Used to have the track thing also Andrew, remember we had that much we could make a track from upstairs, down the stairs and into the dining room.
To be honest though we used to go out a lot, if it was dry we were out on our bikes, growing up in a little village we had loads of places over the fields that we used to go, the village bobby would often take us home for getting up to no good, but all harmless stuff.
Mrs lad goes out once in a blue moon, prefers to sit in his room with curtains shut playing xbox, how the world has changed.

Yes we had those. Called then "stairwalkers" rather than slinky.
Being a very large house (4 floors and BIG) there were a lot of stairs for these to walk down. Outdoors we had dinghies in the pond, ponies in the stables, bow and arrows, swimming pool, tennis court etc etc but the Darda cars were the coolest thing in that house as far as I'm concerned.
I like the fact they are so small yet so capable. Proper little cars they are.
Looks like I won't get the track until Wednesday as the post office depot only open 8-10am today and tomorrow and I am in wrong place at that time of the day.
tbf, I am playing with a raspberry pi at the minute, I have managed to download and install nearly every game you can think off from the early days, Atari 2600, Commodore 64 and plus4, Nintendo, super Nintendo, mega drive, game gear, playstation 1, Gameboy... all for free.
Sekiden Pea gun. Pea shooter. Lego. Hercules bike. 3 rail Hornby train set and Minic track and cars. String and tin can phone. Proper fireworks, 1p & 3p bangers, Catherine wheels, jumping jacks, banger gun made of steel conduit with one end hammered shut with a brick. Bamboo cane, nail and string fashioned into a throwing spear. Or made into a bow and arrow. My brothers mate had action men. We were poor.
