    If you could turn back the clock to get a game or toy you had as a kid, what would want for Xmas? I would want Mouse Trap! (however, I remember the layout being better for some reason!)

    Crossfire - the real one, not the smaller one available nowadays :) You know, the one that'd take your fingers off if you got in the way of one of those ballbarings :)

    Aye, that was one of my favourites. As was Flight Deck, where you had to land a phantom jet on a carrier deck. Just bought my two year old a train set for Christmas, don't know if it's really for him though.

    Any Scalextric.

    Ouch I remember these well. The number of bruises you got from these :cry: - should have had a government health warning on 'em!!

    Crossfire was a great game! But the cheap plastic trigger used to really hurt your fingers and if you overloaded the gun with BB's it would spit them out of the top hopper. They certainly don't make them like they used to. Which might be a good thing really. :)
