One perk of being a parent is getting to play with your kid’s toys during the holidays. Sure, all the new high-tech toys and gear are cool, but what about all the toys you loved as a kid? Turns out, a lot of your favorite toys are making a comeback this holiday season with a few upgrades. Hopefully you’re on the good list and these toys will end up under your tree this Christmas season—you know, for your kids—and also you.
The adorable and cuddly Pound Puppies are back. The new versions look and feel just like the OGs and are ready to be adopted and loved by your kiddos. The puppies have different facial and eye expressions, ear lengths and fur colors, and come in carrier-shaped packages, including a care sheet and official adoption papers.
One of the earliest computerized games from the 70s/80s is back and just as rad as you remember! Fun fact, the Speak and Spell was the first educational toy designed to help children learn to spell over 200 commonly misspelled words using a speech synthesizer. Now, with a few upgrades, your kids can play and learn with this favorite toy, too.
How about a fun throwback to one of the most popular computer games of all time, Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? This handheld edition is perfect for your little crime solver (and you too).To play, kids must complete the missions by traveling around the world to find clues and catch the villains working for Carmen Sandiego, an international criminal mastermind.If they can make it to the end, they get a chance to catch Carmen herself before she gets away.
They have been around for a while, but this toy is getting the retro flashback with authentic reproductions of the original 1980s Rainbow Ponies. Sets includes a brush, sticker and five Rainbow Ponies–Parasol, Moonstone, Skydancer, Windy and Starshine. Each has a different sweet scent and glitter cutie mark. We want them all!
