15 Toys You Loved As A Kid But Then Completely Forgot Existed

- Page 1

The best thing about being a kid is that you have roughly zero responsibilities. Sure, you need to go to school, but honestly that's pretty simple.

The only thing that we really cared about was playing with our toys. You might think that because our only concern was those wonderful toys, that we would remember them all, but that's where you're wrong.

Our brains have been filled with useless and boring facts like how to file our taxes and how to pay our bills, so all of our favorite toys have slipped away. But don't worry, we've got you covered.

Sure, you've forgotten a lot, but we can remind you! All your favorite toys are distant memories, and we're going to help you remember them.

Who's ready to revisit all those childhood toys they forgot?

1. Weebles

"Weebles wobble but they don't fall down!" Does it suddenly ring a bell? These little round-bottomed toys were adorable little buddies that would perfectly sit into the Weebles play sets that we all had.

2. Fashion Plates

We may not have been able to decide on which clothes our moms would buy for us, but we could design our own clothes using fashion plates. Mix and match all the plates to create your perfect outfit, and dream of the day when you would have a reason to wear it.

3. Pet Rocks

The genius inventor of this toy managed to create the perfect obsession for kids. They felt like they had a pet, but they didn't have to worry about feeding it or taking it for walks. It was the best option for the parents and the kid, and probably a lot of animals who didn't have to get annoyed by kids all the time.

It's literally just a rock though, that's the thing. There's nothing super special about it, but for some reason it was a huge hit!

4. Raggedy Ann & Andy

There is something so sweet about these little dolls. They lasted for generations and while they had a few changes over the years, they always kept their iconic look in some way. That red hair is pretty one-of-a-kind, and they just wouldn't be the same without those stripey socks!

5. Jacks

Jacks has had a lot of names over the years, and a lot of different rules, but no matter how you played it or what you called it, it was strangely addictive. You probably haven't thought about the cumulative hours you spent sitting cross-legged on the playground in a circle with all your friends grabbing little plastic pieces off the ground in a while have you?

How have you been doing so far? Remember them all? There's still more to come...

10 Iconic Toys From Your Childhood That You Couldn't Live Without

Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much


13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who


Fireball Island Is Coming Back, And It's Bigger And Better Than Ever Before

We all became completely obsessed with the board game Fireball Island when we were kids. The game has become one of those relics from our past that is now worth a good chunk of change. The board game itself is listed for hundreds of dollars online and while I love the game, I don't know that I could justify paying that much for it.I mean, it's a classic, but I just can't justify it. Luckily for me, I won't have to. Because even though we all complain that everything old comes back, this time it's actually a good thing.
