What was the one toy you wanted as a kid that your parents never bought you?

Growing up, I wanted to have some talent, any talent, and I thought my hidden talent was music. (I was wrong, by the way, I'm still looking for my super special hidden talent.)
One year, I asked for a keyboard and I received it. I already had some piano lessons behind me so I thought this would be perfect. Wrong.
As my keyboard sat collecting dust under my bed, the next Christmas rolled around. I asked for an electirc guitar. Mom and Dad were along for the ride and our neighbor played the guitar so they figured I might pick something up. Wrong.
In the third straight year of musical instruments, with my blossoming band under my bed, I asked for a drum set. I didn't think it was out of the realm of possiblities. That was a disappointing Christmas.
I later came to find out that our neighbors had really put the threat on my parents. I think they said they weren't going to speak to them any more if they moved forward with the drum set. I don't think that my parents wanted to hear the noise anyways. Good call Mom and Dad.
