It ... it doesn't seem like that island would be big enough for a factory, much less houses and employees etc.
Piepiep sounds cute!
All the Fabuland toys are cute.
There are only three toys I remember from my childhood ...
1. There was a Lego set which us kids once used to create a gigantic
pirate ship. How large was it? Well - it took up a quarter of my room.
I was sad when my parents told me to dismantle it and clean up the room.
2. I had a fairly large Transformers collection (the original ones from the 80s), but it was lost (or given away) when my family moved to Australia. I understand it now, there wouldn't have been room for it in the suitcases ... but ... it's too bad. Ditto a Transformers picture album from the 80s.
Holy Cow - there are Transformers toys available now - but at $100+ a pop on Amazon AU, that's ... exorbitant.
All right, this is strange: some of them are $100+ even in local shops, one is $50, one is $20 and one is $8. What the...?
3. I had an original Atari 2600 when I was a kid, as well as a Commodore 64. (But I was only allowed to play them on the weekend, and only for an hour, because they plugged into the TV). With things like the X-Box, Playstation, Nintendo Wii etc., I guess things haven't changed that much (except, of course, quality of graphics).
The Atari 2600:
The Commodore 64:
By the way, I think the brand-name "Nintendo Wii" - in the English language, at least - is probably the worst marketing decision of all time, launching as it did a long, long
list of puerile jokes...
Oh, and ...
4. I remember when I was very little (maybe 2-3) I was given a stuffed rabbit, dark brown on the outside and light on the inside, with ears that stuck up and a cutesy little tail. It was about as tall as I was.
In terms of colours, it resembled something like Wile E. Coyote, only - you know - friendlier. And not a coyote.
It was my favourite childhood toy, even when he lost (and retrieved) an eye. Gee. Now I wonder what happened to it. (Probably went to some other lucky kid...)
