If you're older, was not one of your favorite toys a string of caps?!?!
Whether busting them with a rock, or, a real "cap pistol", that was one of the greatest toys ever, correct?!?! Lol

What's some of your fave retro toys?

I also loved the "boxing puppets"..... (Don't recall the names of them )

What's some of your favorite oldie time toys?

The FREE Hot Wheel you could get with a fill up at, I believe, Marathon.

Johnny West (Or better yet: GI Joe with Kung Fu grip and life like hair).

Those cars that had one wheel in the middle that you threaded a black plastic tee down through, yanked it out, and watched it travel across the room fast enough to break a toe. (Nothing was more exciting than the toys that could potentially maim you)

Those were great, too!! Some of the most fun i've had on the kitchen floor...... Lol
I did hate getting my hair caught in 'em all the time, though.

Speaking of potential maiming games, what about jarts?! Loved those, too! We used to play 'drunk lawn jarts'........we'd throw them up in the air and the object of the game was to run out from under them and not get hit..... Such fun! Lol

Yeah, we would throw them up in the air and try to get the fins to graze our shoulders. Never on a windy day though. THAT would be to dangerous

and, I'm fairly sure the rest of the Wildcat Nation would appreciate not being lumped in with all my 'back in the day' shenanigans.
*altho, I'm sure I wasn't the worst...... Lol

Not as painful as rock and BB gun fights. Men were men then. No doubt about it, lol

Yeah, usually we had a diameter limit on the rocks that were agreed upon before. Violation of this rule resulted in fisticuffs.

After the fight, no one was sent to counceling or anger management class.

The GOOD OLD DAYS. We used to take old lawn tractors and put car tires on them. Would be sitting at a good angle. The big tires would allow the mower to go anywhere from 15 to 20 mph down the road. How they stayed together at that speed, I have no idea. Only one BB Gun fight. Hurt and decided no thank you.

We would agree to no more than 5 pumps on the BB guns so they wouldn't enter the skin. Head shots were not allowed of course, but when one did hit your head, you understandably had to stay down for a few minutes, lol

Buddy had a double barrel BB gun... you'd pop up after his first shot thinking you had him only to get plucked by the 2nd barrel... man, I loved those days...
