Last week I was talking with some friends and brought up one of my absolute favourite toys as a kid only to find out that they had never heard of it!
I was floored but it gave me the idea for today’s post!
Favourite Childhood toys from the 80s/90s
Being born in the late 80s I’m still an 80s child but I grew up in the 90’s so my list had to be a mix.
- Lite Brite
I am 90% sure we still have this at the cottage…I am still finding those bright pegs.
2. Puppy Surprise
This is the toy my friends hadn’t heard of and in the photo below you can see how proud I am to have gotten it for Christmas. I loved this stuffed animal and all her secret puppies.
3. Devil sticks
These weapons were beyond fun and also banned from my elementary school because people were sword fighting and ‘throwing them too high’…. uh isn’t that the point of them?!
These were like currency in most schools, and your world was over if you lost your slammer.
5. This recorder was awesome; I could put in a blank cassette and record my own voice or amplify my beautiful voice while I sing a long to one of my Raffi tapes.
I remember the day Niamho was born I brought this to the hospital to give to the new baby as a present and it was “accidentally” left behind. I think my parents were smart by “forgetting ” a microphoned toy with the new baby.
I loved these toys! Comment below and tell me what your favourite toy as a child was!
