As much as I (and you, I suspect) spent my childhood with my nose stuck in a book, I was personally not immune to Mattel's siren song. My bedroom was a shrine to Barbie up until an embarrassingly late age, and man, did she have some fabulous adventures.
But I never got one of these, SANTA.
What was your favorite childhood toy? Is there anything you desperately wanted but never got?
As always, feel free to talk about anything else you'd like!
