As you know by now, I was a kid of the 80's. I loved the toys and games we had then, they were so much more fun than the mindless video games kids play today. It’s funny, when I was a kid adults would comment on how much better the toys they had were, and now I am saying it. Weird. Here is a look at some of the 80’s things I had as a kid, and as usual this list is in no particular order.
Honestly, I could do a whole article just on action figures. These were the things I loved more than anything. I loved making up stories and acting them out, so to speak. I had Masters of the Universe, Star Wars, G.I.Joe, Secret Wars (Marvel), Super Powers (DC), Transformers, MASK, and many others. Unfortunately, I no longer have any of these. The only memories I have are the mini comic books which came with many of the figures. Lots of great memories with these toys though, not to mention the awesome vehicles and play sets. The Hall of Justice was the best, and Snake Mountain was pretty fun too. It even had a microphone so you could change your voice! I know, lame. It gets worst, I had so many Star Wars figures that I had the Darth Vadar shaped case to store them all!
