Lots of great throwbacks in this video from Rhetty for History! Although I wasn’t born until the late 1980s, some of these toys were definitely still lingering in classrooms and family rooms when I was a kid. Many are classics – who didn’t love their Etch a Sketch? Who didn’t almost dislocate their shoulder playing Twister? See the video for a fun-filled, plastic-filled trip down memory lane.
The holiday season is usually when we reflect back on the year and think about everything we experienced. It’s also a time when we think back to our childhood and remember that magical time at Christmas and the special gifts we received. In this video we will have a look back at the top Christmas toys from the 1960s & 1970s!
