Are you ready for the Holidays? I think I am…. gifts are wrapped, clothes have been cleaned, and I’m craving delicious food.

I had fun buying Christmas gifts this year for my nieces. If you’re lucky enough to be an Aunt or Uncle, you know how awesome it is to have a little one look at you as the cool and fun adult who won’t scold you. When I asked what toys my 3 1/2 year old niece was into, I was told ‘Spider-man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Frozen, and Ghostbusters’. This made me very excited because my niece was growing up with some of the same things that me and my brothers grew up with. Little did I know how hard it would be to locate some of these toys. Apparently a lot of kids are into these things. After multiple trips to numerous stores, I finally located some of the preschool Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys. Score!

Do you remember the toys that were super popular growing up? What all your friends asked Santa for or the commercials that were basically on repeat for certain products? Personal Creations created a fun and nostalgic “The Must-Have Toys of the Past 25 Years” graphic. I have to admit that some of these brought back some vivid memories of my childhood. I recently watched Home Alone 2 and laughed when I saw The Talkboy. I had completely forgotten about this toy!

25 Years of Must-Have Toys
