    For the more 'mature' members, what about:

    Bar Six

    The Wooden tops

    Bleep and Booster


    When a cadburys flake cost 12d :oops:

    Noggin the Nog

    Pogles Wood

    Clipping a piece of cardboard with a peg to your bike wheel, so that it sounded like an engine.

    Putting the pink/red/orange quality street wrapper over your eyes to watch tv, so that it looked like you were watching colour tv.

    Getting told that if you were bad, your parents would get the police to take you away, then in the next breath, them telling you that if you were lost, always go to see a policeman. I didn't know what to do then. :cry: :? :shock:

    Those were the days

    Trollies! - no, not that sort. Every kid used to have one. 4 old pram wheels, two planks of wood, a six inch bolt for the steering pin, a bit of old 'rope' washing line to steer it with and an old orange box as a seat.

    Argh - them where the days!
