Oh man... Those were all dieing out during my time, I think. I was born in 91, and I'm pretty sure I owned at least half of those at some point. Man, good memories. There was nothing like sinking 5 baskets in a row off that little hot shot game, or tearing into a new pack of pokemon cards. Ah, the good times.

If women can have a closet full of shoes, I can have a safe full of guns.

Several of those are before your time you young whipper snapper.

That is true, although my parents were pretty far behind on the "keep my kids outfitted with all the cool new toys" trend, so I still got some of the old toys and didn't even realize they were old.

Had/still have 28 of those things from that list.
That type of stuff pops up quite a lot at thrift stores.
Picked up crossfire recently, we somehow keep on launching the balls out of the game and across the room while playing it which makes it even more entertaining.

I don't really get the title. I'd say 3/4 of them are still on the market. You must be calling us too old for toys.

I remember my buddy getting one of the Gameboy cameras & me thinking it was the coolest thing ever!

On a side note, this is a cool site. Here's the link for this year I was born. Go ahead five - 10 years from when you were born & you'll see the toys from your prime kid ages. Pretty cool

Aaaarrrrrrhhhgggg! I cleaned a kids room to get a mighty max. He stiffed me. What a creep.





He drives a neon now so I don't feel that bad.

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Many years ago I had two of the toys on the list, #13 which is actually named ViewMaster, and #26 Lite Brite. The ViewMaster enabled the user to see still color photos in 3D.

Do kids still like playing with simple toys? Newer toys are so much more sophisticated that a lot of children probably would be bored with most of the 50 toys on this list. Life sure was simple in earlier times. Try to imagine living a century ago when most children had no toys.

Being born in 91 I remember all of these. Ugh I miss ALL of them.

People are missing the point of them still being on the market
