It is holiday time around here and with that comes the only time of year I spend time looking at toys, trying to decide what to buy for the kids. I prefer toys that the kids will enjoy playing with for more then just a few months and will keep their attention for a while.
Searching through the catalogues and online browsing I was reminiscing over the toys that I loved when I was a kid. I would spend a lot of time playing with my brothers and sister and have some stored away because they hold special meaning.
There are a lot of toys available now that I used to play with when I was younger. Tonka trucks, Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony were a few of my favorites and I noticed they look totally different now. They have been updated, modernized and look almost nothing like what I remember.
