I had a Robin Hood outfit, I still have it.
Teddy Bear as old as I am, lives in my wardrobe.
Among the things I still have from the Sixties are Scalextric, Microscope set, Telescope, Spirograph, Monopoly, Miniature Golf (for laying out on a lawn), Magic set.

Some of the things that mysteriously vanished from the loft, usually when I was away from home, Meccano, Lego, Train Set, Magic Robot, Boxing gloves and punch bag, Cap Guns, Crossbow, Chinese Metal Puzzles, Trik Trak, Barbie, Magnus Chord Organ.



ha ha now we know why volty keeps going into his wardrobe...its to give his old teddy a big cuddle

im also getting worried now knowing how he and mike had chemistry sets..between you you could have ruled the world....[Little LOL]

one of my favourite toys was those plastic rockets that you threw into the air and bang they went when they hit the ground..lifted a little metal plate wacked in a cap that came on a roll and off they went..spent hours playing with them...
