As I was Black Friday shopping for Christmas gifts for my kiddos, I was soooo excited to come across several toys from my childhood and teenage years that are making a big comeback! Here are several I have seen while out and about:

1. Cupcake Surprise – I remember how cool it was to turn this little doll into a cupcake, and then back into a doll again. This doll also had a sugary sweet scent that smelled just like… wait for it… a cupcake! Imagine that! This was a really cool toy and is a relatively small and cheap toy making this a great choice for a stocking stuffer this holiday season!

2. Puppy Surprise – I was so excited to see these out again!! Sienna WILL be getting one of these one day! These very pregnant dogs have puppies inside of their tummies that you can put in and take out of during playtime! My sister and I loved playing with these!!

3. Tamagotchis – Who didn’t have one of these in junior high? My first Tamagotchi was from Gadzooks, and I ended up getting it taken away because I was playing with it in class. Needless to say, my pet died a very tragic death. Haha.

4. Teddy Ruxpin – Teddy Ruxpin has come out again! I was a small child when this last came out! This would make a great gift because what child wouldn’t like a storytelling teddy bear?

5. Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots – Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots was a classic game where Red Rocker fights Blue Bomber, and the first fighter to lose its head is the winner! I’ve never played it before, but my husband had this game as a child and LOVED it!

Can you think of any other toys that are making a huge comeback? Does your child have any of these items on his or her wish list? Let me know in the comments!

    Oh Tamogotchies! I loved them as a kid. I think slime is making a comeback now, I used to have things like silly putty and the slime aliens. Now, I see it everywhere!

      Slime is definitely another one! It is all the rage at the school I teach at!

    Ahh I looooved Tamagotchis when I was younger, I had about 5 on my keyrings haha! They were the most entertaining things, to be honest I think I’d still enjoy playing with one now!
