34 Toys We All Had As Kids

34 Toys We All Had As Kids relateable lists buzzfeed

I wish I could be a kid again. No worries, no deadlines, no cares in the world. You come home from school, have no commitments, so what do you do? Play with your toys of course! I had a lot of toys as a kid, most of which have been thrown out now, but the memories I still hold close to my heart. As a kid who grew up in the early 2000s, I didn't have the internet like it is today. I wasn't given a phone and told to entertain myself for hours on end. I was given toys that made me use my own imagination.

When I was contacted by, an online marketplace that helps to connect people around the world with the items they love, got in touch he suggested that I should share with you some of my favourite, nostalgic items from my childhood. You guys know that I did a post a couple of months back, sharing 18 Things Kids From The Noughties Will Remember , However, I appreciate that not everyone who reads my blog grew up during that time. So I thought today, I would share will you 34 toys that we all probably had growing up as kids, no matter what decade we grew up in! I hope it makes you feel very nostalgic.

    1. Yay! Puppet theatres and mod rock were great though

  8. I use to love kerplunk! We never had bop it xx

  9. I actually hated barbies, I was more of a lego & toy cars kid :) I guess that's because I have an older brother so I was always playing with him and used his toys & therefore I was a bit of a tomboy x

    Sara / AboutLittleThiings

    1. aw, that's really cute! I used to chew the feet of my barbies if that is any consolation :D

  10. Well now they are all a blast from the past. Particularly for me, I had Kerplunk, I used to love that, that magnetic fishing game, barbies, fuzzy felt, lego, and I had an amazing puppet theatre. I used to have roller blades too x



    1. I had a pair of roller blades but I could never use them without falling over so I gave up :(

  11. I think I quite literally had all of these!

    1. Kids these days, are definitely missing out on the good old days haha x

  13. Kids really love these things and I really got my older memories after reading this useful blog. Online Shopping

  14. That does seem that we all want to come back to the childhood, the time we're naif and thoughtless. When I saw my nephew Thoeurn Sovann enjoying on the baby jumper, I thought what if I was on it, was it really that fun? and Bang, the thought passed. Childhood is really the best time of all human being.
