This is such a classic and will completely take you back in time.  We love that it’s simple and doesn’t need any batteries. And it’s still exactly unchanged from back in the day.

We didn’t remember how much work this one is! Once you’ve put the ice in, you have to manually turn it. Upside: It’s a great workout!

The new ones look a little more space-age than the ones from the 80s, but it still makes the same tiny, questionably delicious cakes and cookies.  The only bummer is with the redesign, you can’t see what’s cooking. That was half the thrill, wasn’t it?

Hippity Hops

This was our main form of transportation growing up. Bouncing around on a ball just never gets old.

The toy is the exact same as back in the day – and we say, if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!  This thing was one of our favorite toys back then, and our kids still love it now.

Seriously, Simon requires some real concentration! Just as good a brain exercise as doing the New York Times Magazine crossword puzzle.

These are also known as anxiety-inducing games. But that’s half the fun, right?! We think people with smaller hands have an advantage…

If your kids don’t have a set… it’s time. We wish you could build other things, though; a person can build only so many log cabins!

Hope you enjoyed this stroll down memory lane! Hope your kids love these toys as much as ours do!
