Yes, I played Chinese checkers quite often with my Japanese girlfriend and we did indeed use marbles, nice white and black marbles. And now that I recall her, she was an only child and had all the best, most expensive toys...like the easy bake oven, where we would bake chocolate cakes and pig out.

We were only allowed to pick one Christmas/Birthday gift only (but got lots of cheaper toys/gifts from friends if we had a birthday party), but there were four of us kids so we would share. Also we all had lots of friends so there would be sharing all round. cheers.gif

lmao.gif We were out in the woods and played with sticks and stones and in the winter blocks of snow could be made into anything. I loved my brother's old model train and the preciously few lego bricks we had.

My favorite toy was a sewing machine that actually worked. It still does. yay.gif

Then I won a microscope in a drawing contest and I still have that too. yay.gif

Hi! I was maybe 9 or 10, I don't remember exactly. No I never got the drawing back, it was a contest in the Swedish version of Donald Duck magazine and the theme was bacteria. 13.gif It was probably sent to Sweden and ended up in some secret Disney archive 13.gif

I clearly remember how many of my toys were bought for me and my brother by our nana and grandfather who use to work like double shifts six days a week welding for several decades and earned a lotta money and he saved most of it...
