And in a shameless ripoff from Laurie Kendrick . . .

whose toy post induced a flashback to the days of the Sears Wishbook, I give you my favorite childhood toy . . . .

The Johnny Seven!

Yes, a seven-function pistol/battle rifle/grenade launcher/anti-tank rocket/heavy machine gun/rocket grenade/heavy rocket launcher! And with extra-dense plastic bullets that could leave your neighborhood rival for influence looking like he’d had 20 TB tests before dinner.

 Apparently my folks were able to get an export certificate for mine, because I brought it back from England and still was able to terrorize a moderate-size ville with relative ease.

Now go to Laurie’s place for some less warlike toys, while I go pacify some local sectarian violence . . . .
