    No. There's nothing wrong with wanting to have some fun. As long as it is in an appropriate place in the house. i.e. no slot machines in the living room.

    it depends on how much time he spends with those things, if he has children, a significant other, and if he includes them in his hobbies.

    As long as he is a good husband, let him have this innocent fun. Would you rather he was going out to bars and strip clubs? Going out all night with "the boys" playing poker and drinking? You better thank God he is as he is.

    There's an easy way to tell. Does he share it with anyone? If he has not problem with that, then no it's not childish. If he won't let anyone else touch his stuff, that's getting a bit childish.































    My own game room had a pool table. When I moved, I had to give it up.

    toys in my garage

    at 52 years old i have more toys now than when i was a younger kid. i have a commercial type slot car track that i used to race on in 1967-68. i also have different games and stereo there. this spring i am putting a digital projector in a gazeebo so i can have movie nights. Childlike keeps me in touch with my 12 year old son too. i know where he is and all of his friends like to come over to play with my toys. they often bring their dads too.:thumb: jack

    Don't worry about what others think! If you enjoy it, and it doesn't infringe on important responsibilities like feeding the family, then what can possibly be the harm?

    I think our society mistakenly undervalues "play". I don't think there is anything "childish" about it. If you look at other intelligent mammals (primates, porpoises, etc), play among adults is common, and probably an important factor in social health.

    I also think we have weird divisions of just what kind of play is "childish" versus "serious". To me, spending years of research and craftsmanship to painstakingly construct an amazingly realistic model or diorama seems much more serious than chasing after a ball, yet others would have it the opposite. Viva la difference.

    Life shouldn't be a sober, solemn march to the grave. It should be savored, enjoyed and brimming with fun! Now go play! :D

    I'm retired, 59 years old and started an N scale model railroad layout , I own a scale stationary steam engine plus a subbuteo table soccer, so the 42 years old "kid" has a lot of years ahead of him to collect more toys.
