8 Baby Toys Everybody Played With In The 80s!

There are fantastic toys, there are amazing toys and then there are Iconic toys. That is exactly what most of the toys on this list are. If you grew up in the UK in the 70s and 80s then it’s a pretty safe bet that you played with at least one of the toys on this list, when you were a baby. Most them got passed down through the siblings, cousins and family members. You might even see many of these toys around still today at car boot sales, jumble sales and in play areas at the doctors waiting room. They probably won’t be being played with though as phones and tablets always seem to win over the more simple toys these days! If you had these toys you might not remember, because you were only a baby! These 8 baby toys were very popular with the babies back in the day!
