20 Retro Toys

From Modular Animal Toys to Retro LEGO Time Machines

— September 5, 2014 — Life-Stages
Although there is any number of technologically focused ways for children to play, we're seeing a resurgence in the number of ways that retro toys are being incorporated back into playtime. As our lives become tech-centric and we crave to disconnect, we're seeing parents who feel this very way taking an upstream approach when it comes to their rearing practices by choosing products for their offspring that are retro or vintage in design as a throwback to the glory days of growing up in an offline world.

As with many markets, the toy industry is cyclical; as we push more towards total tech saturation, retro toys are continuing to maintain their namesake with a variety of new takes on old designs.
