I never received any action figures as a kid...

I just wasn't geared that way... I think. Can't say for sure, of course, had I got one perhaps I would have developed a desire for them.

Most of my gifts, as I recall, were in the 'construction' category... building sets, that sort of thing... ALTHOUGH... the greatest, biggest, gift I ever got as a kid was:

A Slide.... built at Orlando's Hardware, (local welding business). I have an old movie, 16mm, of that birthday and I think every kid in my home town attended... a personal slide was unheard of in those days. Yes, we had them at school... but a slide at your home? I was revered as a King at the birthday. laughing smiley

  My Brother was born in 1961. I always thought he came up with MUCH cooler toys.
