It doesn't have to be elaborate or expensive, just something you really remembered or enjoyed.
For me, it was a "Steve Austin" 6 million dollar man action figure. For some reason, I really remember playing with it a lot.
If you looked thru the back of his head, there was a little piece of plastic which acted like magnifying glass and was like his bionic eye. He had a little panel on his forearm that lifted up with a little decal of computer circuitry showing his bionic arm.
I remember when my older brother bought me a "Johnny Seven". It was a toy weapon that had seven weapons in one. A rocket launcher, machine gun, removable handgun, rifle with a real scope and some other "stuff". It was the neatest thing I had ever seen. I was seven or eight and I could barely carry it.
The thing would never be allowed on the market today because it actually shot real plastic bullets, (about 4ft) darts and missiles. You really could put an eye out with it.

Every year on Christmas all of my children and grand children come home. That is the greatest gift I get. having them all under one roof is More then I could ever ask for. This year the kids all got us new luggage for our next cruise in April. As the kids grow older and all move away. It is so nice to have them come home. We are growing by leaps and bounds. We now have 2 daughter in laws and a almost son in law. Our family grows and makes me very happy to have everyone of them here. Happy Holidays to everyone. Hope everyone here had a Great Christmas and have a happy new year.........
One year I was excited about getting a big person pillow. I must have been about three or maybe still two going on three. I really wanted a pillow like my siblings had. That sticks in my mind the most.
Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
