There are many things about the past and the present that I could talk about, but I thought that we might talk about the toys of my youth and the toys of today. Do you remember the toys of your youth? I remember mine, they were much different then the toys of today. They were durable and could take a beating. Just like the saying “takes a licking and keeps on ticking”, you could play with them for hours and they wouldn’t break. The toys that I had didn’t break as easy as the toys of today. I had a variety of toys meant for boys and girls; Barbie dolls, cap guns, and even matchbox cars.
Most toys seemed to be affordable and you were able to buy more. The prices weren’t high like they are now. There were also a variety of toys to choose from whether you were a boy or a girl.

Today’s educational toys are wonderful and teach a wide variety of subjects to all ages. Besides reading and math, you can learn science, history, or even another language. There are world globes to teach children about other countries and different cultures. Every year there seems to be something new on the market to help your child with homework or just learning something new. could get flashcards to help with math, spelling, and learning your numbers and ABC’s. There really weren’t much high-tech toys out there at that time. Computers weren’t here yet, and the only video games that were out there were video games at the local arcade or the Atari game system. Do you remember the Atari? It was the first game system to come out. It only had fifteen or twenty games that you could get and they weren’t the best quality. The toys of today seem to be made poorly.
