How many of these toys have you owned?

  1. Guidelines to keep it consistent: let's say we'll count any toy that we played with that was owned by ourselves or a sibling , but not count toys are siblings had but we didn't play with or any toys owned by our children. Okiedokie?

    I didn't have an Atari 2600, I had an Atari 5200! I think I was in my 30's when it came out; I put it on my Christmas list that year, and Santa gave it to me.

    My brother had Atari, but I have no idea which model. I never played with it, though. The only toys I didn't have were that one and some of the "boy" toys like GI Joe. I'm surprised Trouble isn't on there.

    Or Sorry, or Caroms! Anyhow, I counted 35 that I played with.

    Or Twister. I never had an Atari. But we used to get the little Nintendo's - Game Boys - and I can remember when 'Donkey Kong' was all the rage. The first computer I ever owned was a Commodore 64 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commodore_64 with a 'dataset' (like a cassette player) instead of a disk drive. Remember having to learn "Basic"? I thought I was soooo sophisticated...

    I actually used to be terrified ..... I mean throw-my-head-back-hollering-screaming-crying-big-crocodile-tears terrified of the Jack-in-the-Box!

    No Atari . . but everything else. And also what about that oven that baked those gummy spiders and worms? What was that called?

    I had an Atari 5200 also! And a calicovision! (I only had 16 on that list though....)

    I or my siblings have had most of these. Even if they didn't originate as mine, as the second youngest I wound up with all of them.

    One of my favorites was Kerplunk.

    Does anyone remember a barrel of monkeys?
