Man, you got me there. I have several display cases in my man-cave holding, among other things, toys from my youth. In the '50s we all had cap guns; that's a Mattel Shoot'n Shell revolver behind the TOS phaser. As a kid I was mad for Walkie Talkies; the thing in the back is a '50s toy, the rest are real from the '60s and early '70s (except the TOS communicator, of course). I don't know if it counts as "childhood" since I was a teenager, but I have some Man From Uncle stuff including an original Uncle gun, an original ID card and badge, and a replica cigarette case communicator.
