I myself wanted one of those remote controlled air planes. I thought that’s the coolest thing ever. Once I grew up and had the money, I never bought it.

    I wanted a Tyco RC car as a kid. My parents actually got it for me after waiting nearly a whole year for my birthday, and it was one of the most expensive birthday gifts I’d ever received.

    Turns out it uses a proprietary battery that wasn’t even included in the package! We’d have to go out and buy that separately, which made the thing like 50% more expensive.

    We couldn’t afford that so I agreed to return the RC car and pick something else.

    I’ve decided to boycott them for life. Stupid Tyco for running my birthday with a stupid toy that doesn’t even include the battery.
