Toys I Loved As A Child


Toys I Loved As A Child

  • 26 Pins

Wanted this as a child - finally got it as an adult. It is still funny to play.

I had one like it - it was one of my first toys.

The one I had as a kid is still at my parents' house.

I always wanted one of these surreys. I recently saw one at an antique store, but it wasn't for sale.

I had one of these when I was very little. My parents still have it at their house.

My first Ken doll looked like this. Fortunately, I was too young to ask my parents any questions about his lack of physical correctness.

My first Barbie was like this, only with red hair.

Another game I wanted, but never got.

This made edible "candy" bugs, in flavors like butterscotch, licorice and rootbeer. The goop actually tasted better than the finished products.

    I had that & loved it!!!!

Two-headed troll.

I had one as a kid - wish I had it now, as they are pretty rare.

You could change the hair on this Barbie. My favorite was the blonde one.

There is nothing like the smell of a Barbie case.

Casey was Barbie's friend. She was ahead of her time, with only one earring.

I had the Jan doll and my sister had a Heidi.

Tressy had a strand of hair on the top of her head that would "grow" if you pushed a button on her abdomen. She also came with a marker that you could use to "color" her hair, which was washable.

    My sister still has her Tressy!

A toy that used a Thingmaker and Plastigoop to make ugly little people.

The "Thing Maker" got really hot, and the Plastigoop was stinky, but it was fun to make bugs.

I wanted this game as a kid, but never got it. Finally got one as an adult.

I always wanted this game. Finally got one as an adult.

Etch-A-Sketch - not really that fun because it only made straight lines.

My cousin and I called this game, "Monotonous", and we stayed up all night playing it.

It had a light-bulb inside that baked the cakes.

One of my friends had this game

Booby Trap - fun family game
