I was thinking back in time today of the toys and games that would entertain me for hours when I was young. All these games and toys had one thing in common. They didn’t require any batteries! Thought I would share some of my favorites with you and hopefully bring you a smile as you think of what your favorites used to be. All of the pictures are from Pinterest.
The first toy is from when I was really little and it held my attention for long periods of time. How many of you can remember the fun of this toy? This is very close to what mine looked like. It was great lining up as many marbles as I could and seeing them race down together, making a clattering noise as they rolled!
I can still remember the joy of getting a brand new box of crayons! The fun of coloring things whatever color you wanted to make them. Letting your imagination flow!
This next game was a part of summertime fun. Fun, safe darts to throw in the yard.
Who remembers playing croquet? It was a big family game at my home. Many croquet competitions we had. So much fun, even when you got out, you just cheered on the players that remained. Plus sometimes I was glad to get out, meant I could go ahead and get myself a snack. Playing croquet made you hungry! 🙂
Now this next toy used to drive me crazy, but it was fun too. Did you ever complete the whole Rubik’s cube?
So what toys, games, or activities do you remember when you were young? Ones that bring back fond memories. Ones where even though they didn’t have the Energizer bunny batteries, the fun still went on and on and on! Take a trip down memory lane and feel free to share them in the comments below.
