One of the best parts of being a kid is the excitement that a new toy can bring. Few things in adulthood bring one that kind of pure joy, which is perhaps what makes toy nostalgia so enjoyable. From the hilariously cheesy Dream Phone game to the Talkboy that you still see every time you watch Home Alone 2, these items are still gems to the adults who once owned them. Take a walk down memory lane with Skip It, Poo-Chi, Wuzzles, and so many more legendary toys.
My Pet Monster Made Monsters Seem Friendly
My Pet Monster was a plush toy that hit the market in 1986 and made light of one of kids’ worst fears. Rather than being afraid of monsters, why not befriend one? The toy was so successful that it even got its own cartoon a year after its release.
The success of the cartoon eventually led to a live-action movie! A talking version was even released in 2001. Though you won’t be able to find this adorable toy in stores, many people are still selling used versions online. You’ll be hard-pressed to find one cheaper than $100, though.
