Most of the things I wanted as a kid, I actually bought for myself when I got older. Best bit about becoming an adult and having your own money
The one mail order thing I ever wanted I got. A giant SDF-1 from Robotech.
DUDE! I totally wanted one of those! Will get one at some point.
I wanted to control animals' behavior with my mind.
Me too. Mostly because I was terrified of dogs until I was 13.
