Toys making a comeback this Christmas
Every year at Christmas time different various toys make a big comeback on children's wish list, and this Christmas is no different than any other. These retro toys from years past were a hit with some of us when we were kids, and they are being rediscovered by today's youth.
Certain smaller toys like Hot Wheels, and Barbie Dolls never get old or go out of style in the eyes of children, and are always included on the little one's Christmas wish list. But other toys come and go throughout the coarse of time. Some of these toys of yesteryear make a comeback at Christmas time, and that just proves what comes around goes around in this world.
This Christmas is no different, and some very familiar names in toys have decided to surface once again. At the top of the list we find good old Furby. The biggest change with Furby is the price, and this Christmas they are going for around $60.00.
Slinkys are also making a gigantic comeback this year for Christmas. You remember those little metal spiraled wonders, and with a few mis-twists they were tangled up in a twisted mess till the end of time.
A toy that made an unexpected comeback this Christmas was the good ole Easy Bake Oven. Except this Christmas it's become known as the Unisex Easy Bake Oven. Instead of the pink color intended for little girls, the Easy Bake Oven will be coming out in a brand new purple color scheme this Christmas. This change came about after a very determined 8th grader decided it was time for a change, and got together over 40,000 signatures on a petition drive for a neutral color for both little girls and boys. The company was truly shocked by all of this, and happily made the necessary changes. Hopefully the company gave the child at least one free Easy Bake Oven for all of this work.
Next on the comeback list are the infamous Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Even time itself couldn't contain and hold back Michelangelo, Rafael, and the rest of the shelled super heroes and their "Turtle Power".
Another one of the toys that returned this year on the children's wish list were dinosaur toys. Unlike the other toys on this list dinosaur toys have been coming and going for countless Christmases, and will probably always go from hot to cold, and back to hot again on the Christmas wish list. After all dinosaurs have been around for millions of years.
Both M.U.S.C.L.E Men and Lite Brite Toys are also on the comeback trail for Christmas this year. Also in high demand from the little ones this Christmas are toys from the movies "Toy Story", and "Cars". Princesses never go out of season either, and Skittles candy are certainly a treat that's in very high demand this Christmas for stockings, only coming in second to chocolate. There's still no word out or mention of the Rubik's Cube as of yet for this Christmas. Before I close my 60th hub I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas this year!
Do you remember any of these toys from your childhood days?
