    Favorite Toys

    We've been shopping for toys for my daughter and it made me nostalgic for toys from my childhood. Some of my favorite toys when I was younger (at least before PONG and Atari ) were:

    Toss Across (This was a TIC-TAC-TOE board. You would use bean bags to get the X's and O's to turn over)
    Hungry, Hungry Hippo
    Dukes of Hazard Slot Cars
    Twister
    Lincoln Logs
    Light Bright
    View Master

    I also was a girlie-girl and liked dolls, Barbies, etc. Strawberry Shortcake, My Pretty Ponies, and Glamour Girls were just a few.

    So, what were *your* favorite toys when you were little? I know I'll think of a thousand more, but I'm curious as to what everyone else remembers fondly

    Toss across!!! OMG I loved Toss Across!

    And hungry hungry hippos! Oh, and Lite Brite!!!!!

    at Dukes of Hazard! A lot of my family lives in Conyers, GA where it was filmed. I used to love that show!

    Okay, on thread (now that I'm almost teary from reminiscing):
    Lite Brite


    Chutes and Ladders


    Candyland


    LIFE


    Tinkertoys


    Anything and everything He-Man or ThunderCats



    Those little 45s you used to read along to books with (I remember Disney's, Flintstones, and good ol' ST)




    Great thread, SG!

    My daughter is your age star and I bought her a Strawberry Shortcake lunch box and doll this past year.
    I also have a SS glass from when she was a kid I'm giving her when her first child is born.

    I absolutely loved my Easy Bake oven....I kept my little brother well fed!

    My other favorites were:

    Lincoln logs
    Legos
    Tinkertoys
    Lite Brite
    my Barbie/Skipper dolls
    lots of matchbox cars
    and Rock em Sock em Robots (I think that's what they were called!)

    I seemed to like a lot of "boy" toys, LOL.

    Oh, you guys are bringing back even more great memories
    I *loved* my Easy Bake Oven, Tinkertoys, and Operation.

    I also had a remote control Batmobile and tons of Star Wars stuff.

    BTW- My Mom sold most of my Star Wars stuff in a yard sale once when I was at a summer thing. :mad: It would be worth a good deal of money today.

    Ohhhh, I so wanted a Lite Brite when I was little...my mom thought it was too dangerous but she was OK with the Easy-Bake...

    And I still have my Superstar Barbie and a Barbie van, which is yellow vinyl with all these groovy orange swirly things on it - oh, the '70's...

    I remember playing Toss Across at birthday parties!

    My 4-year-old has a Hungry Hungry Hippos game but very quickly managed to break one of the hippos. She also has a Candyland game which she makes me play EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!! (at least 3 games at a time!!)

    And Silly Putty, we thought it was so cool that you could smush it on the Saturday comics from the newspaper and it would pick up the picture.

    One more, just because the preschool has one - those Viewfinder thingies that you put a disk with slide pictures in and hold it up to the light to see the pics? All of us parents were playing with it the other day - hey, someone has to show the kids how to use it
