SIT AND SPINZ

I just realized what my life is missing and I would like to credit
Master Foley with this enlightening discovery!

I haven't been truly happy since childhood. I realized today, right this minute, that I haven't been happy since I outgrew my SIT-N-SPIN! It makes sense, doesn't it? After all, this toy could have you totally inebriated in a matter of minutes ....and it was FREAKING FREE, PEOPLE! I can remember being mad that I didn't get a happy meal or the last beer in the fridge and I would run in my room and slam my door ...and there is was in the middle of the floor ..just waitting to carry me away ...my sit and spin ...I would hop on and away we would go. I could spin that thing furiously for what was surely, at least, 7 minutes! Then fall back in the floor and close my eyes. ...It was mesmerizing and intoxicating. "I WANT MY SIT N SPIN BACK"

What was your favorite childhood toy?

    I think I liked matchbox cars ... making them go really fast and then putting the tracks together so they would crash. Unfortunately, I did that in real life 6 times before I was 21 LOL ... so maybe I should've gone "hoss style" with Rainbow :-D

    Even though I loved my sit and spin, I have to admit my fave toy as a kid was my Big Wheel. You could fly like the wind down the driveway before wiping out and scraping your knees...

    I feel the need...the need for speed...and then the crash and burn ;)
