So as I said, not really toys in the usual sense and since you split hairs over books it would seem fair to say not in the sense you're thinking. As far as claiming to be a prodigy, you might want to tidy up your writing -- I said I was designated as such.



    Then it is probably just as well that I don't have it.

    Part of getting studied, one gets tested a lot for things like that.



    I got through comparatively lucky but my parents went and became parents as flat broke undergraduates who moved every couple of years while my father progressed through his studies and eventually academia. Flat broke undergrads doesn't make it to the level you grew up with, but it wasn't exactly high up the food chain. Anything that didn't fit into the car didn't make it and books got priority over toys.
    Very much toys. I still enjoy games based on said designs.

    To each their own. In the 60s those things were still a novelty aimed at an older market, by now they may well have filtered down to younger age groups. Then again, I saw my books as a substitute for toys. There is plenty of grey area for different takes on some things -- a person who enjoys Warhammer 40K might or might not take issue with being described as playing with toy soldiers for example.

    And yet it’s entirely accurate to describe it as such. The increased level of complexity doesn’t negate the base nature.

    I'll be honest, I had way too many toys as a kid. I enjoyed Lego, Knex, the LGB toy train and all the action figures I bought, later on the gaming consoles and lastly my PC. There was no favorite unless you ask me for a specific time frame.

    Either Eitech or very similar USSR/Russian construction sets. I like Lego, but metal stuff feels sooo much better.

    Stuff like this:

    My old PC. I spent countless hours playing Red Alert 2, Rise of Nations, Age of Mythology. If not the PC then definitely just those little bags of plastic army men, i could spend days setting up mock battles in my head with them.

    I guess I'll be part of the 1%? It's a toss-up between old train sets and the black-and-white TV, as there wasn't much in the way of computers and video games in the homes yet. I went for those two because I'd build train towns while watching TV. I have fond memories of using pliers to operate the knobs on the TV since they were all broken off... glad to see antennae are coming back in style, although they're much better nowadays.
