10 Toys and Gadgets I Always Wanted for ChristmasMarie LeBaron
The holidays are here and it’s time to get shopping. Buying gifts for my children always brings back memories of myself growing up and the gifts I received. I loved My Little Pony and Rainbow Brite especially!
But there are a few toys I remember always wanting and not ever receiving. Teddy Ruxpin, Easy-Bake Oven, and a Game Boy are just a few I remember asking Santa Claus for on my Christmas list way back when. I still have a small place in my heart for them, and I might have to do a search and try to find them for my own children this year!
If you have one of these cool toys, make sure to grab some Energizer® MAX® batteries to keep’em going!
Here are 10 of those toys I always wanted when I was a kid:

Easy-Bake Oven 2 of 11
Hands down, this was the one thing I always wanted and never received was an Easy-Bake Oven by Hasbro. It's actually on the Christmas list for my daughter who just turned 8 years old. She doesn't even know she's getting it this year. (It's really for me)

Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine 4 of 11
Yes, the Snoopy Sno-Cone machine. I had neighbors and friends who were always out in their yard making and selling snow cones to us kids. I always wanted one of my own. So much fun.
Game Boy 5 of 11
I was fortunate enough to own a Nintendo console for my TV. But I always wanted a handheld Game Boy, too. Funny how technology has changed and now almost everything is handheld!
Christmas Tree Train Set 6 of 11
I would see these battery-operated Classic Train Sets going around people's Christmas trees and I really really wanted one, too. I thought it was so fun to watch it go around and around, and I could pretend I was on it myself! If you are lucky enough to have one of these, stack up on Energizer® MAX® batteries to make sure your train is always running!
Speak and Spell 7 of 11
This was the best, and I didn't have one :( With the Speak and Spell from Texas Instruments, you could type in any word and it would say it back to you. Such cool technology for back in the day! And even though they don't manufacture these anymore... fear not, I've found the modern version of it: The Frankiln KID-1240 Children's Talking Dictionary and Spell Corrector.*
Ewok Village 8 of 11
Even though I was girly girl growing up, I loved me some Star Wars. I always wanted this Ewok Village from the movie. The Ewoks were my favorite part!
Walkman Stereo 9 of 11
Oh, the Sony Walkman. My older brother had one of these and I begged him to let me use it. I love that it came with headphones and you could listen all by yourself!
