    Legos were by far my favourite. I also had Capsella, a giant toybox full of Lincoln Logs, and I'd fill entire rooms with Domino Rally setups.

    I almost forgot R/C cars. I had tons of those! All Radio Shack, of course... I had the yellow one with the big wheels, and the big blue pickup truck that was modeled after, I think, a toyota...

    Did you know if you put two sets of fins on them you can shoulder launch them from a piece of PVC pipe into the hayloft of the barn?

    Oh yeah, the rockets! I used to build tons of those - even an SR-71 model.. that was very cool - I adapted it to take D-size motors in the wing tubes instead of a single A/B/C in the tail.. I was young and didn't know much about how a thrust difference between the two motors would cause it to spin out of control

    Try adding mercury fulminate to that plastic cone and then launching it using a D engine.
