Best Presents Recieved as a Child

Remember that year when Mum and Dad really came through for you? No socks, no sweater, no luggage under the guise of 'gifts.' What was the best loot you ever scored? Mine favorites were:
  1. Pound puppy
  2. Sweet, sweet boombox circa 1990
  3. White roller skates with purple wheels and pink laces
  4. Unicorn bedspread
  5. Ant farm (!?)
  6. Mini potter's wheel
  7. One of those giant art kits with water colors and colored pecils and lush, thick paper
