Do you purchase items for your kid that remind you of your childhood?

We bought Fraggle Rock because we enjoyed it growing up. I bought carebears for them when they seemed to show interest...even though I guess it was more my memory lane. I picked out some candy that I use to eat when I was younger to let my kids try.

Some things just sit around, some things get over watched, and some just make me look weird to them...but I do it in hopes that some happy childhood memories can be their memories too. Don't know if it's weird or if I'm the only one that does it...

  • Yeah, when they where little. I bought play doh, silly putty, slinky. Now that they are teens you can really see the generation

  • Yes and I can't wait til dd is old enough to play with Barbie! I love buying the kids toys that I wanted as a child that I never got too, like a kitchen set and a real dollhouse and a Volkswagen Power Wheels Beetle!
