Whether you were a toddler, teen, or parent, reminiscing about these years is always fun. What better way to celebrate the 80s than to go back down memory lane with a list of the 20 Most Popular Toys from the 80s!
You can always spot a parent around the holiday season. Their hair is a frazzled mesh of cow licks and stray strands as if it’s been pulled by a crowd of frantic people. Their eyes dart around in all directions desperately seeking something that could suddenly appear at a moment’s notice. They break down and cry during commercials that advertise “the hottest toy of the holiday season.”
A warning for parents as you head out Black Friday shopping. Toxic and dangerous toys are sitting on New Jersey store shelves, according to New Jersey Public Interest Research Group's 27th annual Trouble in Toyland report.
There were many cool inventions that came out of the 80s. From pop culture to technology, music to toys. While my list of 5 may not have shaped the world, they are some awesome flashbacks that brought back a lot of memories.
We parents have all been there. Christmas morning toy explosion takes over the whole house. Children are insanely happy. Everything is their favorite. "Open this, open this one." Fast forward 6 weeks. At least half of what you've spent way too much on to begin with sits abandoned like some compromised freak on the Island Of Misfit Toys.
On the show today we talked about old toys that we used to play with when we were young that would never be made available to kids now-a-days. You don't see toys such as Clackers, Lawn Darts, and Creepy Crawlers anymore.
