Does your kids play with toys that you use to play with? Either your actual toy or something you found in the store and had a childhood flashback and bought it for them.

I was at the store and saw a old fashion phone like what I had when I was a kid. You drag it around and the eyes move and it has a spin dial on it. He also has little people but they don't look a thing like the little people I had.

  • For my first birthday I got a cabbage patch doll and I've kept it all these years and my daughter is going to be 1 and she already takes it with her everywhere. She has so many other dolls but she rather have my old doll. It made me tear the first time I seen her with it! LOL And my son plays with trains just like his dad did when he was little.

  • My kids are convinced they're going to be etch-a-sketch artists! They also love slinkies (only the metal ones work very good, plus they make a cool sound).

  • I have one of those old phones! I found it at a yard sale last summer and couldn't pass it up, but I noticed Walmart is selling them now too. I also have the old push and pop mower thingy...and...what else....whenever I see something I had when I was a kid at a yard sale I buy it for him..oh! the little farm set with the doors that creak when they open, and the farmers, and the tractor.. matchbox cars, I know there are others around here. I love seeing him play with things I played with as a tot.

  • My Little Ponies. I got 43 of the originals off of ebay for her and another 56 coming and she has 5 new ones, but I will probably leave those in the box.
