One of the best things about being a kid was opening up presents on holidays and birthdays and finding toys. But not just any toys. Star Wars toys.

We're not the only ones who feel the same way. Flickr has an entire set of old photos dedicated to those captured moments of joy, called "Growing Up Star Wars." GUSW also has images of children in costumes or T-shirts, and even some youthful artwork. Some of these pics are funny, some are poignant and all of them are Star Wars-y fabulous.

We bet there will never be a site like this for people and their Twilight toys.

Check it out.
