    Rocks are pets, not toys.

    What about dirt? I played with dirt more than sticks.

    There was no dirt when you were a child. Dirt came later. :devil:

    I was going to suggest that the cardboard box should be the next inductee, but it turns out it was inducted in 2005.

    I still remember my favorite cardboard box. I also remember every single bicycle I've ever owned.

    I probably kept really good sticks for a while, but I couldn't remember what a single one of them looks like today.

    And dirt clods are much more fun toys than rocks. A good rock fight lasts maybe 10 seconds, while dirt clod fights can go on all afternoon.

    In Holland typically the muddy rain water pool would top the collection.

    I was beaten with a stick when I was a wee child, I don't consider it as a toy... Maybe an evil toy...

    LOL! I remember the "pet rocks" craze. What an incredible marketting scam!

    Of course, I had a few pet rocks when I was a child but, since we lived out in the country, I had free-range pet rocks. Just found them in the wild and domesticated them myself.

    Same here. Some, like flint, were edgy and hard to tame, but some were gneiss all along.
