Toy memories

This guy put up an excellent page in loving tribute to the toys he had as a kid in the 60's. That's my general age-frame too, so this brought back plenty of good times. Check it out and discover why our toys were cooler than the ones you grew up with.

Thank you for that link! I loved many parts, of course, but about the toy guns: My mother absolutely refused to buy me a toy gun, so I simply made my own out of a stick, a spring clothes pin and a bag of rubber bands. Good times!

I remember owning 7 toy guns : a plastic .30 cal machine gun on a tripod, a pretty good 2/3 replica of a Lee-Enfield .303, a plastic Sten gun, a metal James Bond Berretta replica (probably illegal now), a double-barrel Pirates Pistol, a "007 Man with the Golden Gun" Luger (gold finish, with shoulder stock, silencer and telescopic sight), and finally a camera gun that appears on the web site.
I haven't thought of the last for nigh on 40 years.

Without a toy Gun, how can you play "Cops and Robbers", "Cowboys and Indians" etc?
