How about an erector set, the deluxe one. Also wanted Lincoln Logs. I remember on Christmas I wanted a new bike, a schwin stingray with banana seat, blue. I delivered a lot of newspapers on that bike. MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL

Dick - I know some current baby boomers who STILL have leagues using the vibrating football game. I used to love that thing.

Plastic models. Not the types you see on America's Next Top Model even though at times those would have been nice too. :joke:

Erector set huh! Aint goin there especially after Handieclause's 2 cents worth.

The biggies that I asked for and received: a Gilbert Chemistry Set ;D, Daisy Pump BB gun, Retina Reflex 35mm camera, telescope and Mitchell 300 fishing reel.

Asked for and didn't get a mini-bike build-it-yourself kit and an Orvis Battenkill bamboo fly rod. But the replacement gifts were an Oxford English Racer bike and Shakespeare Fiberglass 5 weight fly rod.

The Mitchell 300 and the the old fly rod still live on in my eldest son's hands.

All I wanted was a "Big Boy Doll", does anyone remember those? I got one for Christmas when I was about 9; took it to my best friend's house to show it off. Fell on the ice returning home and cracked its head open.

Oh, a portend of what was to come.

Donna, get some sleep.

How old were you when you asked Santa for that bike?

I asked for and finally got my red flyer wagon around 7. Came with the wooden
sides and held many fresh pretzels I picked up at the pretzel factory and sold during the
summer months, along with the Philadelphia Bulletin, who today are out of business.

Sold many to the Stallone & Fabian Forte families in Fishtown. Amazing what steroids does to your body. Sly was a skinny kid back then. :bigthumbsup:
