I was thinking about the toys I played with as a kid because I was watching Toy Story 3 again and it made me nostalgic. Also, this is the toy buying and giving season we're in right now.

I had a Barbie and a Ken, which I shared with my sister.
Twister
Slinky (not Slinky dog, just the Slinky itself)
Etch a Sketch
Crayola crayons, with ALL the colors, such as Burnt Sienna, and the box had a crayon sharpener
To go with those, I had a coloring book that reproduced medieval tapestries. I got to color all the knights Burnt Sienna!
Monopoly
Scrabble
Dominoes
Raggedy Ann
Raggedy Andy
I also had a Raggedy Ann book.

I don't recall having a teddy bear, but my brother had a stuffed leopard which my sister and I played with also. It's still in my mother's house.

I probably had other toys but I can't think of them right now.


ETA: Oh, I also had a Hula Hoop!

I stunk at it.

Oh the Crayola box. I loved it until it fell and all the crayons went everywhere. It was never the same without the colors in order...

Lite-Brite, Legos, slinky, Etch-a-Sketch, Scrabble, Monopoly, Speak & Spell, Lionel trains, Lincoln logs, spirographs, Talkboy, Pogs.

Another "toy" for me was a screwdriver. My mother could never give me anything electronic without me taking it apart and putting it back together.

I was trying to remember the specific name of that "graph" thing I had. Yes, I had a Spirograph, too! I loved it!
I also had a kaleidoscope.

I had a Etch a Sketch and a light-brite (which wasn't as cool)
Lincoln logs some, but mostly Legos!
GI Joe, Barbie, and Star Wars action figures
Littlest Pet Shop
Remote control cars, micro machines
Raggedy Ann dolls (there was a set of different sizes) but I didn't play with them so much as have them
More stuff animals that you can shake a stick at in every species I could get my filthy mitts on

Probably the most played with were Legos and Littlest Pet Shop

I had an obsession with my Cabbage Patch Kids. But I kept getting told off because I'd draw on their heads with felt tips....& so my Mum threw them out in the end
Cuts me deep to this day.
She will never be forgiven.

Polly Pockets too.

Oh geez, gotta think a bit...

For now:
Lego's, none of the pre-fabed kits they have now, just block sets.
Matchbox cars
Magnifying glass, had more fun burning stuff outside with this

GI Joe
Wrist rocket (slingshot)
BB gun
Pocket knife
Atari 2600
There's more and I'll think of them later... most of my childhood was spent getting kicked out of the house to play outside all day.

I even had the Barbie Porche, RV, and the Barbie McDonald's playset.

Did you have Doctor Barbie who could perform a heart bypass on one of the other Barbies when she ate too many Big Macs?

No. All my Barbies were Stepford Wives. They didn't start making the Useful Career Barbies until later on.
