It seems that everything mail order took forever to arrive back in the day. Even from the JcPenny catalog.

When I was in 3rd grade I sent in my Bazooka comics for a "space radio phone". That was in the spring of that year. When they arrived I was already in the 4th grade, I kid you not.

And all they were was 2 metal discs and some string, like when you used tin cans to make a telephone. Don't know what I actually expected to get for nothing, but still, I was so pissed!

Tonka Trucks! I had about 20 of them, the good ones made out of steel! I even had the firetruck that hooked up to the garden hose and squirted real water via a hydrant and cherry picker. They were awesome!
