What Was Your Favorite Toy?

Here’s something fun. I have always loved toys. I’m 57-years-old, but I routinely stop in toy stores to stir up my nostalgia for the wonders of my childhood, and to remind me of fun times with my own children. In fact, I’ve often thought that I would enjoy opening a toy store in retirement, and I’m confident my first born, Sam, would gladly help me to run it.

Among my favorites was this, the Fort Apache Play Set by Marx Toys. I played with it for hours, just as my children did with Polly Pockets, Fisher Price Knights and so many others.
