19 Toys That'll Make '80s Kids Say, "Wow, I Totally Forgot About That!"

Of course your remember Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and She-Ra! But, do you remember playing with Dino-Riders and Lady Lovely Locks?!

Posted on

1. Family Tree House

Of course, you assumed it (this usually hand-me-down toy) was part of the Fisher-Price Little People line. It actually belonged to Kenner's Tree Tots line. But, regardless, it was the perfect play set not just for your Little People, but ANY figurine toy really.

3. Highway Patrol Motorcycle Cop

This was just a generic toy that somehow ended up in every kid's toy box throughout the '80s. Although it probably drove your parents crazy any time you turned on its siren and light, while running around the house with it.


12. Robotech

Robotech was one of the shows that every '80s kid probably has a vague memory of watching (unless you were a fan, of course). And somehow you always ended up with a figure or two from the toy line, even if you weren't a fan of the show.


15. Lady Lovely Locks Dolls

So in the '80s there was a lot a dolls whose storylines took place in enchanted worlds (ie. Rose Petal and Strawberry Shortcake), but Lady Lovely Locks had one thing over all the others: LOTS of hair! Plus, we can probably all agree that Duchess Ravenwaves was a villain you rooted for!

16. Fisher-Price Little People Zoo

So, you probably have memories of playing with the Little People barn, parking lot, or house, but LBH, the zoo was where it was really at! Not only did it come with a bunch of animals, it also came with a TRAM and ramp to toss them from.


18. TubTown Harbor Village

The greatest toy ever built for the tub. Not only did it come with boat and figures, but it also included an entire seaside village play set. PERFECTION. In fact, you probably played with it outside of the tub.

19. Haunted House Pop-Up Book

OK, so this really wasn't a toy. But, it was pop-up book that provided you with the perfect scary backdrop for your toys!
