More Fun Things I Never Ordered

I was too timid a lad (or maybe too smart) to be willing to fork over a whole five bucks or so for a real tank or a real Polaris Sub.



Besides, when I was three I'd used an ice pick to poke the family swimming pool full of holes, so I wouldn't have anywhere to float the submarine, anyway.
X-Ray Specs, now -- that would have been something!

Mark,
I have searched eBay for almost ten years, trying to find one of those Polaris Submarines! No luck yet. When I was a kid, a friend of mine bought the "Davy Crockett Log Cabin" that was really just a plastic table-cloth that fit over a card table. It still was a cool "fort" for us to play in for a while!
