Toys from the 70’s
I’ve been on a quest to get my grandchildren to stop bringing their electronic games to our house when they come for a visit. It hasn’t been an easy task, but the more we introduce them to some of the games from our childhood the easier it gets. We didn’t have video games and iPhones to keep us busy when we were growing up, but what we did have were a good imagination and a few toys.
Our grandchildren have learned that the TV rarely comes on at our house, and old fashion fun starts with just a couple old toys from the 70’s. I have been having fun teaching my granddaughters some old time jump rope songs, and our grandson is the winning champ of Connect Four.
Since we live on a farm, and in the country, visits usually are centered on whatever project we are working on, but fun is always included. A break for a game of Wiffle ball or archery practice is always a big hit for our grandson, and checking on baby bunnies or having a tea party is a show stopper for our granddaughters.
I had so much fun reminiscing with my hubby about all the toys we played with as kids, and even more excited that many of them are still available today!
With Christmas right around the corner, I thought I would make a list of some of our favorite old toys from the 70’s.
I found most of them on Amazon and since I like to Christmas shop online and beat the crowds I thought I would share them with you.
Here is a list of some of our favorite 70’s toys:
