    The Worst Toys From Your Childhood

    This one is easy for me. We must have gotten half a dozen of these and none lasted more than a week. The frame would buckle as soon as it was hit one time...

    Re: The Worst Toys From Your Childhood

    I can't say I personally had a "bad" toy in my childhood.

    Although I'm sure my dad's least favorite had to be LEGOS. He always said there were 3 levels of pain: Mind Numbing, followed by Excruciating, followed by stepping on a LEGO.

    LEGOs are my all time favorite toys, but I have a gnarly scar above my knee where I knelt down on the sharp side of a brick as a kid

    Same here, although K'NEX would give them a good run for their money.

    That or the crappy strings would snap and you'd have holes all over hell.

    I never understood the appeal of furbies. Or those things that CLONECONES posted that I can't remember the name of.

    Take this to the other thread you two! There is no room for love and happy feelings in here.

    Edit: His name was Stinkor. How original.

    There was one good use for the pitchback though. You could turn it on its side and it made a decent backstop for wiffle ball or rag ball games.

    I think they made some Trolls that had scents, too. Never understood the appeal.
