WE ASKED OUR CONTRIBUTORS: With the
holiday shopping season upon us, what's
the best gift you received as a child?

Greg Lotko: Either my Hess firetruck
with working siren and lights when I
was almost 4, the Tyco slot cars I got
at around 6 or 7, or the felt Pittsburgh
Steelers jacket when I was 8.
Lisa Stefan: A 1982
Frogger mini-arcade video
game. I still have it.

TECHNICAL EDITORS

Don Resnik: My first new red bike
with training wheels. I still remember at
5 years old, going out and sitting on it,
and I was amazed that it was mine.
Bob Rogers: Stereophonic
record player.

Bea Jager: My twin
brother and I received
matching hot red Huffy
bicycles. Loved those bikes.

Linda Holm: KerPlunk.
