If you’re in the mood to ride the nostalgic wave of the 80s and 90s, then you’re in for a way back playback. Toys come and go and vary throughout each decade. And maybe I’m just biased, but the toys from the 80s and 90s were just far better than the toys the “cool kids” play with today, which are solely device-based.
These toys just never seem to go out of style. Thanks to the obsession with everything retro, these toys that we may have stuffed in a cardboard box and put in the attic are actually a lot cooler than we gave them credit for. Do you have these toys in your closet?
Cabbage Patch Kids
Really, who would have ever thought that dolls that come from a Cabbage Patch would be such a hit that they would cause riots in stores? While some thought these dolls were ugly, most couldn’t get their hands on them fast enough.
Believe it or not, Cabbage Patch Kids are still available. If you want the original vintage collection, you can buy them online. There are also the new versions, but let’s face it, they’re not the same.
Remember this?! Lite-Brite gave us the power to make beautiful little pictures with pegs that lit up. This is what life was like before the internet. Remember those days? Lite-Brite kits came with patterns that children (or adults, I don’t judge) could follow to make pictures.
Or, if you were anything like me, you made your own with blank templates. And yes, there are new versions of Lite-Brite out there for purchase. Apparently, it comes with a handy dandy case for all the colored pegs. I would have loved that when I was a kid.
My Little Pony
if you have kids, then you probably know that there’s a whole new era of My Little Pony with more than one series based on these strange little pony/unicorns. But the ones from the 80s and 90s past are just far better than their digital counterparts.
The toys are still going strong more than 30 since they’ve been on store counters. Today, these little pony dolls are way more blinged out than they used to be back in our day. Still, they’re pretty cute.
