Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Not really toys but this is what I do when not flying.

I have around 2 grand tied up in them with more to come as soon as my band starts recording. They are Gretsch Catalina Ash drums. The color is called liquid black and the rims are all black nickel plated. The kit includes, 24x18 kick drum, 8, 10, 12, 13 inch rack toms, 16 inch floor tom and 14x6 ash wood snare drum. Zildjian ZBT cymbals, 20 inch ride, 14 inch high hats, 16 and 18 inch crash all to be replaced with Zildjian A customs and K custom hybrids in the not to distant future. I use a Gibraltar double pedal and Gibraltar hardware. The 2X pedal will be replaced at some point with a Pearl Demon Drive double pedal. All sitting on a Pearl ICON 3 sided rack. I only have two sides of the rack set up for now but will add the third as I get more stuff that makes noise  Cheesy

The heads are all the factory Gretsch heads but I have all new Evans Black Onyx heads ready to go on as soon as I wear out the factory ones.

Not the best photos but you get the idea.

Cool rockets. A few of my chilhood friends and their dads were into rocketry, I do not recall any of them being as big as some of the one you have but still they were always a lot of fun to watch.

I swim, rowing(Concept II rower), some weight training + Hi-End Audio(I like old jazz and classical music) if I'm not flying my F kite. Not sure if swimming, rowing, weight training counting as 'TOY' but Audio should be.

Like all other living things... not sure they are toys... but they are possibly more needy than a pet... because they won't even tell you they are hungry until they are good and ticked off.  Grin Angry Sad Huh
