ELMO..Elmo rocks, I payed 15 dollars for this stuffed animal at canada's wonderland at one of the game booths..I just had to have him and i kept playing till i got him, I felt so bad for him being pinned to that wall.

As far as childhood go's, I don't really have any of my toys from my childhood..If i did, Remember that doodle board where you just slide the slider and it would erase whatever was on it? I loved that thing.

Transformers..I loved those guys too, I would have them on display in my room if i still had them.

I don't really know if this counts, but at college we occasionally play little kids board games without drinks. More commonly though, we go sledding, though I'm not sure if that counts either.

My childhood passion for matchbox cars and gi joe has morphed into a desire for racing sims, rpgs, and fps. And real cars.

Same games, just more expensive toys.

I started collecting gi joe again, mostly for display tho'.

Oh my, I have been drooling over that thing for sometime now...it's just so damn expensive everywhere.

For me I read comics so I have alot of superhero posters up. Also there are tons of action figures everywhere. I still have all my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles stuff stored away along with all my transformers and GI Joes.

I don't actively collect these because that way lies financial and spatial damnation, but I LOVE Playmobil. If I had the space and the money (and nothing better to do with them) I would collect all of them.

The other thing I like is children's lit from my own childhood - the Susan Cooper "Dark is Rising" series, Winnie-the-Pooh, the Chronicles of Narnia, Anne of Green Gables, etc. It's mental comfort food.

Porn. I'd have to say I liked boobies just as much as a kid as I do now.

Seriously though if I had the space, time and money to put into it I would love to have a kick ass model train. One with the little cities, mountains, trees, lights and other shit.

Anime, and none of that Draggin'BallZ or Naruto BS.
Magic the Gathering: I got into it when it first got big, but couldn't find anyone else to play with in my area, so quit. Come to college and find hundreds of people playing it.
Doodling: Not really getting around to anything, just scribbling little symbols or animals. It keeps me awake in class.
Video and computer games, but then again I'm a college student, so that's normal.

On my desk at home, there's a slinky, a container of silly putty, playdough, legos, clackers (these are really bad when you are on a conference call) Depending on which office I am in, there's always an assortment of toys on my desl..

Outside... kite flying and skipping stones... though catching tadpoles still has a certain amount of charm to it. Blowing bubbles is a lot of fun too, therapeutic even.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles- I have all of the original line of toys in a box in the attic. I wonder what they would fetch on ebay...

Hacky Sacks- I have, let me count them... 7 sitting on my desk right now. I think I have more that I've left at other people's houses...

Board Games- I'm a sucker for Sorry. And Operation, don't even get me started... And if you throw card games in here, I kick some serious UNO ass.

Unfortunately, most of my kid stuff got confiscated and given to my little sister when I moved out, so I'm in a process of restocking here.

Neopets - thought lately I've been so busy I've gotten bored with them and the website a little.

Oragami - though I've not done much of it recently either. I made a lifesize Eagle once with oragami. Pretty cool.

I guess I don't have much that I do myself - I have a 4 yr old daughter and babysit two 3 yr olds and one baby so I end up playing clay, house, shopping, Barbie Dolls, My Pretty Pony, Dr... Lots of those kinds of things.

I love doing puzzles but it's not something a youngster is always able to do anyway.

I never outgrew cartoons. I LOVE cartoons. I go to sleep every night watching Adult Swim on Cartoon Network and I used to record the Saturday morning cartoons but they all suck now but I still watch and record the Saturday evening cartoons on Cartoon Network. I never grew out of my love of Star Wars,Transformers, superheroes, and toy models.

But my room now shows my inner child and nerd.
I've got a bunch of comic book action figures.
Superman,Spider-man,Hulk,Captain America,Iron Man...etc...
And I've got a bunch of model and scale model cars.
Of course my Transformers. My parents never bought me the ones I wanted as a kid so I buy them now.
And my prides and joy. My Gundams.
Two or three times a year I'll pick up a model and spend about three weeks putting it together and obsessing over every little detail. I've got like 8 1:100 scale ones,10 1:144 scale ones all fully assembled and painted.

I don't let many people see my room because I know I'd catch hell for it but when I do show them most of them are impressed by the models because of all the tiny little details you have to paint on them to get them just right.

I always say if you keep your hobbies youthful you'll never grow old. It also helps in being able to connect with younger kids if you can appreciate how they see the world.

seriously, i don't think i've ever grown out of cartoons. during college, i had a break from 11:30 till 2:30 and would go home, make lunch, watch the smurfs, take a nap, and go back to class. now i watch futurama, simpsons, king of the hill, and family guy regularly. I'd watch DBZ if it came on. I have the transformers movie, i would watch them everyday as well. I also am a big TMNT fan. I wish the 80's cartoons would make a comeback. GIJoe, transformers, he man, gobots...then you have early 90's cartoons, xmen, batman beyond, superman, justice league, hell, one of mark hamill's (sp?) best roles ever was the voice work for the joker on the batman series. Most awesome music for a cartoon ever. i loved gargoyles and ducktales as well, the older ones, then animaniacs was always a fave...


now, my inner child loves old horror movies, freddy kreugar, jason, etc.

i act really childish but it's really obvious to those who know me that i'm a hardened person who's been alive long enough to understand people and thier intentions. i just grew up past the point of growing up; adults are a lot more childish than children most of the time. they refrain from doing things they want to just because it's concidered childish, even though they do the exact same things on a different scale. it's even more childish to attack someone for being immature than it is to be doing whatever is concidered immature, people just want to make themselves seem more adult in contrast or they woudln't even bother acting so grown-up. it's more wise to do what you feel like doing, and to express yourself however you deem fit. and if you like something "childish", as long as you know why you like it and you understand your motives, who cares if it's for kids?
