Beloved Toys From The 1970s That Aren’t Around Today

While some toys from the ’70s are still popular today, there are others that are less remembered like Wooly Willie, Weebles, Raggedy Ann and Andy, and Light Bright.

If you were a child of the 70s, you probably have some interesting memories from those years. Perhaps it was your neighbors that visited the disco regularly, or it may just have been everyone having a perm.

There is also something else that people remember from the 70s, and that is the games we played. Sometimes, the games were simple but they seemed to be so much fun.

There were also a lot of games that came and went and have basically been lost to history. Those are the games that we may have played when we were young but we don’t remember them today.

Thanks to a video by Rhetty for History, many of those popular games and toys from the 1970s are being revisited. We may not have easy access to them today, but at least we can take a walk down memory lane.

According to the video, many of the games that we enjoyed in the 1970s are still around today. They are even extremely popular, including superhero action figures and Legos.

There are also many other toys that have basically disappeared from the scene. These include things such as Wooly Willie, Weebles, Raggedy Ann and Andy, and Light Bright.

If you are really a child of the 70s, you probably have some of the jingles from those toys running through your head right now. It could be the Hungry Hungry Hippos commercials, or perhaps the fact that Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down.

These games and toys may have been fun to us but they probably wouldn’t do as well today. They were made for a simpler time, but even then, there were some that were complex for the decade.

You can still find many of these toys, but only if you purchase them at a high price. Otherwise, you may just need to try to make them on your own.

Enjoy the walk down memory lane:
