    My mate had a Matchbox Motorway that actually worked. We got bored with cars and used to race rubber spiders on it.

    I had a Rolf Harris stylophone. Happy days.

    Me too. I had both large and small sizes but couldn't use one for a while because my brother tugged the stylus off of the wire. I was pretty happy when I discovered that the bare ends of the wire worked nearly as well.

    I really enjoyed this too, and started to record the first one to show my 11 year old daughter at a later date (as it was on quite late). Unfortunately, Jimmy Carr made comments to do with w**king etc more than once, which made me delete it and not show her. Shame, as it would've been nice to show her and have a laugh about the old toys as the celebrities were with their children (and i wonder how many of them let their children watch it through when it was on air?)
    Why does everything have to be reduced to the lowest level when it doesn't need to be?

    Aren't we all last century?

    Unless someone wants to admit to being 15?

    Jjimmy Carr is rubbish as a comedian anyway.everything for him is an excuse to belittle and demean.
    Other than him its amazing how many so called adults ridiculed the toys....rather than aknowledge in an age where there was not much else folks reacted in a different way.
    I remember when i got a car in a box game.but like etch a sketch where yu drove a car alinf road with a magnet underneath..i played with it for years happily as that was the toy of the day. or played happily with Plasticine or Meccano all day long.using my imagination.something modern toys dont seem to want you to use.

    I thought this was the BBC programme Back in Time for Christmas. I was properly jealous when the boy got a Johnny 7 (O.M.A.) in the 60's.
