Celebrating Classic Toys

If you are a toy collector, then you are sure to appreciate the classic toys from your generation. Whether it was the etch-a-sketch or the slinky, your favorite toys are guaranteed to bring back fun memories.

Before computer games came about, playing games was so much more sociable. It was common for a group of friends to sit down together and play Scrabble or Monopoly. However, these days there is a huge range of games available to play online, like partypoker and online chess, which means friends sometimes prefer to stay home and play against each other over the internet rather than play face to face. So if you love vintage toys, you might enjoy reading our top three classic toys list.

1. Slinky

Nicknamed the 'lazy spring' this very inventive creation was developed by the naval engineer, Richard James back in the 1940s. It was later developed and modernized into various other toys such as the Slinky Dog and the Slinky Worm. This classic toy is still very popular today. It's also a popular way for teachers to simulate the properties of waves to their students.

2. Barbie Dolls

Ever since these fashion dolls were created in 1959 by Ruth Handler, Barbie dolls have become very popular all over the world. Handler noticed that most dolls were representations of infants, which gave her the idea to create an adult-bodied doll.

3. Parcheesi

If you have read the latest article under Vintage Games on our website, you would have read about the game of Parcheesi. It is a classic game which is thought to date back as early as 500 AD. It is an American adaptation of the Indian Cross and Circle game Pachisi. It is a real collectors item because the boards are beautifully carved out of wood.
