This week, the Heave staff was asked:
Ted was pretty successful this past weekend. What toy from your childhood would you want to hang out with today?
All of my Pokemon cards. Not so much to “hang out with” as to “rob banks and avenge my bullies” with.
Oh man, definitely the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! We’d eat pizza, play Sega Genesis, and most likely they’d teach me martial arts, which would be another thing to add to my list of unemployable talents.
I just spent a really long time contemplating this, and I’m still left thinking that the idea of a childhood toy hanging out with me today is pretty creepy, and that I have zero desire to see Ted. I’d be more interested in things like my plastic dinosaurs coming to life, but in a “this is a real and terrifying dinosaur” sort of way, as opposed to a “there is an animated toy dinosaur sitting on my couch and talking to me” sort of way.
Who wouldn’t want to hang out with the Power Rangers? Fanny packs and all.
Batman. All my answers are Batman from now on.
All I know is that I wouldn’t want Barbie hanging around.
I didn’t have as many toys as I had movies. I always wanted to hang out with the cast of The Goonies, though. They’d teach me swear words and we’d go on adventures and escaped convicts would try and kill me. It’d be awesome!
