Without question, my number one favourite childhood toy is my teddy bear, "Bar Bar" (pronounced "Bear Bear" ...I was 4, gimme a break, the only spelling I knew at that point came from German Sesame Street) I'll even let you all in on a little secret, not only do I still have him, but he still sleeps on my bed. Yup. He's been stuffed and sewn so many different times I'm not even sure what he's made of anymore, but above all he's still my childhood teddy.
Number 3 would have to be Fabuland & Playmobil.
I'm not sure how readily available Fabuland stuff was in North America. According to Wikipedia, Fabuland was a bridge between Duplo and actual Lego, but the line was discontinued in 1989, only giving me about 2 play-able years. The concept was similar to Lego but aimed more at younger children and it had an almost fairy-tale aspect to it.
Playmobil on the other hand, is still active to this day. The circus pictured down below was one of my absolute favourite sets, and I used to spend hours creating an entire circus complete with animals and acrobats.
Does anyone else remember Fabuland? Or am I slowly going crazy?
