    Anybody want to show off their traditional knife toys alongside actual children’s playthings?

    I like the okapi. Just wish I'd gotten an eland or two while they were available.

    Slingshots are often thought of as toys right ?
    With a little practice one can take squirrels with them so I don't, but I know some people wouldn't think twice about handing one to a kid along with a bag of marbles like it was nothing.

    I like to think so, but I also consider myself a big kid :)

    That is a gorgeous antler frame you have there!

    I absolutely love the idea for this thread.
    I think traditional knives bring a lot of us back to our youth and when we first started carrying pocket knives.
    It was a glorious time when we had knives like the big boys and still played with marbles and little green army men. :cool::thumbsup:

    Sadly no, but I might have to grab my Star Trek toys from work. ;)

    I have some old (1970’s) Dinky, Corgi, and Matchbox toys in my parent’s attic which I would love to display here along with some knives from the same time period. Sadly, it would be too disruptive to them at this stage for me to retrieve them.

    Thank you, I made it years ago from a rack a friend gave me.
    A couple months ago I ended up giving it to my cousin who really liked it.

    When I bought my Polaris Sportsman 400 back in the day, the dealer gave me this official Polaris model of it.

    My kids played with these when they were young. Now it's my grandkids playing with them.
    A familiar jingle right before Christmas, for many years.
    "The Hess truck's here!"
    Look closely and you'll see my Lloyd trapper.
