    My choice for the worst toy ever invented is... That damn HOT WHEELS RACE TRACK. Here was a toy that I played with religiously, until my mother used one of the tracks to beat my ass with one day in front of the whole neighborhood. I never looked at the toy the same again....

    Ain't that the truth! I remember trying to get that fockin' thing to crawl down the stairs when I was a kid only to see it flop all over the place and roll the fock down the stairs. I hated that piece of shit so I chucked it out into the street where a car could destroy the bastard.

    Not actually a bad toy, but annoying as %^&!! I never, ever did manage to put the puzzle back in order, so I would peel the stickers and reset them.

    You too!?! She(mom) did not do it in front of the neighbors though. But I hid(or threw away) anything that looked like it! Although it did not help because she whould find something new (and worse) to hit me with. This is why I did not play baseball!

    Who didn't do that? My dad bought me one as a kid and I'd never mess up the order 'cause I knew I couldn't get all the colours back. One day I came home from school and my dad had this silly grin on his face. I went to find my cube and he'd messed up the whole thing. The most I was ever able to do was get two sides ... and I think it was by accident. [img]icon_rofl.gif[/img]

    Well I guess you all needed a complete set of stairs from top to bottom (i.e. no missing steps)
    Slinky wasn't designed to skip missing steps. Sorry you were dissapointed.

    My slinky worked fine.

    What about that high speed "Cliff Hangers" race set by Tyco that never worked? If the cars made ti to the top...the fell to the ground!
    [img]graemlins/bolt.gif[/img] then crack / break / bang
    Another defect was, if the high point that the cars had to climb was not braced against the wall...that side of the track would eithe fall or fall apart.

    That pisses me off on Christmas...it looked very cool on TV but didnt work worth a damn at home. One thing I will say about Hot Wheels - Their products always worked - just like on TV

    Earthquake Tower. The Building was wack!

    Six Million Dollar Man. The one-eye vision was wack!

    PowerPassers: I realize now that the tracks never worked on carpets.

    Does anyone remember SLIME?

    That was some wasteful shit! Leave the can open too long and the shit would dry up.

    And you are right about those racin' tracks my parents use ta light our asses up with that shit.

    What about Playdough? That shit would dry up even if you did cover it up. And don't let that shit get in your carpet. You'll never get it out.

    Who can forget Slime? If that sh*t got in your carpet good luck getting it out. It also made your hands smell for hours. I also remember when Mattel created the "Slime monster" board game with the little people and the big monster (slime dispenser) that you had to avoid.

    DAMN...the things that used to keep us entertained.

    Don't tell me I was the only kid that bought a Sea Monkeys kit from the back of a comic book.
