When we were selling our old house a couple years ago we found pogs everywhere, the most random places. It was sad

I had no care taking skills and my gigapets died on their own, it is amazing I can take care of a dog now.

Furbies were the creepy ones, I had one of those, it scared the crap out of my so I hid it in my closet. My sister's caught on fire. Just bad all around

Now I ask for things I need, this year everything I need is expensive so I only ask my parents. Otherwise they just tell family something for the house or derby. It works out.

I don't mind gift cards, only because I usually get them to places I like, if they were to random places then I would probably hate them because it would be a hassle.

My child hood was thrown out when my Dad's second ex wife moved into the house and decided all our stuff was better stored in a Dumpster.

I don't even have pics of me as a kid. My wife wants to know what I looked like as child. No clue. I didn't get self involved till my teens.

That's funny here is a picture of the huge dumpster that I user to clean out my basement. I have been tripping over this junk for years and my wife wouldn't let me throw anything out. One day she said in passing "Ithink we do need a dumpster". I had it there the very next day. My daughter came home from college and helped me and I overheard her talking to her friend
"Oh! we are just throwing out my childhood"

Nah, we were okay, we hated them. They were disturbing, plus we had fire extinguishers everywhere.

Oh matchbox, did you have the carwash? That was my favorite along with the figure 8 racetrack. I was an odd kid.

I just wish I had a chance to keep some things, pictures mainly, my family is small, and mainly deceased, so it would have been nice. I don't harbor any ill will, the house was crammed with stuff and falling to pieces, she tried to make it a home, it didn't work.

No the furbies.

Oh you are lucky, I had some and my neighbor (boy) had a lot so we combined them and would play for hours. My dad rigged a thing to launch then better than the regular launcher. It was great! My favorite was jumping barbies.

Yeah right! When I went to Korea last year, my buddies and I all bought the new-age ones that can compete with each other via wireless and such. Ahh, what Marines will do on a 14-hour plane ride... mine was always getting his butt beat

POGGGSSSSSS! I remember those. I remember saving up my allowance to buy my brother and I sweet matching 8-ball slammers. Back then, the most rebellious thing I'd do was "play for keeps"!

my brother (Younger) had Pogs i hated them dagum things. He must have had a million of them things. He had them in shoe boxes and boot boxes all over his room.

he had real toys. Like Motorcycles, ATV's, Guns, Compound bows.

I loved in the country mom had 5 acres and dad had 10 acres. So when I got bored I would try and build things fun things. Like the time I tried to make napalm and blackpowder. The sad thing was it came out rather well and I set the field on fire (OOPS) I did get it out before my parents got home though.

I wreaked my Honday TRX-250x and broke one front fender off. So I trimmed it and it looked stupid with only 1 fender in the front so I cut the other one off. You know surprisingly they do block a lot of mud and ROCKS. It did end up going a little faster though. Still had the slowest atv of the bunch though.

I then went through my Lawnmower phase where I tried to make the lawnmower look badass. I took and painted it white with pink flames I took the governor off of it. then I put a straight pipe on it. I had the coolest riding mower on the block. I even found smaller tires for up front so it looked like it had been lowered.
