    He sounds to be near my age. When I was young, I really liked Matchbox
    Cars, and Tonka trucks and cars. Viewmasters, too.

    At one point, I had a toy VW Van, like the "hippies" supposedly had, but I don't know who made it or whatever happened to it. IIRC, it was plastic.
    I had a metal VW bug, too. I think it may have been a Tonka toy.

    digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

    Well, my Dad's Birthday is in July and Father's Day (in Ireland) is
    next month so I am searching for ideas on what to get him! Last year I bought him a toy tank (from the 70s) and 2 casettes (our car has a tape deck).

    He is in his 50s now so I try to buy him things that are more from the 70s/80s or that he once had/like (in this case the artists who made
    those casettes!

    So, I suppose I am asking in a slightly rambling way, if you guys have
    any suggestions? Since I was born in 1999 I can only really think about the stuff that was popular in the 2000s and 2010s and anything really
    in the 90s and older is hard for me to get (especially in the realm of more non famous/ordinary things like toys and cultural aspects that haven't continued into the current era (such as Star Wars and the
    like). If you're wondering wh ythe tank, it was because it still had
    its original box in perfect condition and the old logo was also part of the nostalgia that made me decide to buy it for him.

    What is his favorite band? Maybe get an old vinyl LP and make a clock from
    it? You can usually get 'clock hands' at (here in the states) Hobby Lobby
    or Michaels...
