Toys are a significant part of childhood memories for many of us, especially those from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. Whether it was a favorite doll, action figure, board game, or collectible, these toys hold a special place in our hearts and remind us of a simpler time. Toys and games have come a long way since then, with new technologies and innovative designs bringing a new level of excitement and engagement to playtime. In this blog post, we’ll take a walk down memory lane and explore some of the most beloved toys, dolls, games, and collectibles from the past few decades and discuss how they have evolved over time.
As a 40-year-old woman, I may not be the target demographic for the latest toy releases, but that hasn’t stopped me from indulging in my love for both retro and modern toys. Growing up in the 80s and 90s, I was fortunate enough to experience the golden age of toys and games that captured the imagination of an entire generation. But even today, as I browse the toy aisles, I’m still amazed at the innovative and creative designs of the latest releases. From dolls and action figures to board games and collectibles, there’s something for every kid at heart. In this blog post, I’ll be sharing some of my favorite toys and games from the 80s, 90s, 2000s, and today.
The 80s were a magical time for toys, with classics like Care Bears, My Little Pony, and Rainbow Brite capturing the hearts of kids everywhere. The 90s saw the rise of interactive toys like Tamagotchis and Furbies, which provided hours of entertainment and companionship. And who could forget the legendary Beanie Babies, which sparked a worldwide craze and collector’s market that still exists to this day.
Many of my own classic toys of the 80s and 90s were lost in a fire sadly. It’s a shame because I owned so many – hundreds or thousands – and, according to toy collector David Gustaveson, they are worth sometimes $500 and up for a single toy even in gently used condition without original packaging. A few examples of highly priced vintage toys include some My Little Ponies, Germz, Popples, Tyco Kitty Kitty Kittens, and the original Mall Madness, just to name a few.
Moving into the 2000s, the world of toys and games continued to evolve with the introduction of digital and tech-driven play experiences. From the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance to the debut of the iPod and iPhone, kids had access to an entirely new realm of entertainment. And in recent years, we’ve seen a resurgence of classic toys and games, with retro brands like Polly Pocket and Tamagotchi making a comeback in the form of updated designs and collectible editions.
As for current releases, there are endless options to choose from. From the adorable and interactive Hatchimals and Fingerlings to the creative and imaginative LEGO sets and Play-Doh kits, kids today have access to an array of toys that foster learning, creativity, and fun. And for collectors, the world of Funko Pops and action figures has exploded, with highly detailed and intricate designs that pay homage to beloved characters from movies, TV shows, and comics.
As someone who has grown up with the toy industry, I can say with confidence that the world of toys and games is just as exciting and innovative today as it was decades ago. While the technology and designs may have evolved, the joy and wonder that comes with playing with a beloved toy or game remains the same.
Here are some of my favorites throughout the past 4 decades in the toy industry. Maybe you’ll recognize some of your favorite toys from your childhood, or recommend our readers a new toy they should check out. The toys are not listed in any preferred order, but rather listed as they came to my mind. I’m sure there are many other fantastic toys I have forgotten or just haven’t discovered myself yet.

16. Legos (1949)
People love LEGOs for a variety of reasons, but perhaps the most prominent reason is the sheer creativity and imagination they allow. With LEGO, the possibilities for building and creating are endless. Additionally, LEGOs appeal to both children and adults, making them a timeless toy that can be enjoyed by generations.
In terms of intricacy, LEGO sets have become increasingly complex and sophisticated over the years. Modern-day releases are often designed to replicate famous buildings, cars, and even entire cities, requiring a high level of attention to detail and technical skill to assemble. The sets may include hundreds or even thousands of individual pieces, and the instruction manuals can be dozens of pages long.
The cost of modern LEGO sets can vary greatly depending on the size and complexity of the set. Some sets can cost as little as $10 or $20, while others can cost several hundred dollars. The higher cost of some sets is due to the level of detail and complexity involved, as well as the licensing fees required for certain brands and franchises.
Despite the high cost of some LEGO sets, many fans are willing to pay the price for the satisfaction of building and displaying the finished product. And with the popularity of LEGO continuing to grow, it’s likely that the demand for intricate and complex sets will only continue to increase.

21. Pogs and Slammers (1990s): Pogs and Slammers were a popular fad during the 1990s. Pogs are small cardboard discs, usually with colorful designs on them, that were played with by stacking them and hitting them with a heavier disc called a slammer. The goal was to flip over as many pogs as possible in a single turn. Slammers were often made of metal or plastic and could be decorated with logos, sports teams, or cartoon characters.
While there are similarities between pogs and tiddlywinks, they are not the same thing.
Pogs, also known as milk caps, are small, circular discs made of cardboard or plastic that were popular in the 1990s. The game involves stacking the pogs and using a heavier disc, called a slammer, to hit the stack and try to flip over as many pogs as possible.
Tiddlywinks, on the other hand, is a game that has been around since the late 1800s. It involves using a small disc, called a squidger, to flip a smaller disc, called a wink, into a cup. The game can be played individually or in teams, and the winner is the player or team who successfully gets the most winks into the cup.
So while the two games may share some similarities, they are distinct games with their own rules and equipment.

The game also includes new stores and updates to some of the original ones, such as the addition of a spa and a movie theater.
In Mall Madness, players take on the role of shoppers trying to buy all the items on their shopping list before their opponents do. The game board is designed to look like a mall, with stores, escalators, and even a food court. Players roll a die to move around the mall and can use their credit cards to buy items at the various stores. The first player to collect all the items on their shopping list and make it to the parking lot wins the game.
The 2020 version of Mall Madness adds some new twists to the original game, including an updated look and feel, more stores to visit, and an electronic tower to keep track of players’ progress.

My earliest childhood memory – of anything ever – that I can 100% remember was one Christmas morning, while visiting my grandparents in California, coming downstairs, to an inflatable Gumby who was like 7 feet tall all blown up and next to – and taller than – our Christmas tree. I was like 4-6 years old and loved Gumby.
I recently brought this up in casual conversation and my nana was shocked I remembered this. She knew the exact house I was talking about and remembered it too but was surprised I remembered it 35+ years later because I was so small. My mother argued that it wasn’t in California that it was here in PA. But I said no I remember we flew out there to visit them that year and it was the last year we ever flew out there. Later when I was about 12 I would start flying to visit them on my summer vacations. I also lived in Cali for a few years going to college, had my first ever boyfriend and kiss and sex and date and first boy I ever even talked to or anything there. I have the best memories in Cali – even before the boyfriend lol. All my cousins and family were there, I didn’t need toys. I went to the beach and nana and papa had a pool in their yard and I lived my best life every day. I hate cold weather and wish I’d never moved back here – but also if I had never moved back here, I wouldn’t have met my husband… but I plan to retire somewhere warm, probably Florida. But Gumby is my first memory. In California. In anywhere. In my life. And he sells for $280 – $600 now.
