I remember two toys that I wanted but never got; a Star Castle and a Furby.





I also really wanted a Nintendo 64 but never got one.

Ultra Magnus.  My brother got him instead and he was confused about it as he wanted a bike.   :|

-American Girls Samantha & Molly

-More Barbies (one Christmas my sister got two full Barbies and I got a 6" Barbie knock off.... yeah, I wasn't happy).

-The Power Rangers zords.  Eventually I bought my own with some Christmas gift cards, but my cousin had every single Zord including the first series ones that were ANIMALS (instead of cars like I got...) and I was always soooooooooooo envious!

-I think I may have wanted a My Little Pony at some point.  I remember I saw part of one of the movies on TV which was SUPER interesting but it went on past my bed time so I couldn't watch it to the end... and I tried to rent it at the video store but it wasn't the same one  :cry:.  Then I went to a party and the daughter of the hosts had probably about 100x more toys than I did - including MLP.  I was fascinated but I was just starting to get to the age where dolls and ponies weren't so interesting anymore so by the time Christmas rolled around they didn't make my list.

-Figures of Hikaru, Umi, and Fuu from Magic Knight Rayearth and Sailor Moon figures in general.  The only way to get them back in the day was to live near a China Town (I didn't) or to buy them on yahoo or ebay auctions... but this was ages ago back when they were new sites and people still thought it was unsafe to give Amazon.com your credit card number.  So, of course, my parents didn't trust them.

Oh I forgot about the American Girl dolls! One of my friends had one (I can't remember which) and I always wanted one; but they were just a little too expensive for my parents to afford.

Nostalgia! I have that castle tucked away in the basement...albeit I don't even remember it being pink when I was a kid.

My childhood wants...off hand, I can remember this mermaid barbie my friend had that I wanted because I liked toys I could play with when I took baths. There was also this Digimon toy that was like a transformer where it can digivolve between two forms, I wanted the Garudomon because I was obsessed with Biyomon and her digivolutions as a kid.

Aside from that, all I can place is wanting to have a complete collection of beanie babies. Those were the main  toys of my childhood and I loved them to bits.

I wanted a Boglin and a My Pet Monster. I have both now, only my boglin is missing his eye part. One of these days I will find eyes that will fit him as I do adore my boglin!

There was a doll I wanted, don't know why, My buddy and Kid Sister from the 80s. Don't really know why I wanted them, I never really played with these types of dolls!

I always wanted a Star Trek Voyager: Captain Catherine Janeway. She was always my fav.

I love you, Zeo. ;-; Feel the Janeway love with me! She is my absolute role model in life, she is just so cool!

More Barbies. My cousin had a ton of them, a Barbie car, a Barbie Dreamhouse, PLUS a My Size Barbie, and I just had a hand full of the cheaper Barbies.

Same goes for (Bluebird) Polly Pockets.

Specifically though, I wanted a Nano Baby pet. I got a knock off called a Dinkie Dino. Haha.

I was a kid when the Pokemon storm of the late 90's happened. My mom really hates anything anime so she was not keen to let us have any Pokemon stuff. That was sad for me because my cousins and everyone at school had Pokemon stuff, and I felt like I couldn't be included.

On a side note, a few years ago my sister and I watched Howl's Moving Castle with my mom and I wasn't sure how she felt about it until a few months ago I came home and my mom was watching it while doing laundry :) It's anime!

What I want were, but never got: Jurassic Park T-Rex figure, Falconzord from the Power rangers and my most wanted was a gaming console, any. So years later I worked for 2 months and I bought one for me, a ps2. I regret nothing!

And here I thought I was alone on this one. I actually have a pic that is a rip of the WWJD bracelets. Wait let me get the pic and put it up here.

That's my husband's.
Every time we watch Toy Hunter and he sees a Jurassic Park T-Rex he starts gasping and talking about how he always wanted one but never got it.

I know that there were things I wanted but I'm not sure what they were...I think Sailor Jupiter and a Sega Game Gear. Probably Nerf guns. Gaming systems and fake guns weren't allowed when I was a kid, yet I had a TNG Phaser and water pistols....
I remember there were those toddler looking dolls that you could color change makeup and stuff. I remember my mom not liking those because she didn't like makeup on young children.And any dolls that had the drink n wet function...
Oh! i do remember wanting a Power Wheels but I was too old for them which made me upset because the Power Wheels were for the toddler to 8yr set and then there was no car-like toy for the tween set. LOL
