Kids would get PTSD watching The Three Stooges today. All the head pounding, eye pokes and nostril pulling is far too violent. A whole generation would file for SSI.

Model Railroad Trains as a Christmas present. If you were lucky enough to get one you ran it on an oval track under the Christmas tree.

Yep my silver and red Sante Fe Tyco Train HO set served me well in my youth.

Mine was an Lionel O guage Minneapolis & St.Louis. I used to take tinsel off the tree and lay it across the track, when the locomotive ran over it sparked like crazy!

My older brother bought a model train set with his paper route money. He set it up under the Christmas tree. When he wasnít around I decided I would oil the wheels to make it go faster. Who knew youíre not supposed to put oil on train wheels?

P.S. He was not a happy person when he found out.

Itís funny until somebody gets hurt, then itís hilarious

BB guns. I guess you could say I was sort of an outlaw before I turned 12 and was officially able to hunt. Pretty much anything was fair game back then.
Now if a kid was out walking around with one he would probably have the cops called on him. At least where I live.
