Popular Toys and Games from the 1970s and 1980s
A trip down Toyland Memory Lane. Remember these? I played with the ’70’s toys, and remember the younger kids playing with the ’80’s toys while I discovered video games. Frogger was my favorite. I never did get into Pac Man nor Mario Brothers, though.
LOVED my Clackers. I remember the rumors about these shatter and putting kids eyes out.
I had this handheld football game. I thought I was the shit back then!
This was the popular choice when we had free time in school
LOVED my Silly Putty!
Electronic games were my favorites.
When I was very young, the popping noise didn’t bother me in the least. But when I was older and around the young children playing Trouble, that very same noise would drive me insane!
I solved Rubik’s Cube!!!
Retro Commercial for the Cabbage Patch Kids.
I do not remember this commercial. But then, I thought the Cabbage Patch kids were the most ridiculous thing I had ever seen. Eventually Pet Rock came around and beat out the stupidity of the Cabbage Patch Kids.
