Old Fashioned Toys and Games
Remember the Toys and Games You Grew Up Playing With?
Kids are still kids and they love toys and games. Remember playing Sorry? Remember sending your Slinky down the steps? How about playing outside with ring toss or your balsa wood airplane glider?
Best of all, do you remember building endless things with Tinker Toys, Legos and Lincoln Logs?
I do! There are so many great memories of my childhood playing with these classic toys and many more. No batteries, no computers, no electricity needed, just imagination and time for fun! Do you have a child or grandchild that you think would love these toys and games as much as you did?
They are STILL AVAILABLE! All your old favorites you will find below. They make great holiday gifts and are a lot less expensive than those $50 video games that only teach a child to sit indoors staring at a screen. If you love your child, give them something that promotes play, both alone and with others, doing activities and not sitting and staring at a monitor.

Still Fun After All These Years
I remember me and my friends crouched around these games as we played them on the porch. So much fun and great memories in these games. Help the next generation have those same wonderful childhood times!
Classic Wall Games
Just Hang and Get Ready for Fun!
These are the real thing, meaning sharp darts and pins, so you will need to supervise children using them. Great games for kids or adults!

Mr. Potato Head was invented in 1952
and you had to supply a real potato for his body!
Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head
Yes, They Are Still Around!
Mr. Potato Head is a very popular guy! He has been in constant production since Hasbro first manufactured the first one in 1952. He also holds the honor of being the very first toy to be advertised on television! Don’t let the next generation grow up without this veggie friend!

These handheld games are the precursor to todays hand held video games. The big difference is there are no batteries required. These games are hand and water powered and are great to improve coordination.

Kids Love to Play Dress Up!
Paper dolls have been around for hundreds, perhaps even thousands of years. They have delighted children of all ages for all these years. Keep the tradition alive with this simple and fun toy.

I remember playing with these games as a child, and having such fun with my friends! They also make great party games!
Classic Building Toy Sets
Kids Still Love Them!
Tinker toys were, without a doubt my favorite toy when I was growing up. I used them so much that I wore the ends off some of the wooden sticks. I loved building things with them and I even used them to build furniture for my dolls! Give your favorite child a box of these and they will be endlessly entertained!
Vintage Board Games
Board games were some of my favorite things when I was a child. My siblings and I would have tournaments! I think that Trouble was probably my favorite game. We played it so often that we wore out the pop-o-matic, and we had to get a new game! These make great gifts for the whole family!
