Collectibles and Memorabilia : Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

A Christmas list used to look like this:

1) Hot wheels cars
2) Barbie Dream House
3) Easy bake oven
4) Action figures
5) Remote control car
6) Nerf gun
7) LEGO set


Now it looks like this
1) Call of duty Modern Warfare
2) MacBook Pro
3) Iphone 11
4) Tablet
5) Apple Watch

And both lists are written by 6 year olds.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

They still want toys. Toy "unboxings" are some of the most popular videos on YouTube.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

I was waiting at the bus stop a few days ago, and checking my inexpensive android phone, when a little girl - maybe 4 years old - sitting next to me with her older brother, got out her tablet and questioned me about my games etc. At 4 years old, her 'play' tablet was worth a lot more than my 'use for everything' trusty device! She was a lovely little girl, so I didn't steal her tablet and run! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

O yes the youngest kids in the family have all the fanciest and latest tech!

It feels like it has been decades ever since a kidโ€™s Christmas list has looked anything like that. I remember when action figures were the toys that you couldnโ€™t walk into a household without. Another thing that kids often requested was VHS tapes or DVDs.

1) Call of duty Modern Warfare
2) MacBook Pro
3) Iphone 11
4) Tablet
5) Apple Watch

That would be mine as well today, thanks to the evolution of technology changing the market.

Yes, and every Christmas my siblings and I would pull out the Holiday edition of the Sears and JCPenny's catalogs and make our long lists for Santa (our parents). I guess we were spoiled, because we usually ended up getting most everything we wanted.

We've had everything on that first list at one point in time or another. My, how times have changed.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

I still remember my mother asking me what I wanted for Christmas when I was around 8 years old, and I told her a pair of white boots. She got me an orange fringed vest and asked if this is what I meant…

True story.

Still haunts me.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

Oh this was just one example. It sticks out in my mind because I really had my heart set on those white boots! All the other girls were wearing them!

She's done that since forever though. She doesn't have a clue about who I am or what I want, so why bother asking? For real, I'd give a list, an actual written list, and she'd still muck it up!

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

Well that is because you are old, back in your day all kids could do was play with toys. Kids have more options these days. Get with the times grandma, stop trying to stop kids having fun.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

There really isn't much to choose from once kids reach a certain age. Not much creativity with toy makers anymore. That's why they put things like that on their Christmas wish lists.

Re: Remember when kids actually wanted toys for Christmas?

Oh? I thought you just wanted to fck around at a very young age?

And did. Come to think of it ๐Ÿ™„
