    I was spoilt for choice but voted "spacehopper" as I remember that brought more "joint" fun as my 3 sisters also had one each too & we didnt just bounce/race on them, we used to hold them by the horns & swing them to bash each other too. Oh what memories of the fun we had "yesteryear." ;-)

    Good collection

    Would love to have seen the classic 'Chopper Bike ' from the '70's

    Actually, I think it is quite a good selection, and as I was going through them they brought back lovely memories. Even better is the fact that I was with my Mum at the time of going through them so we were able to reminisce together. I suppose the problem is that everyone will remember different toys that will have a special meaning to them.

    I agree a very poor choice of the "top 10".

    Obvious missing contenders; Lego, Scalextic, Matchbox, HotWheels and Barbie. Others include; Slinky, Play-Doh, Newton's Cradle and others!

    What a poor choice, and in my opinion past the classic higher quality of toy. But an number of what I remember as 'naff' trashy plastic toys, not like the quality 1950's, only Meccano & Hornby OO represent the toys I enjoyed, but what was distinctly absent were first Dinky Toys, cars etc models, and later Corgi and Matchbox. In those days girls had less toys, but they may have had a number of dolls etc. The Meccano model shown is top of the range, Catherine wheel, where I had a lesser set(s) which were equally as good, infact super good. Also, a building plastic/metal rod method; "Brick -'something' ", okay less known. And there were also miniature bricks and a kind of actual cement, may be it was flour and water, but very sticky.
