I'm sure others around my age can relate but I have started to think of the things I could get as a little kid and then could not obtain at all. I am speaking of items like shooting missiles and "Slime". When I was under the age 5 or 6 everything had shooting something or another. I especially remember my Jumbos and those flying fists. Slime came in garbage pails and often had bugs or worms in it. Thanks to lawyers both went off the market for quite a while. It was devastating to obtain the newest toy only to push the release button and have the projectile fall limply to the floor like so many geriatrics before Viagra. The urban legends I heard were that some kid had stuck his Cylon Raider in his mouth and fired the missile into his throat and subsequently choked to death, leading to lawsuits and a lack of springs. Some other brilliant lad apparently ate like 3 mini garbage pails of slime and met his maker with green ooze still wetting his lips. If you are related to either of these fine individuals, my apologies but thanks to these geniuses and a bunch of suits I had to grow up sans these wonderful toy innovations. I remember Nickelodeon brought back Slime but the firing missiles didn't make a return till after my parents insisted I was to old for toys.
