Take a stroll down memory lane with me! I recently discovered how magnificent it is to live in an era where I am able to find and order for my toddler just about the same exact toys I loved as a child. How could Hampton make it through preschool without properly being introduced to a crew of Sea Monkeys or growing his very own Chia Pet? They just don’t make toys like they used to! I rounded up eleven toys that gave me all the throwback feels and are still availible today.

Chi-Chi-Chi-CHIA! The commericals are just as nostaglic as the pet itself. This is the perfect plant that kids will love to watch grow and it’s 2020, so the selection of designs are impressive!
Sea Monkeys or Aqua Dragons are the perfect almost instant pet that requires little to no maintenance. Casually known as “brine shrimp”, I have to admit it still is rather dazzling watching the little shrimp swim around in a fun aquatic habitat.
“Skip-It” WITH Counter Hopper
The Counter Hopper by Maui Toys is baically “Skip-It’s” long lost twin. Sure you can find A LOT of similar products online but it’s only legit if it also fetaures a counter hopper! I also linked the counter hopper hula hoop because WHY NOT?!
Walkie Talkies made the ole two cups connected with a string a communiation form of the past! Walkie Talkies were a fun, static filled way of communcating with friends…even if it was just a few feet away at the playground.
It is as basic as it sounds and I LOVED it! Transform any living room into a ribbon dancing arena and let your or your little one’s imagination go wild!
Talk about an adrenaline rush! I loved playing Crocodile Dentist with my neighborhood friends and the stress free clean up made it perfect to play anytime!
Rainbow Art Set
I remember watching this commerical and thinking it was TOO good to be true! Now as an adult, I see the magic of shaped sponge brushes and perfectly aligned paint colors. I also linked Magic Pens because everyone needs to experience these color changing pens just once!
Turn on the magic of Lite-Brite! The best feeling was turning off the lights to watch your masterpiece light up the entire room! Adult supervision is a MUST with little ones when playing with this product due to the small parts.
The Orginial Virtual Reality Pet of the 90’s is back and IN COLOR! Yes, there is a new and improved version of this nostaglic toy too!
Doodle Bear is basically an art easel in teddy bear form. Take this teddy anywhere you go and when you run out of room for doodling, simply toss Doodle Bear in the washing machine. Allow Doodle Bear to dry and repeat as many times as you want! Also availible in Doodle Chihuaha!
Bedtime will never be the same with Glo Worm! I’m not sure what is so appaealing about this bug-eyed glowing musical worm but 2 year old Brittany found Glo Worm irresistible. There is also a miniature version availible too!
