There was a commercial in the states for Skittles. An old farmer takes a dusty old wheel barrow into an empty dry field. He scoops a side of dirt away and plants one of each color of skittle, I believe he waters it. And after moments a rainbow BURSTS into the sky showering skittles into barrels the old man had prepared.
I did the same and waited eagerly.
The next time my mother was gracious enough to get me a bag of candy I took one of each color into hand and thought "The last batch must have been bad... These will work and I'll have millions of skittles!"
Then decided yeah, but I'd rather have flavor in my mouth now and ate them.
I love that immediate satisfaction that you HAD to have as a kid. Hehehe.
that skittles commercial was sweet, at the very least i bet you grew mountains of ants.
i like that frankenstein had the decency to dress his monster, and the laziness to not do up all of his jacket buttons.
If the views on toys being tortured by being thrown into stores, then what ever did all the poundland action figures do to deserve such overwhelming badly manufactured punishment, such thoughts are perhaps best left unknown to innocent minds.
i really wish sucho hadnt mentioned the buttons. now its really bugging me.
That bottom button is close to the monster's private parts, maybe Dr. Frankenstein didn't want to bump anything and feel like a perv.
i think the last button was left like that to attract Frankenchicks xD
great story,.. I cried a bit.
Interesting story. Nothing like the mind of a child.
This would make a good cartoon c: .... lest you'd rather not
WOOOOOOOOOO O-O ME GUSTA
I like this story, it's funny thinking about how our brains worked as a child, what we assumed people meant and all that. I still do things like this sometimes even though I'm an adult, haha. And that is a pretty cool action figure to receive as a kid.
Make an animation about it
I still have all my old Ghostbusters. Every once in a while I pull them out and play with them. I keep the four originals in the ecto-1 with four proton packs stuffed into the trunk. Its odd because when I put them away (without thinking) I put them in "there" seats. Some kind of back story from when I played with them as a child determent there seating arrangement.
I still have my pokemon yellow gameboy color with pokemon yellow.game works great, gameboy's speakers are broke but at least it takes headphones.
i still have all my power rangers toys the power rangers from season one tho
you just teased an animation didn't you? DIDN'T YOU!? *wink wink, nudge nudge, know what i mean?*
Interesting story. It's fun giving kids (IOW, my nephew) things when they don't get a lot of a things, just seeing their surprise and exhilaration gleaming in their eyes. I remember the appreciation I felt every time I received something, and I still remember where/when most things I own are from. But now... there's just too much stuff. Also my nephew is a bit of a spoiled brat with rich relatives on his mothers side, so he doesn't really appreciate anything less than an 18K gaming computer or a life-size radio controlled boat. :/ But still, the gift of giving is like a gift in living.
But for this one, instead of calling it Frankenstein's monster, you have to call it Frankenstein WITH POSABLE ARMS AND HEAD.
He looks like my aunt Nora
