What was your favourite childhood toy? Last night Mr Hubby and I took a trip down memory lane, trying to recall all our favourite toys from our youth. It was prompted by looking at this great site from Oxford Open Learning highlighting toys, fads and crazes of days gone by.
I collaborated with Mr Hubby, to get a balanced view and here are our top ten picks.
Cabbage Patch Kids
My Little Pony
Sindy & Barbie
I loved my Care Bear! Do you remember Cheer Bear, Wish Bear and Grumpy Bear? With their belly badges giving them the power of the Care Bear Stare when they stood together, spreading happiness. I used to watch the Care Bear programme too.
Sinclair ZX Spectrum
Both Mr Hubby and I had one of these bad boys. Games were loaded from an external tape recorder and if the volume wasn’t set exactly right they wouldn’t load. Mr Hubby apparently used to spend hours playing with his Jet Set Willy!
Panini Football Stickers
Also not quite making our top ten are these little gems
So what was your favourite childhood toy or craze?
