What Childhood Toy Did You Want But Never Receive?

I was super fortunate that I didn’t get denied many things that I really really wanted, as long as they weren’t a nuisance for my parents. And “nuisance" = big mess, hassle, loud, etc… so I never got an Easy-Bake Oven. I, like, still want to play with the one I got for my nephew for Christmas, but that made such a giant sticky mess that I 100% let go of any residual resentment I unfairly held over not getting one.
