Gift Guide: 36 Retro Toys to LOVE all over again!

Doesn’t it seem like the toys we played with when we were a kid were SO MUCH COOLER???  I know, it probably has a lot to do with the childhood memories that are linked with those toys…..but I also think the toy industry had to work a lot harder to make an entertaining toy because technology wasn’t as advanced.  I had so much fun looking for all these old retro toys that I remember owning (or wanting) and finding that some are actually still available!!!

Wouldn’t it be fun to re-introduce some of these retro toys to your own children?  OR, it would also be really fun to give one of these toys to a grown-up who grew up with these toys! Just think of the memory lane your recipient would travel. So fun. :)

***If you click on the name of the toy listed above each picture, it will link you over to see more information about the toy, to read reviews, availability, etc.
