Your best toy?
July 21, 2002 at 11:36 pm #9114
Ok let’s not beat around the bush here, we’re all posting to this messageboard because we like miniature radio controlled toy cars. For about 20 years (or however long I can remember) I’ve wanted a radio controlled car the size of a Matchbox car, and now I got one (or two…)
2nd on my list was a night scope. Look what I got today
Can’t wait till it gets dark. The other big toy I’ve always wanted is a geiger counter.
So what’s your favourite ‘grown-up’s’ toy? (cars don’t count as they’re useful things, unless you drag race or rally)

guyb, in a gadgets type catalogue I have here called Innovations they have a colour wrist digital camera, screen is b/w but it takes colour pictures. ?100 price tag. http://www.innovations.co.uk and tap in MD8591 into the search.
That Innovations site has a large amount of cool and expensive gadgets.

I like my SuperMaxx from Larami, it?s basically the same as a supersoaker, but instead of water, you shoot styrofoam-darts…
(It?s pretty useless, some friends of mine do also have one, so we can play or just to kill a fly !! )
Other favourite toys are my complete collection of M.A.S.K.- toys……
I love this sh*t

kitt – that one you pointed to is interesting, but i would still prefer the casio. it has higher resolution, and 1meg storage allowing for 100 pics!
i wanted to attach some images of my cars taken with the wrist camera, but could not see how to do it (feel stoopid now) as my images are not stored online.

Great thread …
I too always wanted an R/C matchbox car – that’s why I’m here now!
Thefavorite toys I’vealways wantedfrom my childhood but couldn’t afford until I was an adult:
A massive collection of Micronauts andMicroman. They were the 1970s toy-line that eventually evolved into Transformers.
My collection of Bandai Godzilla vinyls.
Finally -150+ gallons of LEGO. Always wanted to model the Great Wall of China in my living room … now … I can! My son (age 8) has no idea how lucky he is.

Razor scooter modified with 2 Fordair conditioner fan motors, a 12V 7Ah lead acid battery and a PWM 80Amp variable speed control. This thing does about 20mph on those tiny wheels (faster then any kid could everkick push one)and the variable speed allows the young ones to be able to ride as slow as they want. I’ll take a pic this weekend.
I too, dreamed of many toys as a kid and my parents always told me “you’d only play with it for a couple days and then never play with it again” Well, here I am Mom and Dad …I’ve gotuseless toys out the ying yang and Im happy as ever.
