Have you ever bought your kid a toy that YOU loved as a child? Then they said something like, "yeah, cool, thanks," and went back to playing video games?
A recent survey asked parents to name the top old-school toys they WISH their kids wanted. Here are the top ten . . .
1. A bike.
3. Board games.
4. A teddy bear or stuffed animal.
5. A ball. Like a football or basketball.
6. Building blocks.
7. An art set.
8. Modelling clay.
9. Toy animals. We think they mean those little educational ones for younger kids.
10. A jump rope.
A few that just missed the top ten were a musical instrument at #11 . . . a train set at #14 . . . a yo-yo at #15 . . . a doll house at #21 . . . a telescope at #23 . . . and a microscope at #25.
