Toys you had when you were a kid

Recommended Posts

Well Christmas is almost upon us and we get tons of toy and game ads. Made me wonder about toys when i was a kid. (the thread by Internetchick made me think of this) Why don't you bring up some of yours!

 

the legos were already mentioned. and lets see there are still lincoln logs, but have you seen an erector set?

when i was little had the GI Joe but he always hung out with Daniel Boone for some reason. I liked the TV show so i even had the coonskin cap and the fake rifle. (no big worries about toy guns then)

and i only mention the last one, Girder and Panel because original sets are selling for hundreds of dollars. crazy!

and this too. this is one of the first James Bond 007 Aston Martin cars with all the gadjets, hubcab spinners, machine gun etc. I remember getting that one Christmas and recently saw one like it on eBay for over $500!

So do you have any toys you fondly remember from you childhood?

Magnadoodle! I remember going through so many of them because me and my brother would be so careless and always step on them breaking the screen.

I can't find the original one but this is good enough.

Shaker Makers! Again, this is obviously a newer version but I had one with cats. It gave you a powder and you mix it with water to form a liquid and you put it in the mould and shake it or something and allow it to dry and then you could paint them after.

Polly Pockets. Self explanatory. None of the houses and add-ons they sell now.

And then those usual dolls that you can feel them and then you would have to burp it.

 

 

A lot of the times Christmas would consist of my brother getting a new video game for his N64 and then us spending the morning playing it!

product_image.php?imageid=981i had a wooden train set that i sadly played with untill i was like ten

6670.jpg my brother had a creepy crawlers, and i had an easy bake oven but we both used his creepy crawler machine more often.

5733.jpgwe always played with tinker toys, but i remember my brother would always steal all the conector pieces and only leave me with one or two so my creations were usually kinda pathetic

t_6091.jpg

yup me and my brother had one of thsee... except that ours was broken and one of the heads would pop up if you got to into the game.

 

i had really pathetic toys actually cause i grew up in the 90's

 

137988-furby.jpgi had a furbie too... and it scared the crap out of me, and the only person who could get it to shut up was my brother. and it would wake me up in the middle of the night even though i would turn it to face the wall, it would start talking. i do not know why i liked that thing so much

I totally remember the kissing Barbie! We had the Barbie camper van- and just about every Barbie (we are 4 girls)

My favorite Barbie was Magic Moves, she used to raise her arms up and down like she was modeling.

 

My Cabbage Patch Kid that I also got when the craze hit, she was a baldy with pink & white pj's and her name was Christina Doreen.

 

I also loved our Atari 2600 and Clue board game.

OMG I completely forgot about Lisa Frank Stickers, man I used to be obsessed with those things.

 

I remember the Furby but it scared me as well. I had the Little Ponies, the gloworm, the Casio magic diary, and I was crazy about the Giga Pets, I think that's what they were called. They're like tamagotchi but I can't remember how many times it sick on me lol

What a cute thread! I had some typical 80's stuff that the others have already mentioned; like Rainbow Brite, My Little Pony, and Care Bears toys. But, I had more action figures than anything.

OMG, we were so poor growing up we never really had toys...but it make me extremely crafty! The best toy I ever had was this ginormous doll house I built out of old boxes. I used wrapping paper inside for wall paper, I cut old towels to make carpeting, I painted little pictures for the walls, I used sponges to make bed and sofas, I made fake plants out of old film canisters, playdough, and yarn, and I even saved old toothpaste caps and bottle caps for dishes. It took a good year to finish but I loved that thing and I played with it everyday!

 

I also took some old boxes, drew little squares on them, painted them bright colors and pretended they were makeup compacts. A glimpse of things to come, perhaps?? biggrin.gif My mom used to argue with me that no one would wear bright blue and yellow eyeshadow but after ten years or so I proved her wrong. smile.gif

Cool thread!

 

Furbies: They were really popular when I was younger. Personally they scared the crap out of me.

OMG Rosie I loved Duke Nukum!!! lol!!

 

And I was also a huge avid collector of Lisa frank, barbies (I also had the baywatch barbie...still have the dolphin!! lol) , My lil ponies, goosebump. I had the gloworm (think I still have it), a tamagotchi, Mr Potato head, and the creepy crawlers. I also had a posessed furby that woke up in the middle of the night.

 

Somehow I got really lucky cause we didn't have a lot of money, but there was this awesome goodwill thrift store near my grandparents house and I was able to get the coolest toys. Except for like the tamagotchi or the furby which were christmas presents and stuff.

 

Here's some of the stuff I liked that hasn't been mentioned yet:
