Toys I Always Wanted When I Was a Child but Never Got

In order of most wanted
  1. 1.
    Sit 'N Spin
    I keep hoping they'll make an adult sized one of these.
  2. 2.
    Easy Bake Oven
    Mom: "we can make cookies in real oven together." Me:"not the same, Mom, not the same!"
  3. 3.
    Big Wheel
    Didn't even get the knock-off version like my brother got.
  4. 4.
    Hoppity - Mickey Mouse Version
  5. 5.
    Speak & Spell
    If I had gotten this, I'm sure I would have come in first instead of second place in my 6th grade spelling bee.
  6. 6.
    Lite Brite
    The only reason I liked to play at my friend Tiffany's house was because she had a Lite Brite. (I'm a much better friend as an adult than I was as a child.)
  7. 7.
    Mr. Potato Head
    My grandma had one for when my siblings and I visited but it just was not enough Mr. Potato Head time.
  8. 8.
    Sea Monkeys
    I knew other kids who had these and they told me they didn't actually look like monkeys. I, however, was convinced that mine would look like the picture on the box.
