Mine was probably a Commodore 64, but that's a computer, not a toy, so I'd probably have to go with LEGO or Matchbox cars (like Hotwheels for those of you in North America).

Doesn't count!  I mean, I can pretty much assume most folks on this site would pick a console, so let's say BESIDES a console...

But since you raised it, Rave do you remember your first few games on the 2600?

Mine were Space Invaders, Pinball, River Raid, Freeway and Fishing.

Chopper Command was probably the first game I saw on a 2600.

Bicycle is a damn good choice too though.  It's basically a car for a child and having that kind fo independence trumps any other toy.

A bike is even less of a toy than a console. Hrm

Unless you're Iga.

Difficult to say, either TMNT toys or I was fond of the huge Dino Riders T Rex toy.

It walked with batteries. Totally badass.

The series was shite though.

That might be true if all one used a bike for was to travel from point A to point B. No, my friends and I would do stupid but fun things with our bikes, like building ramps on small hills to see how high we could jump. I'm surprised I never broke any bones doing that crap, lol.

Though that means we can categorise anything as a toy. The things I've done with a knife! Nyaa

Not that I mind you doing so really!

Super Soaker

I had a lot of phases when it came to toys. WHen I was 6 it was all about He-Man. When I was 7 it was Transformers. 8 was GI Joe. But the one constant for me was water guns. When it was summer time it was just a bunch of water gun wars. And each summer a more evolved water gun came out. Right around the time I was 11 or so the Super Soaker came out, and it was the ultimate. Water streams shot 30 feet and it was a strong blast and not just a quick squirt. Loved my super soaker. I ended up getting a huge collection of them (which was good because really they broke as easily as a first gen 360), and could supply half the neighborhood kids for our wars - though more often I didn't share and preferred to stay armed with 5 guns at a time.

Super soakers were great. I made one kid cry by spraying him at close range. He was weak and needed to learn a lesson.

I used to really love Domino Rally.  I hated playing with other kids because they always fucked up and dropped one before we finished setting them all.  Wish I still had my set.
