So, welcome to Toys of My Childhood and I can’t wait to post more things for you to love!
Thank you so much for stumbling upon my little blog. I post videos, photos, and other things that remind me of my childhood - mainly of the toy and TV show variety.
I was born in the late ’80s and was a child of the ’90s, so if you remember any toys, TV shows, or ANYTHING of that era that you would like to post or suggest, please let me know!
Thanks again for following and don’t ever forget to keep your childhood close at heart.

SUCH a ridiculous commercial, but SUCH an awesome toy!
I totally had the Koala that flashes near the end of the video. LOVED it so much.
Did you ever have a Giga-Pet?
My little brother was OBSESSED with these. For Christmas every year he’d pretty much only ask for tools or rocks or sticks because he’d much rather be outside playing than have anything to do with indoor toys.
I remember when he got these tools he “fixed” EVERYTHING in the house. He didn’t realize that they were just toys and didn’t do anything at all. But he kept that belt on his hip and carried that tool box around like he was on top of the world.
If I remember right, my Skip-It was purple and I think my brother either had a red or blue one. We’d have all kinds of contests to see which of all the neighborhood kids could skip the longest. As we got older though, our feet stopped fitting through the hole and we would get tired much easier… but oh so many fond memories with these things!
