Kids toys aren’t the same as when I was a youngin’.
Our parents would buy these Captain Power toys – mainly the white ship and the black ship (which were also laser tag guns).
We would then sit and watch the show and shoot our ships at the screen.
The screen would shoot a message back and our ship would respond by taking a hit.
So many hits and our little pilot ejected from the cockpit.
Even better? We could use these ships away from the TV to have gunfights with our friends! We could shoot at each other and the same amount of hits would eject the pilot again.
So it’s funny when people my age say, “I used to play outside with a stick and some mud!”
No you didn’t.
