These Toys Can Make Staying Home Fun

I have seen the memes. I have seen the parents pulling out their hair. I know that these are trying times. We are all looking for fun things to do with our kids. Here are some fun ideas that bring our childhood front and center that we can share with our kids. Take a look at these fun toys that your kids will love just like we did from back in the day.

Look On The Brite Side With This Toy 

The Lite-Brite Ultimate Classic is a fun way where you and your kids can show off your creativity. The most fun and nostalgic way to create art with light! New retro-inspired styling resembles the original Lite-Brite from the 80’s and now features a bigger screen, brighter pegs, and more templates including six retro patterns!

Just insert the pegs into the templates or freestyle an original design – then press the button to see the creation light-up in four different ways, from steady to blinking. With an updated stand on the back, kids can easily create and display their masterpieces…then turn off the lights for the ultimate effect! Available at Target and Amazon. 

The Toy E.T. Made Famous 

The Speak & Spell is such an iconic toy. I remember in the movie E.T. playing with the Speak & Spell. One of the earliest computerized learning systems from the 70s/80s, Speak & Spell is back and just like you remember! First educational toy designed to help children learn to spell over 200 commonly misspelled words using a speech synthesizer Now a whole new generation can enjoy this classic toy! With multiple play modes and challenge levels, kids will have fun and learn at the same time! Parents know this a great combination: fun and educational. 

You Have To Love The Classics

Replica mini arcade game looks, sounds and plays like the original! Perfect for fans or collectors looking to share this classic with the new generation.
