Where you grew up I think has a lot to do w/ our Mego memories. Different environments make for different play situations. A city kid will not have the same play experiences as a kid from the burbs, and a suburban kid wouldn't have the same experience as a kid from a more rural area. So what was your play environment like? What would you use to enhance your play? A fire escape? Trees? Mud puddles? Monkey Bars at the local playground?
Let's go back in time and play awhile!
