I remember little toys in the box. I know in the real early days they had some real great toys. Were suck a cheap culture anymore.

    Toys of Christmas past

    Thanks to @C Pav for the idea, lets post toys we got as kids for past Christmases. Only for Christmas. I'll start us off... Ewok village. The box it game in was huge. Had a real net. M.A.S.K. I launched that missile all Christmas morning long.

    Nerf toys

    Has anyone else seen all the new Nerf guns lately? Man I really want to pick up a few. Me and cpav saw some this morning at a store, they have ammo packs, vests, sniper guns, gatling guns, clips etc. The darts aren't even the same as when I grew up. They look really good now.
