Smurfs were cool,they might be still popular in Germany.
I saw some for sale in Spencers a while back.
I like buying old 80s toys from my childhood does that make me weird?

I have all of my oldest son's PeeWee Herman toys. Truth be told ... I actually bought them for ME to play with! LOL. My son is 24 now, so he'd probably be mortified if anyone knew he played with PeeWee stuff and watch PeeWee's Playhouse!!!

Nope, I think it's fun to have things from childhood, especially if you had a great childhood. memories

My youngest son and I collect robots from the 40's and 50's. We're trying to complete our "Gang of Five" set, but it's pretty dang pricey!

Are you talking about the one where all the little pieces are in those little cut outs and if you touch the sides of the cut outs with the tweezers it buzzes? We have one of those and we have a similar game we bought at The Duller Image called "Alien Autopsy".
