    Hard one to call for me but I'm going with Subbuteo. I loved it.

    We had a league going with 10 lads in it, home and away matches etc.

    I remember once ironing my goalkeeper to make him taller for a semi final cup game, he snapped off with the first shot he had to save and I had to continue the match with just a stick. Hurtful memory:confused:

    think for me (as a young kid in the 70s) could have been a football? I often played in the street with various mate(s)

    as I had a load of toys as a youngster but playing outside stood the test of time..

    my cousin had a grafter bike and I loved riding that, I later got a racer but that didn't seem to get as much time

    tho, I'm sure more toys etc will come to me...I often played cards with my nan...

  5. We played out unless it was raining. Indoors it was Action Man, Toy Soldiers, Lego or Toy Cars in pretty equal measure I would think.

    A Raleigh Burner then a Raleigh Banana in daytime, then when the sun went down and I had to go home, Lego in the evenings.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    Depends on what age, I had a Tomy car like this http://www.highleaguesthouse.co.uk/...iving-game-vintage-rare-toy-gwo-grqifiif.html that I played with up until about 6/7. I then discovered the back garden and my imagination, made a Delorian time machine out of a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles table and chairs, a steering wheel (no idea where from) and some old car tyres, went and kicked Biff Tannen’s ass quite regularly in that bad boy. Then when I was a bit older, my bike and a climbing rope and harness and of course my beloved dog. I lived (still do) by a disused sand quarry that was used to rebuild Birmingham and some surrounding areas following WW2 (Shire Oak nature reserve), it was an amazing place for cycling, amateur climbing, walking my dog and even camping out with my mates. I had an amazing childhood with little time spent in front of the TV or a games console. It’s pretty pants that I’m riddled with arthritis at 35 because I’ve always been super fit and active, in spite of having serious asthma. When not out enjoying the great outdoors, I’ve always loved my music and have had some form of music system right from the age of about 7. Oh and not forgetting torches, I’ve always had a thing about torches. I have a collection of Maglites, love them, no idea why.

    Favorite present ever at Christmas as a kid but not the most played with was a Daisy BB Winchester rifle.

    Shot my brother at point blank range with it on Christmas day and never got to see it again until about March.

    I bought a .22 air rifle from a school friend, had scopes and everything :D. Got me into a lot of bother that thing due to the inevitable destruction I caused with it, but had a lot of fun too. Bloody dangerous mind, in retrospect.
