I was just thinking about..

... balsa wood planes. I think they sold them for a dime back when I was little. I haven't seen one in years. These kept me occupied for hours. I wonder if they still sell them.

I think they do! I remember these as well; my brothers had one constantly around the house (getting stepped on, of course).

Definitely one of my favorite summer time toys as a kid! I have seen them in stores recently, Usually in the educational type toy stores.

I remember we used to make missiles out of the planes by taking the main wings off and just leaving the tail fin and rudders on.

Sure, these are still around. Try ACE Hardware or Michaels or any of the hobby shops. Still pretty cheap... good thing since they never lasted more than an afternoon.

If I had kids I'd check it out, but I'd feel kind of self-conscious standing in my yard playing with my balsa wood plane..
