The term “toys” has changed drastically in the past 10-15 years thanks to the rise of technology. While many of us that grew up in the ’90s think that we were living in the peak of toy creations, looking back on our beloved pasttime games makes us now feel like we were in the 1800’s compared to “toys” today. Kids now turn to their gaming system, phone, computer or iPad when in need of a toy but the ’90s combined the best of being active and only a bit of technology resulting in some pretty amazing toys and games.
Yup, at one point our parents were spending money on round pieces of cardboard to make sure their children had the latest and greatest in toys. While that may have angered them at the time, I bet parents now wish they could go back to that without having to dish out hundreds or thousands for an iPad or newest tech to give their children something to play with. The nature of the game was simple but also introduced children to risk-taking and bets as they had to decide whether to play “for keeps” or not prior to the game. Oh the good ol’ days.
