    Are there gifts or retro toys from your childhood, that you have given, or would love to give to your child?

    I can't say that they're discontinued any more, but I've given my kids things like Rock Em Sock Em Robots, Toss Across, Stocking stuffers like Silly Putty, Slinky, Old Maid card games, and other things that I got as a kid. They loved them.

    Yes, I should rephrase that, they have actually brought a lot of retro toys back, and some never left.

    I would have loved to give my daughter a “Tubsy” Doll. I never got one the Christmas I asked for it.

    When I was a child in the late 1970s, I had this doll family called The Sunshine Family. They were sort of like barbie dolls, but if I remember correctly, they were a bit shorter. There was the mother, father and their baby, and you could buy accessories that were sold separately. I had the house, but there was also a pickup truck and a two person bicycle with 3 wheels and a basket on the back of it. I played for hours with them. I don't have children, but if I did, these dolls are what I would have loved to give them.
