I've said it before and I will say it again, the 80s is by far my favorite decade for so many reasons. First of all, it is the decade of my childhood. I am a child of the 80s and I loved everything about it! 80's television shows, 80's furniture, 80's vehicles, and especially toys from the '80s. I swear I had some of the best toys providing hours and hours of entertainment for little Rebecca. 

Who remembers your childhood Christmases? I would write my little letter to Santa every year and whatever the most popular toy was that year, you can bet I was asking for it. The excitement of waking up on Christmas morning to see if Santa came through was one of the very best memories of my childhood.

In case you're wondering he usually did because Santa was cool like that. Some of my most memorable gifts were the year I got a Lite Brite, I got a Simon (says) toy one year and I was super good at it. The year I got my Speak and Spell was the best and to this day I am an excellent speller and I truly owe it all to that 80's toy.

I tell my children that kids these days don't know what good toys are! My childhood would not have been nearly as cool if I had just grown up with an IPad in front of my face like many of our children have. Where's the fun in that? Opening up the package of a new toy, playing with it for hours, having your neighbors or cousins over and showing it off to them. Best.feeling.ever!

Let's take a trip down memory lane, who remembers these popular 80's toys?
