A boomerang that didn't come back.
A stick

I tried hunting with real Aboriginal boomerangs when I was a kid. Never hit a thing! So I just used a .22 or .303 instead. Smile

However I have watched Aboriginals take down birds in flight with boomerangs. Really astounding.

And the slot cars were even more fun once electricity was invented. Yes

RE: What were your favorite toys as a kid?
I started out with a little green pedal car with "Lightning" written on the side. Later on I had a Secret Sam Spy Kit, a chemistry set, and a Digicomp-1 plastic-and-springs computer.

Dolls did not fare well in My presence. One wound up covered in packing stickers and another one got all its hair cut off. One aunt's gift of a scaled-down real English bone china tea set, though, had 1001 uses. I actually did try drinking tea out of it (although it would be years before I acquired a taste for the stuff) but also used it for chemistry experiments.

In the house it was legos, slot cars, matchbox cars.
Outside we had army men, frisbees and balls, and dirt clods. Slingshots.

Toy cars.

Gi-Joes.

Turtles.

And the c64, the Amiga and when I was allowed on the PC, that too. I still remember, when I as a young teen was watching my dad play Leisure Suit Larry. There was a prostitute in that game, and if you had sex with her without first getting a condom (and remembering to use it) you'd get sick and die shortly after. First bit of sexual education right there, computers can be used for porn, I mean use a condom.

RE: What were your favorite toys as a kid?
One of the great fun things we would do is go to the dump. Now, the dump around the Tahoe area at that time was pretty non-toxic. Not like the dumps today. We would go there and find all kind of things, then we'd haul it home and have a glorious time making stuff out of it. My brothers found an old beat up toy fire truck at the dump once. It was one of those old metal fire trucks that a kid sits in and peddles around. They banged it out and made the peddle's work again and voila, I had myself an actual toy. It was all rusted, but I prefered to call it "rust colored".

Um. We were poor.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Books and notebooks.

I also liked making structures with Tinker Toys, Lincoln Logs, and the Erector Set. And the microscope and slide set I saved up for and bought myself. And a battery controlled dog.
