1. McDonald’s French Fry Snack Maker

Turn pieces of bread into french fries!

2. Fisher-Price Breakfast Set

Remember how that little pan made sizzling noises?

3. Play-Doh Make-a-Meal

OK…my subs NEVER looked that good. So frustrating. But so much fun.

4. McDonald’s Happy Meal Toys

Naturally. A staple of American childhood.

5. Play-Doh Spaghetti Factory

This was fun but basically guaranteed you’d end up with one giant multi-color ball of Play-Doh a couple hours later.

6. Fisher-Price Mini-Kitchen

The center of your world and way to impress your playdates.

7. Super Dough Flower Makin’ Basket

You could push Play-Doh through the molds to create flower baskets — they were even scented!

I always found those “jars” of baby food frustrating. You wanted so badly for there to be real stuff in there!

9. Creepy Crawlers

This one let gross boys make jelly-like edible bugs.

10. Fruity Erasers

OK, so these technically weren’t toys but that didn’t stop you from using them at playtime…or trying to eat them.

11. Kool-Aid Sno-Cone Machine

Ice, some Kool-Aid powder, and voila: a two-bite sno-cone. Mmmmm.

12. Easy-Bake Oven

Hands down, the best.

The “boy” version of the Easy-Bake Oven concocted such delights as the “Mud ‘n Crud” cake.
