Top Toys Both Parents and Their Kids Played With Growing Up

When I was a kid, I’m pretty sure we didn’t have TOYS. We’d play with a rusted tin can and an old boot and LIKED IT. A new survey asked parents what toys they played with as a kid that their kids also play with today (In other words, what toys have stood the test of time and managed to stay relevant for multiple generations). Here are the top 10 toys both parents and their kids played with when they were growing up (and I believe 3 of them, weren’t even toys when I was a kid) . . .

  1. Play-Doh
  2. Mr. Potato Head
  3. Troll dolls
  4. My Little Pony
  5. Furby
  6. Puzzles
  7. Toy phone
  8. Bop It
  9. Building blocks
  10. Bicycles

The survey also found 48% of parents say some version of their absolute FAVORITE childhood toy is still on the market, and 84% have bought or will buy that toy for their child.
