lincoln logs with fifty thousand single matches piled inside......barbies stolen fron my younger sister....packed with match HEADS!!! they exploded pretty cool. Um. Pre-15......I lived in the middle of nowhere...I'm going to say the last three of five were an axe, a splitting mall, and a machete. When I was thirteen I cut down a pine tree 14" thick (about 36cms for you metric guys....I'm from Canada and I use feet and inches lmao) with a BRUTALLY sharp double-headed axe.
I poop, therefore I am.

Hell yes. Legos all the way. I still have them all in my closet, but have no space or time to play ;_;

Also, I loved playing with stuffed animals. Everyone thought I was weird (well, I just might be), but whatever. I still like stuffed animals (which probably makes me more weird..).

And I used to play my old Super Nintendo a lot. I loved that thing so much.

1. Lego sets which I earned the money for by using #5 on this list and had used to build all sorts of trucks, mechs, tanks, and aircraft.

2. Little(3-6 inch) plastic dinosaurs and aliens and such, with action figures and their vehicles, including pickups, flatbed tractor trailers, Tonka dozers and dump trucks, a cement mixer, a Napa tow truck, and a bunch of farm equipment.

3. Rocks, dirt, and sticks which I used #2 with to build towns and villages.

4. A Case 1490 turbocharged diesel farm tractor, weighing in at 6,500lbs, that I started using on the farm when I was 6-7ish years old, and all the farm implements we used with it. Our farm, which I used them on, provided perhaps the most joy, with its creeks and ponds and swamps and forests.

5. My two sickles, a scythe, a post maul, a fiberglass handles sledge/axe, and a hay blade -- my work toys.

Honorable Mention:

AT&T 6300 PC running MS-DOS 1.2 on which I learned to program in GW Basic, and played Might and Magic, assorted old SSI games, and a very promising game that is not nearly as popular as it should be: Elite.

Toy guns.

Real guns(would have made the top five, but I only got to shoot once in a while when Dave had his guns out to sight them in).

Dave's compound bow, which I would always try to pull back when I was real little.

Hay bales.

Star Trek novels, James Webb's Fields of Fire, Frank Herbert's Dune, and other books(Also would have made top five, but I really only started reading big books when I was 10/11ish, so I didn't spend as much total time enjoying them).

Gasoline.

Industrial Solvents.

Concentrated herbicides and pesticides.

Fire.

Fire.

Bigger fire.

Much bigger fire.

Enormous fire consuming spray paint cans.

Oh my gosh! I did that all the time! ... then set them on fire or blew them up with firecrackers and gas!

I loved rough-housing with my little brother, playing with my Hotwheels cars in the dirt and making little roads and houses, collecting loads of fireworks (smoke bombs/grenades were my personal favorite), cap guns, army men, wooden blocks (to make forts for the little armies), and my trusty RC car. My dad always used to let me build a coffee-can fire pit when he BBQed. Ohhh the stuff I burnt. Lol!

I also couldn't keep my hands of electronics, electric motors, solder, and hot-glue. Made tons of boats, airplanes, and cars with them. I had a very bad habit of taking things apart and not being able to put them back together again properly. That didn't stop me though! Haha!

I suppose it isn't really a physical toy, but I LOVED playing Jazz Jackrabbit way back when. Then they came out with Jazz Jackrabbit 2! Way too much fun! That game has to be one of the (if not the) greatest platformers ever made. Oh so popular and oh so addicting. Total classic. Sadly, the 3rd one literally never saw completion or made it to the shelves. (The makers started the project but never finished it) Broke my heart :cry: . Just about the best old school game ever. This is around the age when I became the biggest computer geek in my family. Still am! Muahahaha! :twisted:
My thanks and best regards to all my former submitters.
