I played with paper dolls when I was little, for crying out loud. I still remember my grandma giving me a book full of them, with perforated dolls and clothes that you had to punch out.

I also had LiteBrite, Skydancers, Polly Pocket, Fantasy Fillies, Paddock Ponies, Doodle Bear... most of the awesome 90's toys. I actually still have all my Betty Spaghetti dolls.

I don't understand toys these days. Companies are running out of ideas.

Y'know what else baffles me? Kids' TV shows and movies. Nothing is classic anymore. Poor kids today are stuck with Hannah Montana and crappy computer animated sitcoms on Nick Junior.

My biggest peave is the cartoons that are nothing more than crap...literally. You know, we didn't have the very best cartoons when I was a kid, but they were still educational tools to either teach moral ideas or math/reading/etc. Now, we've got our young kids being educated by the likes of Spongebob and Adventure Time and Regular Show. Stuff that is nothing more than candied pig poo...light on the candy. And we wonder why each generation is dumber than the last .
Phantomcolt18 and Jessabel like this.

Polly Pocket is huge. Furby has lost almost all of the "Wtf? It is so creepy!" factor. Plus you can no longer find Grand Champion horses or other neat, lifelike toys.

I still have all of my breyers. Traditionals are very hard to come by where I live so I will hopefully be keeping them for a long time.
