5 Toys I Would Loved To Have

When I was a kid there was always something bigger, something better than what I had. My toys were never the newest thing (even though my mom stood for hours to get me a Cabbage Patch Doll) or the fanciest (which I showed I would take excellent care of by leaving my Barbie on the porch)during a tornado.

My childhood seemed to be one long exercise in wanting something else.

I kinda want to go back and slap the crap out of childhood me. Instead, it helps me better deal with the wants and whines of my own children.

And then I see these.

I become 5yo again.

    Tell me you haven't looked at kids on the sidewalk and yearned for one again. For just $600 you can have your very own.

    No more thinking how nice it would be to dump that kid out of that wagon and lean back for a ride again.

    This bb gun shoots 1400 pellets in a round and it was designed to look like the gun in "Predator". Need I say more?

    It has water, power, AC and cable. This camper is so much nicer than my first apartment it's not even funny
