Little Green Army Men have been around forever. When I was little, a hundred of them could be bought for ninety-nine cents, and they came in an army locker made of cardboard. Of course they were not as fancy as the Green Army Men that can be bought today, but still, I had many hours of fun playing with them. There is something so cool about toy soldiers. You can let your imagination go wild, and create all kinds of battlefield situations. Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Toy Box, wherever you may be.

Can you remember the beautiful halcyon days of your youth when you did not have a care in the world, and spent a wonderful Saturday afternoon flying a kite in a park? Well, I still have very fond memories of those times. I wish that I could turn the clock backwards, and relive those warm and tranquil moments when I sailed kites in the Elysian Fields of my youth. There is something so mystical about flying a kite. It seems so simple, but it is really magical at the same time. You guide the kite by its silvery umbilical cord, and make it dance in the light fantastic of the sky. Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Toy Box, wherever you may be.

I have very fond memories of playing with my toy trains during my childhood. My first train set had an engine that was spring driven. That means that I had to wind it up to make it go. It did not matter to me though, I had a lot of fun with it. Later on I got my first electric train, and I was hooked on trains forever! That set had a train station with people, and assorted object. I could not believe how much I enjoyed playing with it. Do you think that children nowadays can be as fascinated with trains, as much as we did in the old days?

Monopoly is my most favorite board game. As a child it held a curious fascination for me. I remember the super long games that we used to play when the weather was rainy. Monopoly is a magnificent game. Even though I live alone in a small apartment in Waikiki, Hawaii, I still get to play Monopoly whenever I want because I have four different versions that I can play on my video game systems. I play it on my Nintendo Entertainment System, SEGA Genesis, SEGA Master System, and the original Gameboy. I have a special strategy that I use to defeat multiple computer players. It works most of the time, and is based on the fact that the computer generated players are basically greedy. Safe journeys to all the fans of Endyr's Toy Box, wherever you may be.

For those of you have not yet discovered the joys of Orson Scott Card's "Ender's Game", now is the perfect time to begin experiencing it. Back in 1992, a user logged on to a BBS that I was operating called "Beneath The Ruins", and while in chat mode, I asked him about his curious handle which was "Endyr". He said that it was based on a book he read called "Ender's Game", and that he changed the second "e" to a "y" in Ender to make it look cooler. He was right, it does look "way cool"! It was so cool that I adopted it as my handle. I read the book, and it has become my perennial favorite to this day. Card has written the perfect book about about childhood. I have read it about one-hundred times, it is that good. I won't even begin to describe the plot. I don't want to spoil it for you, but it is a must read.
