today when i got my first ever football kit, couldnt wait till boxing day morning out on wreck with my mates,we picked teams and played for about 3hrs, score was about 21-19 or summat like that,it were like that scene from Kes (but no teachers), Norman Deeley was in fine form that boxing day morning scoring a double hat-trick, the shirt and shorts only fit me for a couple of years but once the socks had been washed they streched to about 3ft long (knitted) was still wearing em in 1965.!!!! What xmas box sticks in your mind, over 50s only. U.T.M. ps no blow up dolls or sex toys please.

I was only 3 months old at that time so first kit came 6-7 years later. Thinking back I'd have to say getting a Scalextric (late 60s) is the one Christmas that sticks in my mind.

I remember them, chocolate pipe, cigars, lighter, cigarettes etc. Would be classed as child abuse these days. Not much to be found via internet searches either. Just one image seems to resemble what I remember. - view external link (http://9gag.com/gag/a75ogbm/chocolate-junior-smoker-s-kit)

That is DANTASTIC! My earliest/best early toy was a circular, metallic wind-up train set. I was mesmerised. That was probably '52.

I think you mean a Dan Dare radio station. For our younger readers Dane Dare was a universally known spaceman. He was unfortunately captured by aliens who said they were going to execute him. He said "you can't do that I'm the universally known spaceman Dan Dare" They said they'd never heard of him and what they would do was take him back to Earth and if the first person he met recognised him they would spare him otherwise they would execute him.

To Dan's despair they landed in darkest Africa where they had neither radio nor TV. The first person they came across was sitting in a tree, so with great trepidation our hero shook the tree to attract his attention. The gentleman looked down and said the immortal words "Who dat dan dare?" and our hero was saved.

God, yeah! Wasn't it foul-tasting chocolate! Couldn't have tasted worse if you had actually smoked it!

I used to love Fry's and Cadbury's selection boxes and probably ate a full box before breakfast whilst reading my Dandy, Beano and Bonanza annuals.

I remember a toy Castle (straight out of Cooper's toyshop window) filled with Brittain's knights in armour one Chrimbo. Another time it was Fort Laramie filled with Cavalry and Native Americans (ParkgateMiller - Mr 'P.C.', lol). I never got a Scalextric which I always wanted. :blue:

PS

One of my favourite toys was a torch with a disc in the lens-end where you could turn it and change the colour to red or blue or green or yellow. Played in the dark with it for hours.
