Almost every toy made today features some kind of technology. Stuffed animals, books, cars…you name it, they’ve added sound and a screen to it. And although one of my favorite toys from back in the day had a screen, many of my favorites were simple. They required your own imagination to make the toys come to life.
Like this Fisher Price garage.
Or who could forget Rainbow Brite?
Or there were toys that forced you to get outside and play. Like the Big Wheel.
Or these roller skates.
Or climbing trees.
But my favorite toy of them all is one I still have today. If you have coulrophobia–that is, the fear of clowns–you may want to stop scrolling now. In fact, I totally understand. People dressed as clowns freak me out, but not my Clownie.
What were your favorite childhood toys?
