This has to have been one of my favorite "toys" ever. My parents weren't ones to get the latest toy just because I asked for it, but they did indulge me here by buying me a Spirograph set. It really was one of the most exciting things I remember receiving. The tricky part was getting the pins positioned in the paper and cardboard--the Spirograph today I'm sure doesn't have the pins. The company came out very quickly with a younger edition called "Spirotot." Again, Moma and Daddy bought that one for me. It was much better suited for my age (probably 5 or 6).
I still love coloring and drawing although the best I can do is to stay in the lines.
What were some of your favorite toys?
