the guys I know still love all toys! My hubby always has to play with the kids new remote control cars, and when he sees something cool he has to buy it for the kids just so he can play with it! His personal toys are his 4 wheel drives, our Jeep right now has 33" mudders, but they aren't big enough... when he gets done I'll need a ladder to get in it. I do have one for our Chevy Z71, it folds out on my side, lol.

I'm just the same, I get all the toys I like just to put them in my room and play with them, and then the wife comes and slaps me round the face and gives the toys back to the kids, balance restored

Well they take up the whole house with their train tracks and trucks and motorcycles that need ramps built. It's crazy! And if the ramp isn't good enough then they have to go out to the garage where the "big boy" toys (tools) are and build something better.

I understand.... A better ramp must be built, it is essential for the stunts to be great!

Of course they do, they have all the toys for themselves and don't share with anyone else, they are totally greedy.

I agree, but that is the way we are balanced between women as we are a simple sort and we just like to play with our toys!

yes definetly , the only difference is that their toys get bigger and more expensive. my husbands toy is his motorbike. then after that he collects tools . then theres the bbq which is whipped out if the sun comes out. he cooks, burns, chars ,, you name it . being a typical woman i hover around saying nasties like.. emm make sure that chicken is cooked properly or is that not a bit burnt hehe. cant resist.

My toy at the moment is this computer I'm never off it, and my wife says you'd better tuck the computer into our bed and be done with it! I always say but I'll get electrocuted if I try and plug my joystick in!

Yeah I always pick out all the toys for my son, so I know what I can play with when it comes round to opening his presents, my wife gets my daughters toys so that she can just remember the fond memories of barbie back in the 70's.

Action figures are for playing with. I happily still play with mine, and I've got an extensive collection so far. They do spend a lot of time displayed on my shelves, but I take them down and play with them when I get bored. And I am unashamed. :D

As you should, action figures of late are really detailed I find it hard to resist to buy none in a week!!

action figures collection - collections can be a combination of about anything.  and if they are toys who is to say they to play is a bad thing
Was once told that the only diffrence between men and boys is the size of their toys. So with boys it is trucks, connects!, legos etc. When men play it is power tools, cars, and the like. Collecting action figures is an interesting prospect. Wide variety and types. You are still fairly young too, so enjoy yourself!!

depends what you class as toys people say my motrbikes are my toys (we have taken to saying we got a new toy instead of new bike) a female friend of mine says men never grow up they just get bigger toys (we were in bed at the time so maybe it was a compliment! lol)

Boys play different toys than men. Mens toys are more expensive and more awesome than those for boys. Who wouldn't want to play those toys?

Depends on your definition of "toys". If I include my computers and all the associated gear, the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys.
