I used to love playing those tabletop hockey games

Yea! The ones with the players that slide like the set pictured! Not the static ones that just twirled.....

I kinda interpret the title as asking what "I" think are the top 15 greatest toys ever....not necessarily own em. Lot of this turns out to be made by Marx...what a great toy company!

Marx BO Frankenstein
Marx BO Kooky Spooky Tree
Marx BO Haunted House
Marx BO Yeti
Marx Big Loo
Marx Great Garloo
Marx Rock Em Sock Em Robots
Ideal Robot Commando
Ideal King Zor
Ideal Haunted House
Remco Hamilton's Invaders
James Bond 007 Attache Case Gun Set
Deluxe Reading Defender Dan (Machine Gun)
G I Joe
Aurora T-Jets

Ha! I think these all fall within about a 3-5 year time span of one another......Early to mid 60's were magical years! Lest that's my opinion.....

The above five from your list are currently fairly high on my informal miscellaneous toy want list. I still remember how awesome the Marx Great Garloo looked to me the first time I laid eyes on one at the age of nine in the downtown London Kresge store. I pointed it out to my mother immediately but it was too much of a toy for which to ask and I knew it. I quickly forgot all about it until I saw it pictured in Bill Bruegman's book some twenty years ago. Yes, yes, that was the fellow I saw at Kresge's that day so very long ago!



Incidentally, I highly recommend Bruegman's book to any baby boomer or toy collector. I absolutely marvelled at how it hit upon precisely the toys I treasured the most as a kid.

 No particular order and these are only toys I actually owned.  I've tried to widdle it down to the one main "greatest-to-me" toy in each line.  My brain hurts trying to single out one, but here goes!

1.  12" GI JOE - My all-time favorite was a bearded & battered, brown haired brutish wrestler-type.

2.  BEST OF THE WEST (including The Silver Knight, etc.) - CHIEF CHEROKEE was my main fave.

3.  CREEPY CRAWLERS/FRIGHT FACTORY - Couldn't decide which one I liked best.  Probably FF.

4.  MARX 5-6" MONSTERS - CREATURE was my personal fave.

5.  MPC SMALL MONSTERS - Never owned Pop-Tops  :(.  WOLF MAN/WEREWOLF was my favorite.

6.  ITC MARVEL METAL GORILLA MODEL - Loved this thing.  Hard to even find pics of it now!

7.  AURORA MONSTER MODELS - FRANKENSTEIN.  No, KING KONG.  I mean FRANKENSTEIN...

8.  FORT APACHE PLAYSET - Think it was by MARX.  It frequently got attacked by...

9.  DINOSAURS! - Can't remember who made what, but the greatest, in my mind, was a T-REX.

10. ALLIGATOR - Don't know who made it, but it was 10-12" long and fought other monsters and...

11. ARMY MEN! - Yikes! 2-3" SIZE.  So many to choose from!  But, I did have two favorites!

12. PALMER MONSTERS - KING KONG...  or maybe FRANKENSTEIN...  no, no...  KING KONG.

13. HOT WHEELS - 1968 GOLD CUSTOM T-BIRD.

14. MARX MIGHTY KONG!!!!

15. A LITTLE, 2" HARD PLASTIC, HALF BULL/HALF BUFFALO FIGURE - No idea of it's background,
     but, to me, it was the greatest "King-of-Beasts" of my animal kingdom

I still miss the Unkown Primate. His passing hit all of us on this board very hard.
