Want To Play?

Why yes, this is a blog post about toys. Thanks for noticing. But not just any toys. Toys that I specifically played with as a kid (and loved with all my heart). I get pretty nostalgic but have an awful memory. So when I looked up “1990 toys” on Pinterest/Google, my mind exploded. I had forgotten about some of these things and had to blog about them.

  1. Rock Tumbler. I was able to take the generic, crappy rocks out of my parents’ landscaping and make them glossy. Yes please.
  2. Teddy Ruxpin. I believe he came with a tape player near his butt? I dug it.
  3. Polly Pocket. I would legitimately buy Polly Pockets today if they were as cool as they were then.
  4. Puppy Surprise! It’s how I truly understood the anatomy of animals.
  5. Littlest Pet Shop. I loved my toys to have toys. And accessories. So Littlest Pet Shop was my jam.
  6. Tamagotchi! I also had a Nano Pet but I loved my Tamagotchi more. (Don’t tell!)
  7. Necklaces that were also filled with bubbles. Obviously.
  8. Those sticky hands that we’d fling onto the wall and ceiling ultimately making our mom so mad.

What were your favorite toys?
