Do you own a gun?
No.


That makes me suspect that the set of questions originated in the US.

Best toy as a child?
Dan Dare space communications centre.


It was the Dan Dare strip that first got me interested in SF in the late 1950s, but sadly I was never given a space communications centre.

Wow! I don't remember ever seeing this advertised in the Eagle or elsewhere. If I had, I'm sure that I would have wanted one - though my parents probably wouldn't have been able to afford to buy it for me anyway, as money was tight when I was a child.

It wasn't really a radio, it was a wired phone thingy, with a morse key and the option to use a flashing light instead of a phone signal.
