….and the ones that we remember fondly, that are no more.
80s & 90s toys that are still going strong
She may have had different fashion styles over the years, but our favourite doll is still as popular as ever. Oh the hours of fun we had!
I hope Lego never goes out of style. Lego has changed over the years, with the introduction of Lego Friends and more movie and character tie-in sets but the basic bricks are still around if you want them, and there are so many creative ways to play.
My Little Pony
My Little Pony has changed style over the years too but is just as popular as ever. We love the plush My Little Ponys that you can get nowadays, I would have been desperate for one of those as a kid. I did have this though…
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
I remember waking up early to watch TMNT. Those turtles were always the coolest, and 15 years later my kids think so too!
The sweetest toys of the 80s and 90s; the Care Bears have had a recent come back. We have one of the new ones and he is super cute!
Mr Potato Head
Kept popular due to his appearance in Toy Story 1, 2 and 3 – Mr Potato Head has remained a classic for many years
Whether shop bought or home made, playdough is forever a favourite with kids. New varieties come and go (kinetic sand is currently a popular one), but whatever form it takes – mouldable dough is a children’s classic.
The ones we dearly miss
My favourite 80s toy! I was excited to see them reintroduced in the 00s, but the new design was a little creepy – in the form of a “tell me your secrets popple” with a recording device included inside.
Ugly in the cutest way. Trolls of all sizes were awesome, especially the pencil toppers.
These are still around, but not so commonly seen. The simple Koosh Ball was so much fun!
Does anyone even remember how to play this? All I know is you had a stack of pogs and a slammer, and the shiny pogs were a thing of envy
A doll that turned into a cake, and was scented. Kids of today are missing out on these!
A few 90s toys trends that are best left in the past
Let’s face it, they didn’t really do much!
Rip their stomach open, and find out how many puppies are inside! Just a little weird.
They were cute, but what was with the whole “tag protector” thing?
