20 Vintage Toys Parents Would Never Let Their Kids Anywhere Near Today

Purple Clover Logo By Little Things of Purple Clover | Slide 1 of 21: Kids today probably think that they have the coolest toys. The dramatic technological advances that occurred when many of us were already adults have no doubt afforded them some cool things, but their toys have nothing on ones from past decades. Most kids today might scoff at the idea of spending an afternoon wearing moon shoes or slinging Sky Dancers, but they simply don't know what they've missed out on. Views on parenting have also changed a lot in the past few decades. There were plenty of toys that our moms and dads didn't think twice about getting us that would elicit some pretty outraged Facebook rants today. Somehow we survived the era of inappropriate and dangerous toys, and we made it out with character, thank you very much. These vintage toys made our childhoods complete, even if the parents of generation Z wouldn't dream of letting their kids play with them.
