Over the years, Lego blocks have served as the literal building blocks of hundreds and thousands of childhoods. Airplanes, skyscrapers, townships and village scenes were all imagined and recreated with small yellow Lego blocks. Still relevant after smart tie-ups with pop culture mega phenomenons such as Star Wars and Marvel’s Avengers, these are toys that also have great value as collectibles. Most of the Lego toys from the last two decades are still available today, perhaps a glowing tribute to enduring legacy of one of the most popular toys of our times.
Dolls and Action Figures
Yet another blast from the past, dolls and action figures were the quintessential items on every child’s wish list while growing up. Little girls hardly left their Barbies out of their sights, while doll houses and matching doll outfits were often the ‘barters’ that parents happily indulged in to get their kids to behave! G.I. Joes, Batman, He-Man and other super heroes were at the top every child’s dream check-list, and some of us even continue to collect these action figures, even as we grow out of its prescribed age!

A death-defying stunt car, a make-believe highway and edge-of-your seat car races were all a part of a childhood that focused more on the imagination and less on gizmos.
