Toys That Need a Rebirth

4 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

This blogger obviously was born around 1980. His top 5 "toys that need a rebirth" were big in the 1980s.

I'm more of a 1970s boy, myself, but am blanking on the toys I most loved. I did love the sit-n-spin, mentioned in the comments (who knew there was one for adults?), but other than that, I can think only of the Odyssey video game system and, well, "Choose Your Own Adventure" books, which weren't toys. I caught the Rubiks Cube wave, but was never any good at it.

For "Games" lurkers feeling betrayed by this post about toys: I put it here because I think of Rubiks Cube as "game"-ish. It's a puzzle -- somewhere between a game and a toy, I guess. I can move the thread to "Catch-All" if regular "Games" participants are outraged.

I spent hours with these... In fact, it was disappointing when the Star Wars toys came out, because the articulation and variety didn't come close to matching the Micronauts.

I'm a 1970s boy too. And Stretch Armstrong was the coolest toy ever.
