I had a Fischer Price or Playskool McDonald's. It was like the Fischer Price Little People set, like the house or the barn or the school, though I think the people were more square shaped than rounded. It sat on a mat that was the parking lot, with a play land or whatever you called it off to the side with the French Fry Guys and a merry go round thingee. It had the drive-thru painted on the mat, so you positioned the building just right. The people had areas under their chins where you could attach the trays of food. It came with a couple of families and a couple of cars and some employees. Don't remember what else.
I forgot all about that McDonald's playset! If I remember correctly, there was a slot in the wall to put trays through and the cash register would make a little bell sound if you pushed on it.
My favorite toys were:
Spiderman Web-shooter (1975)
I remember getting this at a local grocery store, Fazios, and they had them in the checkout aisles. My dad let my brother and I each get one and all I could think about on the way home was how I was going to shoot my web at the peak of the house and swing from the front yard to the back yard. After all, it came with 6 feet of string! It actually shot about 2 feet out and wouldn't stick to glue. I still liked to play with it though.
Secret Sam Super Spy Set (1965)
Got this at a garage sale for $3 when I was 9 or 10. It didn't have the bullets that shot out, but everything else was there. It was a plastic briefcase with parts of a gun, spy camera, and a little periscope. You could assemble the gun like a sniper...I mean, spy, and it also had a little camera that could take pictures when the storage case was closed.
Battlestar Galactica Space Station (1978)
I got this from sending in box tops from Crazy Cow cereal (loved that stuff!). It was just a cardboard cockpit of a space ship, but I would play with this a lot.
It's weird that I can remember how and where I got these toys as a kid, because now I have trouble remembering what I had for dinner the night before.
