Totally Awesome Nostalgic Toys and Games You HAD to Have in the 90’s That You Can Still Get Today!

Break out those old cassette tapes, fire up the VHS player, and take a walk down memory lane with me today while I talk about nostalgic toys and nostalgic games of the 90’s! Modern toys have nothing on toys from the 90’s!

What were your favorite toys? Growing up in the 90’s, owning a Barbie doll …or twenty, definitely was a must-have for most little girls. For little boys, LEGOs were popular then and still are now. Of course, we all loved playing video games on the Nintendo too, Mario anyone?

But did you know that a lot of other classic toys you and I played with growing up are still available to purchase today?

I used to love walking the aisles of the local toy store and dreaming about adding some of the must-have toys to my collection. We were poor and our toy collection was definitely smaller, but it’s pretty cool that some of the things I wanted and never got are still available for me to gift to my own kids today.

Nostalgic Toys and Games You Can Still Buy Today

Check out all of these great retro toys that have stood the test of time. These would still make a great gift for kids today and you can play with them and remember the good old days!

The best toys are toys that can stand the test of time!

How to Find Discontinued Nostalgic Toys and Games

Didn’t see your favorite toy on the list? Don’t forget to check out garage sales this summer. I have been able to find quite a few of our old favorites to share with my kids.

Do you remember the old McDonald’s drive-thru playset? My sister found that at a yard sale for me. Looking for old Star Wars toys, Tickle Me Elmo, board games, etc.? That’s the BEST place to look! That’s also a great way to find educational toys from the past decade.

You can also always check eBay, Etsy, Goodwill, thrift stores, and antique shops.

I love the chatter phone and the gloworm!! My kids have seen the little phone, but none of them had one. I would love to gift one of those to my new little nephew. I'll bet he'd love pulling it behind him when he's big enough.

I love that there are so many things out there from the 90s that you can still get today! I have three kids, so it is really fun to be able to get them the same toys and games that I played with when I was a kid. My girls love their Pound Puppies and Polly Pockets, and we even had a Lite Brite that they all love playing with as well.

My kids have a lot of these! My little guy LOVES his Cozy Coupe and the girls were playing Guess Who this past weekend! I remember having the Pound Puppies! I don't think my girls have seen those because I know they would want one if they did!
