At my childhood house in San Luis Obispo, the street was on a giant hill. When I was 4 and 5 I would bomb that thing on my Big Wheel, Nitro Circus style. So my parents got rid of the Big Wheel. I was really pissed about that for years. lol
The only way I would ever buys toys now is if I have a child.
I went to Universal Studios when I was 8. They had a Stormtrooper helmet. I wanted it so bad. My mom said "you just want it cuz you see it, in 20 years, you're not going to want it." Well...its 20 years later and I still wanted it. My mom ruined my fucking life.
Also, a power wheel and an SNES. I only had an NES until 2004.
