Have you noticed that so many of the toys we all played with as kids are still popular today, or are making a comeback? This holiday season, we have the opportunity to provide our kids with some good ol’ fashion fun. Check out some of my “throwback” picks and let me know if any of these were your favorite!

Remember the days when you’d carry around your Fisher-Price Tape Recorder, record yourself singing and then play it back?
The Fisher-Price Classic Tape Recorder is a timeless toy lets your kids play music, sing along, and record their own voices! They’ll love singing and dancing along to the built-in music, and
then using the microphone to record themselves! (Does not play real cassette tapes.)
This throwback is one that I personally had. Teddy Ruxpin is an icon and is making a comeback this holiday season.
He may have a slightly updated look, but just as he did back in the ’80s, he still reads stories to your kids with his motorized mouth. And since technology has grown so much since he first debuted, fans of all ages will benefit from his new Bluetooth technology,
LCD eyes with over 40 animated expressions that are synced to the stories, and touch sensors in his
hands and vest that allow children to start, pause, and fast-forward through stories and songs.
Teddy includes 3 built-in stories and there are 7 seven additional stories available for purchase through the free app.
Where are all of my Cabbage Patch mommies? The newest addition to the Cabbage Patch family are these Cabbage Patch Kids, who are full of fun, fashion and love, and are ready for adoption.
Each kid comes with a name, birth date, birth certificate and official adoption certificate from BabyLand General® Hospital. Cabbage Patch Kids also feature a bracelet with a heart shaped key that interacts with the Kids’ newest best friends – the adorable Adoptimal Pets (sold separately).
Who didn’t love the Care Bears as a kid? The Care Bears are celebrating their 35th anniversary with the new Rainbow Heart Bear in a commemorative package with a certificate of authenticity. Rainbow Heart’s lush and huggable royal purple fur has special glittery speckles, and her heart-shaped nose is a shimmery purple metallic color.
Another way fans 12 and under can
celebrate the Care Bears’ exciting milestone is by participating in the Create My Care Bear Contest to inspire an all-new character who will join the collection in 2018! From September 1 through December 31, unique Care Bear designs will be collected at www.CareBearsContest.com, and one Grand Prize winner will receive $3,500 and have his/her design turned into a real Care Bear character!
