We spent a long weekend at my parents house in Michigan to celebrate the Easter weekend, and my mom pulled out some of my sisters’ and my old toys that she had kept for her grand kids to play with. They were some of the Little People play sets from the 80′s, and right away, my kids loved them!
I don’t know if it was just the novelty of “new” toys to play with, or that they were playing outside on a warm day, but my kiddos played happily together with these toys for over an hour! Playing with one toy, or set of toys, for that long is definitely not a regular occurrence for them.
After a little while of watching them play from inside the house, I went outside to take some pictures. As I watched them play with these vintage toys, I realized that they definitely don’t make toys the way they used to. I think my kids enjoyed these toys so much because they gave them a base to play on, without doing the actual playing for them, and with some little fun elements for them to explore.
Check out how much fun my kids had playing with these vintage toys.
Do you wish they made modern toys more like the vintage ones we played with as kids?
