My daughter actually is outside all the time old school style.


My daughter played alot of sports, but the neighborhood we lived in didn't have many kids at all and we lived next to a busy street, so she wasn't outside playing as much. Now we live on a wooded culdesac in a neighborhood with a bazillion kids my sons age and he is outside from sun up till sun down in the woods and creek. I'm really glad for him but I feel like my daughter missed out on alot of outdoor fun with friends.

Totally off topic, but AccessDenied, that is one of the best avatars I have seen.

Any one remember the Monster Machine!?!



I used to think this was so cool - even after I finally got one and realised it wasn't remote controlled.

Hours of run wasting batteries getting people to lie down and have this thing go over them - took me about a month to break it!

Think it may of been the first thing I properly fixed by my self as well.

Oh yes the Fortune Tellers, another classic! Good one Snowflake! My little niece who's in 2nd grade had one yesterday at the family cookout...glad to see the old traditions, some of them at least, are still being passed along!

Great one Now_Then! I love the commercial, reminds me of the intro to Terminator 2 lol. That was back when you never knew if the toy you got would do the things it did in the commercials and sometimes you found a gem, other times just fool's gold

Rush!! You pack rat you!! Oh man those pictures bring back memories...what was the caveman from the comic strip B.C.?? I remember those glasses, too cool.

The Apollo glasses rocked, I kept mine until the paint or whatever on them was eaten away by the dishwasher! I proudly drank my Tang out of them!

Oh yeah, the footballs, the fortune tellers, and the monster machine. I always wanted a Monster Machine. How about Micro Machines?

Yeah. I've gotten it for my kids before and neither one liked it. What's up with that? Back in the day my girlish figure could handle it, but now I must resist to keep my girlish figure happy. HEHE

Personally my major weakness in munchable breakfast cereals seems to be honeycomb. No need for milk, just me, a box, and a good book (or a good website) Hehe.
