Remember when playing meant hours on the floor or outside playing with toys that were rugged?  Every kind of toy today is tied to a movie, a show, a video game and has it's own website so that the company can make even more money by selling you something else.  Even Legos have their own action cartoon and of course a website with games.  Toys are not just toys anymore.  I wish toys were simply just toys like they used to be. 

I'm going to take a little walk down memory lane and share some of my favorite childhood toys with you.  Maybe you had some of these too?

Fisher Price Little People 


Rock'em Sock'em Robots

The game of memory, Simon
Rubiks Cube 

the Wonderful waterfuls ring-toss games


Metal Strap on roller skates


Etch A Sketch (you could never get the picture you wanted to turn out right)

Monopoly (my brother and I would play the same game for days)
