Lincoln Logs

Lincoln Logs instantly takes me back to my brother’s room in our first house. We would sit on the floor and spend hours building little towns and setting up little shops and cabins. The best part is, my parents saved them so I can now share them with my kids. - Melissa


I remember spending hours sitting on the kitchen floor with my sisters, bouncing the ball and playing all sorts of games. The nice thing about these, is that you could play with them when you are by yourself or with a big group. I'd love to buy these now to play with my kids. - Susan

Easy-Bake Oven

Hands down - my Easy-Bake Oven. I can still smell that cake being cooked by the light bulb. I loved the little paddle that came with it so you could push the pan through the oven. I would split the cake 4 ways and everyone in the family got a piece for dessert. - Missy


Play Doh is my favorite classic toy. I now have a toddler and the first time we opened her Play Doh, the smell just brought me back to my childhood too! Love making new creations that delight my daughter and watching her mixing the colors together. - Emily


Maybe it's not as well known, but I seriously LOVED Alphie. Alphie was a toy robot that played different learning, guessing or other games. You could insert different cards and I can still remember playing with it for hours.               - Stephanie 

Lisa Frank Stationary Boxes

I loved the Lisa Frank stationery boxes because it helped bring out my inner fashionista personality and I was a huge organizer so the note pads and pens came in handy. - Gaonou

    I loved playing jacks but it seemed like everyone else got tired of them much sooner than I did. My all-time favorite toy was a homemade one. My Daddy made a pair of stilts for me and I really believe I must have walked at least 100 miles on them!

    My favorite childhood toy was my marble set. I didn?t actually play the game, but I created different designs with my multicolored marbles. I really enjoyed spreading them out on the floor and creating something new!

    I asked for, and then received a Mash-Up Derby set. My dad was a mechanic, which got my sisters & I called on to help him fix cars back when we were kids. I love the sound of cars revving up to this day, but I can do without bleeding brakes in the dead of Ohio winter.

    The "Chrissy"doll. You could press her belly button, shorten her hair, or make it long. I loved braiding it! I wished I had gone into cosmetology!

    I was a big fan of all things Sanrio. I had Pikachu, Keroppi, Hello Kitty, all of it. I had stationary, book bags and lunch boxes.. everything you could think of. I thought they were so pretty and I got a kick out of all my classmates gushing about how cool they were
