The Toys I never got...

My Mom and Dad told me when I was little that not everything in this world you can have... I realized when I was older that it was a way not to spoil me. They did a pretty good job at raising 2 boys. Seriously.

But there are just 2 things I really REALLY wanted as a kid... I never got them though...

1. The Turtle Blimp from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

It was THE vehicle at that time! A blimp man! C'mon! How can you go wrong with that? You inflate this small balloon similar to the Wet Set stuff for the swimming pool.

I thought the Ninja Turtles had awesome vehicles. The toys where more awesome since not all toys appear in the movie. The Ninja Turtles were one of the best things out of my childhood to be quite honest.



2. The second toy I wanted SO bad was the 1989 version of OPTIMUS PRIME from Transformers. Need I say more? Here was the leader of the Autobots. A RED TRUCK with a container van attached that turns into a frikkin Robot. I got other Transformers but Optimus was always sold out! Mind you that Toy Kingdom/Toys R Us did not exist in the Philippines back then. We had Ultra Noblia in Virra Mall (Now called V Mall) and Babylane... Yes Babylane sold toys.


I'm not complaining. I got pretty cool toys growing up! I didn't get a lot of stuff as well... But if there were 2 toys that I really wanted it would be these 2...

What about you?

Hi,

Good for you, you have just two toys you never got.

It's not related to your blog but your mom and tita recently went to our school to talk about the Aquino family. I really liked your mom and your aunt. :) I look up to them and to you too as well :) I was so shocked when i realized that she was your mom! Haha I can't believe Jiggy's mom is in front of me! They were really interesting to listen to.

i can still remember the optimus prime that kinda resembled a costume/armor that i had as a kid.

i can still remember that HK was still the nearest place that's got Toys R Us back then.

I would have loved to own a Voltes V or Voltron (lions) robot! and yeah, optimus! I only got red alert and the box had japanese character labels!

gustong-gusto ko ng slimer sa ghostbusters, pero dahil muka daw yung kanuno sabi ni mudra, binilan na lang niya ko ng donatello.

siguro nga, mas kaya ng bituka niya ang pagong na ninja kesa sa berdeng multo.

I would have liked to own the TMNT's original Cowabunga Carl Van!

Also, my cousin had the Voltron Lion Force robot consisting of the 5 lions and I was jealous as hell.
