    I do know what they look like and have seen the before, but I never got to play with them, and I have no idea how to play with them. I thought that they are just random collectibles or something.

    Now you make me curious how old you are lol....

    Physical toys are one of those things like... are legos awesome? Yup. How does its price compare with minecraft though? Minecraft instantly wins right there. Infinite amount of blocks to build whatever you want~

      Pogs! They were awesome haha. There were the regular ones which i think were made of cardboard or something and then you had the "slammers" which were metal or made of a heavier material than the regular pogs. All you had to do was make a stack of pogs and throw your slammer on em all the ones you knocked off were yours then it was your opponents turn. I think it was mostly a game of keeps but i can be wrong.

      But when you have a bucket of legos because all your cousins grew out of them and pawned them off on you it costs nothing! /has a bucket of legos

      But yeah, would never buy them 'cause they're too expensive.

        But then someone will be stuck with all the toys and then you go "so what do I do with all of this stuff now D:"

        I'm certainly having that problem with my old toys myself... and no siblings to share the burden with haha.

        Knex > Legos.

        Anyone who has built stuff from both will know this.

        Speaking of old, I'd actually forgotten that those things existed. :( Then again, I don't think they were as popular in my town as in other places, possibly (as I recall, I do remember seeing some around but it wasn't some omg huge craze). My town was kind of slow in picking up certain things back then.

        (Never got into Minecraft, or played it at all, but I'd also say that it wins over Legos because you can't step on any of those blocks. Ohhh, the pain.)

        Heck, forget now, I'd say toys have been on the decline for years and years. When I was a kid, I recall wanting to play my video games over anything else. Toys? Action figures? Nah, can I play my SNES instead?

        I'm flashing back to that sad scene in Toy Story 3.

        Toys won't ever go away though since they're good for kids developmentally. Or something like that. Screens are really bad for them.

        I kind of want to go home now and play with my brother's LEGOs. Thanks guys.

        Toys do seem to be 'going out of style', but yeah, they'll always be around. There will (hopefully) always be parents who believe that it's not wise to grow your kids up on pure technology. Go outside! Play! Make a meal with the fake kitchen and fake plastic food down in the playroom! Y'know, that sort of thing.

        Lego!!!11!!!! I just put together a Lego kit the other week.

        They are going out of style, and the ideas for toys are becoming more and more unoriginal imo. Hopefully, though, there will be some of us that give our kids a doll or a a doll house and let them use that instead of iPhones or Xbox 360s.

          The biggest memory that I have of Lego actually involves the doctors' office. While I had Lego as a kid, I can always remember really liking going to the doctors either as a patient, or accompanying my mother/brother/father, because there was a massive Lego set in the waiting room. I'd make all these massive sculptures and I would be so happy. Pure unadulterated happiness. :D

              No really, Lego is much more awesome than Minecraft if you ignore the money aspect. Like, which is more awesome... I honestly think that the reason why toys fade out in favor of apps and whatnot on computers is because digital entertainment cost less and doesn't take up so much space.

              This is cool and all...

              But THIS is epic!

                The Mindstorm sets are really fun. We used them in Robotics 10 and 20, and we get to program them in Robotics 30 using pure C.

                The set I have was a Lego Hero Factory set. It's pretty cool too.

                That Lego stuff is quite impressive. There's also the fact that they require considerably more physical dexterity and flexibility to make that stuff without breaking it accidentally.

                Man I loved legos. I was especially obsessed with the Star Wars Episode I legos when they came out. :D I remember my friends and I would build different planets and have big wars. I always got Naboo because I thought it was pretty haha.

                  I don't know if this is considered off topic or not, but I can't say I like the way the Chat Thread is on this forum. I realize you can't have everyone changing the topic every post, but I find it extremely difficult to jump in and just talk about the topic at hand. It's usually something I can't really talk about and it's less of a chat thread, but more of a discussion about a topic. I don't even think that made sense, but whatever.

                  It's easier to jump in and more free-form if you can change the topic whenever you want or whenever you feel appropriate, or just post something and if the topic changes, it will, but if it doesn't, oh well.

                  (This is probably going to get deleted for being off-topic. Bleh.)

                  No, you're fine. I understand what you're saying and I agree to an extent, but that's one of the reasons why we have clubs. They're like separate DCC threads for individual topics and they're less hectic than DCC.

                  The problem with not having a rule about changing the subject is that if we didn't have it, we'd have a whole bunch of different people holding a dozen different conversations and it'd be way too hard to keep track of. :/

                    I see where you're coming from. I have a thread like this on another forum but it's a lot more bearable because it's much more of a secret club where all the regulars (just a small group of forum veterans, pretty much) just hang out and watch and laugh at the rest of the forum, whereas here I can see why.

                    I've also never really checked out clubs because it seems like a real hassle to join and there doesn't seem to be much purpose to joining other than the novelty of having joined a club.

                    You can talk with people who share the same interests and/or mindset as you though - I think that's the main draw of joining a club.

                    Also, on the old topic, I loved Legos as a kid but I didn't have that many. They were/are so freaking expensive. :|

                      I was going to post about how I was totally ****ed going against the Elite Four with my current team, but don't even know what kind of club that would fall under anyway. Or thread of any kind. :/

I realize you can't have everyone changing the topic every post, but I find it extremely difficult to jump in and just talk about the topic at hand. It's usually something I can't really talk about and it's less of a chat thread, but more of a discussion about a topic. I don't even think that made sense, but whatever.

                      It's easier to jump in and more free-form if you can change the topic whenever you want or whenever you feel appropriate, or just post something and if the topic changes, it will, but if it doesn't, oh well.

                      (This is probably going to get deleted for being off-topic. Bleh.)
                      As Audy said, if we didn't have the rule then the conversation would get really disrupted and this'd end up turning into more a "Post Your Thoughts Right Now!" thread than anything else. The fact that the topic does change in this thread kinda goes to show that it's free-form, though. I definitely get where you're coming from and it's unfortunate that you find it hard to jump into the conversations here but it's for the best that we don't allow random topic changes.

                      From what I remember having joined like... a club, all I had to do was fill in a short form with my name, what I liked in particular about the subject the club discusses, and a couple of other things which idr now and that was it. I guess, if you only see the novelty of joining a club, then just think of it as a really big discussion rather than a club. Maybe you'll find you get more out of it approaching it that way.
