for the ones who don't know aisle 7 was were toy r us used to stock action figures.
any way when i was a kid my favorite toys were my star wars action figures and their vehicles .well i have an ex who has a 6 year old son and every year i get him som new stuff and so yesterday i went to check out new stuff released on force friday and i picked up kylo ren's tie fighter it looked really cool with built in lights and sound and other stuff ab. it seemed worth the 40 dollars till i read the box a little more closely. to activate lights and sound you needed a force manipulator thing a toy that you wear like a bracelet that lets you activate stuff on ship and is sold separately for 24.97 . so that means you have to spend 65 plus on a toy that should only be 40 because disney/ hasbro are extremely greedy. how many poor parents going to wake up on Christmas to hear cries from upset kids whose favorite new toy doesn't work only to realize they got to run out and drop25 more dollars to fix problem.. i ting this christmas i will introduce the boy to the world of super heroes.

Get him some matches to play with instead. Worked for me and I turned out normal.

LEGOs ...

He builds the kit. Then he cannibalizes it for parts to build new things. Then he cannibalizes the new things to build other things. Eventually, he has a catapult that shoots stuff across the room and gets mad and tears it apart because it't not accurate enough ... even though he just fired a marble across the room at high velocity.

Come on, be honest now.

There is no "kid" and the toy is for you.

Fire was the best toy!

We would soak tennis balls in hairspray, set them on fire and throw them out the window at each other.

Ooh, and lawn darts!

How about a good old fashioned wrist rocket?

I made napalm, filled jars with it, attached a blockbuster and blew everything I could find up.

You could move to a socialist country where everything is paid for by somebody else.

Matches and a bag 'o little green plastic army men. If you hold them high enough, they make the coolest zzzzzzip!!! sound as they melt. I've still got the burn scars.

You cant even make tennis ball cannons out of the tennis cans since they switched to plastic containers. We used to soak the tennis balls in a flammable liquid, then using a propane lighter, fill the bottom can then light it.

BOOM flaming projectile going about 50-100 feet in the air. Awesome at night!

So much fun!
Chlorine bombs too!

We had this monstrous 200 lb rottweiler, we would blow up his freakishly large turds in the back yard.
