Blast From The Past! 20 Totally Awesome Vintage Toys For Tots

Who knew there were so many vintage toys on the market? From awesome classics from our own childhood and beyond, there are oodles of throwback toys that are up for grabs today, thanks to the Internet!

I certainly didn’t. Not until today, that is.

What started out innocently enough turned into a full-on swoon fest. I mean, most of these items are in mint condition or have been reproduced from the classics.

Take a little trip down memory lane with me, and see if you can’t resist the pull of at least one toy. (If nothing else, stash it for a birthday or as a gift for your little one for the holiday season — that’s what I like to do!)
