    I always loved guns and got many cowboy gun and holster set:D

    Always ran out of caps by dinner time on Christmas Day:(

    Just had to practice my draw then until the shops opened again:mad::D

    Must have been a psychological thing as I joined the DF first chance I got and have been using them for the last 37 Years:D

    My last one at ten years old where I pretended to still believe. My Mum brought me to a bicycle shop in town and was like, which one would you like Santa to bring you? I wasn't going to go well actually I know you're buying it but yeah I really loved that black bmx. With black leather gloves to go with it, I thought I was Evil Knievel :D

    The most memorable present I had was my Tamagotchi, absolutely loved that thing. I think kids now would be totally unimpressed and download an app instead haha.

    Brilliant.

    As soon as I read the name my brain reminded me of the audio... "schluurrrr-plup!"

    I begged my parents for months for this, even offered to combine my Christmas & birthday presents together. I failed in my quest:mad:

    I got YEARS of entertainment from my very first laptop computer. :D
    Brings back a lot of memories for me!

    Two other contenders would be my Nosy Bear (Dizzy Bear) and one of those red buckets of Lego I got when I was about 6. To say it kept me occupied for a good decade is only a slight exaggeration. :pac:

    My husband wanted this for years too but never got it. About 10 years ago they did a retro toy thing and I got him one for Christmas.

    An electric train set.

    I had many a battle with the carpet but absolutely loved it.

    It’s a tie between an Amiga 1200 and a snooker table. The year I got the Amiga was a surprise (even though I’d wanted a computer for a long time), but not as big as a surprise as the year I got a snooker table. I’d never thought about asking for one or showed any interest in one, and then there was one in the sitting room on Christmas morning....and it was a stroke of genius by my dad!

    As a "war-baby"; we did not really "do" toys. Everything in those early post-war ( UK) years was in short supply so we got new clothes sometimes and were happy with that!

    The difference between then and now ! I keep meaning to finish something I was writing about that; maybe will do that for my weblog this year. Hey that is a grand idea!

    2 things a sherman tank it ran on tracks and was battery powered the tip of the gun use to flash red.
    Second was a garage for my cars
    My brother made it for Santa as money was scarce it's still in my mother's house.
    Wish I'd had brought it to Poland when I moved as my brother is no longer with us sadly he took his life last year.
    Positive I did bring my tank it will be 40 years old in two Christmas times

    I had the same tank!

    Sorry to hear that about your brother, you mightn’t have the garage anymore but you’ll always have the memories, and isn’t that what Christmas is all about, making lovely memories.
