Old-School Toys Parents Wish Kids Wanted For Christmas
Is there anything more crushing than when you buy your kid a toy that you loved as a child, and they just blow it off and go back to playing video games?
A recent survey by Very asked 2,000 parents to name the top old-school toys they wish their kids wanted for Christmas. As you can probably guess, the results are packed with low-tech toys.
"Toys are so important to a child’s development and education," said Andrew Roscoe of Very. "This can help set them up for the future and even spark a lifelong interest that can develop into a career path or hobby."
Here are the top ten:
- A bike.
- Board games.
- A teddy bear or stuffed animal.
- A ball, like a football or basketball.
- Building blocks.
- An art set.
- Modelling clay.
- Toy animals.
- A jump rope.
