Every generation has toys and games that represent their childhood. I remember playing marbles, four square, handball and chestnuts at lunch in the schoolyard. I remember the girls all had cabbage patch kids and my little ponies as well as massive sticker collections (which admittedly the boys did too – scratch & sniff skunk… you know you owned it). While neither of those held my attention back in the day, something tells me that if ~Spippo had been employed by my little pony at the time I would have had the entire collection.
Of particular note:
My Little Stormtrooper, My Little Alien and My Little Cthulhu.
Classic toy creativity ftw.
