We know that toys from the 70s and 80s were fantastic. Well made, built to last and just great to play with.

2. Evel Knievel Stunt Cycle

This was a toy that has been passed down to the last few generations. Once upon a time Evel Knievel was the most famous man on the planet. The daredevil stuntman was the hero of many young kids. His range of toys were very succesful, but the best seller by far was this stunt cycle.

3. The Space Hopper

We all had one of these in the 70s and 80s and we all fell off on more than one ocassion! It has often been relaunched but it will never be as popular as when we were kids.

4. Atari 2600

This was our first gaming console with interchangeable games. Looking back now the graphics were very primitive but this meant that the game play was the main feature. Dig Dug and Centipede were my favourites.
