Old fashioned toys are making a comeback! At a time when kids have every kind of computerized game and battery-operated toy imaginable, parents are re-introducing the toys that they played with in their youth, and the kids are loving it. Both kids and their parents are finding that these old toys are worth remembering. If you don’t have a child yet, you just might find that having a toddler in the house reminds you of your own preschool years, prompting you to relive the past by giving your child the same toys you had growing up.<img src="retro toys for sale.jpg" alt="old wooden kid bike">

Jacks are marbles are just a few such examples that have never gone away throughout the years. These inexpensive and small toys can today be found in dollar stores and as stocking stuffers. Many of today’s parents remember playing these sidewalk games. Super Balls, yo-yos, tops, and Tiddly Winks are just a few of the other classic toys making a comeback as adults seek a sense of nostalgia and a return to simpler playthings.

Speaking of simpler playthings, how about a sock monkey? A stuffed animal made out of brown socks, this classic toy for children actually dates back to the Victorian era, when the toy was a way to reuse worn-out socks. The red heel of the socks gave the monkey its distinctive red lips. In the 1950s, sock monkey patterns were included with pairs of socks, allowing that era’s homemakers to make the toy, by then already a classic, for their children. This homemade toy is still popular today, both among toddlers and with adult collectors.

Like the sock monkey, rocking horses are another children’s plaything from the Victorian era that has continued to be popular to the present day. The toy in its current form first made an appearance during the nineteenth century. These wooden toys have long been made by hobbyists; today there are a number of companies producing this classic, ranging from simple, unfinished wood horses to finely detailed or carved rocking horses.

Perhaps the most popular of these classic toys for toddlers is the ever-present pedal car. Even youngsters with their eyes glued to the screen of a computer or video game are enchanted by this classic toy, climbing in to pedal around the room. With its retro 1950s hot-rod feel, this is a timeless toy that is sure to please generation after generation. In fact, you probably remember racing down the driveway in the pedal toy you had as a child. Like the other toys on this list, pedal cars instantly remind people of the carefree feeling of the 1950s.

As you might notice in this list, many of the most popular old-fashioned toys for toddlers are aimed at getting your kids outside and exercising instead of sitting in front of a screen all day. Whether you’re taking a look at classic toys because you remember them from your own youth, or because you want to give your child endless hours of outdoor enjoyment, you can’t go wrong with these toys!
