I'm feeling very sentimental this morning, and something made me think of Christmas back in 1969. In July that year, Apollo 11 had successfully landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong was the first person to every walk its surface. On Christmas morning, I opened my all-time favorite present: Billy Blastoff.
I remember playing with that toy for a long, long time. He had his own space ship, space crawler, space sled, space ATV, ray gun and radar screen. I saw a set like that on eBay recently for $250. I wish I'd kept mine! Not to sell it but just to have.
How about you? What was your favorite Christmas gift you received as a child?
