30 Toys Of Your Childhood

HappyMealToysWhat was your favorite toy that you loved playing with as you grew up? Was it a part of a series or a stand-alone toy? Can you remember the names off all your favorite toys you enjoyed as a kid?

WuvLuvs? Happy Meal Toys? The Original Littlest Pet shop? Fury? Ringing any bells?

If so, then I bet you were a 90’s baby like me. Not all of my favorite toys were pulled directly from the 90’s decade, though. Some of the best were from the early 2000’s, too, even though they are usually disregarded as too far into the new age to be considered “classic” or “retro.”

If you’re like me and love a little nostalgia in your life every now and then, check out my latest article on The Odyssey Online! Parents of children born in the 90’s: I’m sure you’ll definitely appreciate these, too! I know my mom did when we went through them together. A little 90’s and childhood nostalgia has never hurt anyone!

Check out my full list of 30 Toys of My Childhood! And if you like it, remember to share it along on Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest. How many of your friends remember all of the toys in my list?

What Disney Movies Have Taught Me


Growing up on Disney and Pixar, I have gained some of the most important life lessons. Every person has a story, and every story has a lesson you can learn from. That’s why Disney has become such a staple in many lives no matter how old you are. No matter what the situation is you can always connect to the stories.

Pinnochio (1940)
Taught me that lying only causes problems and that you have to work hard and stay moral in order to achieve your dreams of becoming a “real boy”

Dumbo (1941)
Taught me that everyone is different, some more than others, but no matter how different someone is everyone is special and has the ability to great things despite what others may think.

Cinderella (1950)
Taught me that if it’s meant to be then the metaphorical shoe will fit. It’ll all work out in the end.

Alice in Wonderland (1951)
Taught me that it’s okay to dream of a different life, but no matter how much you dream, you have to remember that you’re most likely already where you need to be.

Peter Pan (1953)
Taught me that no matter how great and easy childhood may be you’re eventually going to have to grow up and enter the adult world.

Sleeping Beauty (1959)
Taught me that no matter how much you try preventing something from happening, there’s still a big chance of it happening.

The Sword in the Stone (1963)
Taught me that education is important and that knowledge will triumph over strength.

The Jungle Book (1967)
Taught me that you can live with the bare necessities and still be completely happy.

The Little Mermaid (1989)
Taught me not to go selling me voice to an evil sea witch because bargaining an important part of yourself in hopes of reaching your goal never really works out the way you expect.

Beauty and the Beast (1991)
Taught me that you should never judge anything by its outwards appearance because you never know what is hiding underneath.

Aladdin (1992)
Taught me that it may be great at first to get your wishes fulfilled and pretend being someone you’re not, but eventually it’ll become a problem and you’ll realize it’s better to be yourself because if it’s meant to be then the person will love you for who you really are.

Lion King (1994)
Taught me that you can’t runaway from your life; you can never forget who you are and where you came from.

Toy Story (1995)
Taught me that you’ll find friends in the least likely places and people; opposites attract, and you need to allow yourself to be open to new friendships and experiences.

Hercules (1997)
Taught me that if you want to be a hero then work for, and don’t ever let it go to your head.

Mulan (1998)
Taught me that I don’t need a man to save China and that sometimes it’s worth taking the risk to doing something worthwhile.

A Bug’s Life (1998)
Taught me that sometimes you need to stand up to the bullies. Don’t let them run your life.

Tarzan (1999)
Taught me that the world is one big family, no matter who or what you are; we have to respect each other, ourselves, our beliefs, and the world around us.

Monster’s Inc. (2001)
Taught me that sometimes you have to go against what everyone else believes in order to learn the truth, and you’ll bond with some of the most unexpected people along the way.

Lilo and Stitch (2002)
Taught me that family comes in all shapes and sizes and that it is the most important thing you can have in life.

Finding Nemo (2003)
Taught me to just keep swimming no matter how dark of times it may seem; eventually you’ll find the light again.

Wall-E (2008)
Taught me that real love requires few words.

Up! (2009)
Taught me that no matter how much you miss the past, hold on to the good memories but also be able to let go and move forward in your life.

The Princess and the Frog (2009)
Taught me that you have to work to achieve your dreams; you can’t just wish on a star and they magically come true.

Tangled (2010)
Taught me that when you truly love someone you’re willing to sacrifice anything for them.

Brave (2012)
Taught me that you are the only person in control of your destiny.

Wreck-It Ralph (2012)
Taught me that whatever job you take doesn’t define who you truly are and what your future could be.

Frozen (2013)
Taught me that sometimes it’s not a man’s love you need; your family and the bond of sisterhood is the one thing you can truly rely on for genuine love.
