The Albany All Stars are throwing down with the BC Rollers' Parlor City Tricks this Saturday in a roller derby bout at the Washington Ave Armory. We have three pairs of tickets -- and we'd like to give them away. We might even give them to you.

The theme for this bout is "Babes in Toyland." So, to enter the drawing, please answer this question in the comments:

We'll draw three winners at random.

The first whistle in the roller derby bout is 7 pm (doors at 6 pm). Tickets are $10 ahead / $12 at the door. Music by the Deadbeats.

To go along with the "Babes in Toyland" theme, they'll also be collecting new, unwrapped toys for Toys for Tots at the door.

The winners will be notified via email by 10 am on Friday and must respond by 5 pm that day.

Yep, AOA is a media sponsor of AASRD.

Legos, by far

The Interchangeable World of the Micronauts!

I loved this old stuffed dog. Really shaggy like the dog from sesame street

She-ra of course. She was badass and lived in a huge pink castle. I brought her everywhere.

Barbies. Specifically, Barbie and the Rockers. Derrick was just so handsome!

Legos were great fun.

That is except for that time when I was 5 and got one lodged so far up my nose that I had to go to the doctor's office. After that, all I stuck up my nose were my fingers and the occasional penny.

Legos were tough to beat... but Optimus Prime was pretty awesome.

My Little Ponies...and the hundreds of stuffed animals I had. No, really, there were hundreds.

Play-Doh!! Way better than legos (sorry guys!)

transformers.

Babysitter's Club dolls! Seems random but my mom would make clothes for them so they had costumes that matched mine at Halloween, etc. Plus I loved the books so they were great!

I had a fabulous doll that giggled when you pulled her arms together and again when pulled back. My dear, dear younger brothers thought it would be great to find out exactly how far back her arms would go. Well, they found out, and I never had Giggles again [she got thrown into a near-by swamp when my bros couldn't fix the problem]. Needless to say, they're both engineers now: figuring out exactly how far back or forward other things move. ;o)

Lincoln Logs

Sin 'N Spin anyone? I'm supprised those were never recalled. Side effects were possible brain damage and guaranteed nausea, but it provided hours of fun.

My Jessica baby doll. She had hair that changed color in water. She also had an awesome name. =)

I had a lot of favorite toys, but my favorite was probably MicroMachines (and other car toys). I remember always setting them up with the sick buildings my parents would get me (this is one my favorites: http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcRW1QEnF6nJDffnu4uV_hpvURSLNC65dzFeNt5ZxLy7pOZS7nVPbw). And I love AARD, Explosive Daria rocks!

Brio Trains

Big pile of dirt in the back yard.

Legos or Barbies.... depending on the day

Teddy Ruxbin was and forever will be my best friend

My favorite toy when I was a kid was an awesome "old school" toboggan and our sleds with the metal runners. :)

Stuffed lion named Boniface. I used him as a travel pillow too.

Kerplunk, Sorry, and other like games.

The game Guess Who

Lite Brite or Barbies.

My favorite toys growing up have revolved around robots. It all started with the power rangers megazord and from there evolved to transformers. It really took off with beastwars though. I adored my megatron T-Rex. It was the super robot dinosaur toy

My AT-AT walker with the guns that moved and lit up.

Loved legos! And those little green army men

LEGO bricks
+
Matchbox and Hot Wheels
Army Men
Star Wars action figures (the originals)
G.I. Joe Action Figures
He-Man Action Figures
