More Cool Childhood Toys

Simple...yes but a certified classic that actually takes some skill to master. On long bus or car rides I always had them with me as a kid. It took extra skill to link all the monkies together while driving over bumpy roads or while trying to drink root beer out of the large glass A&W jug. The two aren't related of course but everytime I think of Barrel of Monkeys I thing of jugged root beer from A&W. But it had to come from the drive-in A&Ws where they balanced the trays on your car windows and the girls wore roller skates. I really grew up in a much simpler time. Too late for Playstation or X-box but just right for computers and the internet.
