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

Jacks 

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

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

Alphie

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

    My favorite childhood toy was the Cricket Doll. She read you stories. Matching clothes. She was the ultimate 80s BFF for sure.

    I loved my Barbie dolls. I also had Quick Curl Kelly, Barbie's cousin, and Ken, but sometimes I needed more boys, to escort the evening gown clad ladies, so G.I. Joe came along. (It was great as he had a jeep, and my brother shared.) My grandmother made designer gowns for my Barbie's. Fur trimmed suits, ball gowns, pants suits, tiny sleeves sewn meticulously, my collection included a trunk full of gorgeous clothes, a Van, an Airplane and a House. I made a swimming pool out of a Dutch to on a bath towel. My Mother didn't complain when the wood floor wax was raised. But alas, my sister said I had to put them away, or else she would tell the kids in junior high that I still played with dolls. I graduated from elementary school, my Barbie's had a ball.
