6 Childhood Toys We All Miss Playing With

Admit it... you miss being a kid, too.


So I've been feeling super nostalgic recently. Not to mention I have way too much free time on my hands. Here are 6 things I was spending my time doing as a kid.

1. Tamagotchi

These virtual pets were the most popular things for a while. I'm pretty sure I had the exact one in the picture. I remember obsessing over my pet so much that I got thumb cramps. I also think they got banned from my school because too many people were busy feeding their pets and not paying attention to the ABC's. Also... am I the only one who remembers the food in this toy being really weird looking?

2. Don't Wake Daddy

This game was my absolute fave and I can't even tell you why. I remember spending hours playing the game with my siblings and never getting tired of it. I still remember my heart racing as I moved my piece as quick as possible to make sure I didn't wake up the dad... oh, how I miss these times.

3. Parcheesi

Okay, honestly, I'm not sure how many people played this game. but let me tell you, it was the bomb. I was always the elephant because my favorite color was blue and I ALWAYS WON. (I totally learned how to cheat from this game... two 6's every time was my specialty.)

4. Waterful Ring-Toss

Why do I miss this toy? I'm not sure. I guess my 5-year-old self thought this was entertaining and honestly, so does my 19-year-old self.

5. Candy Land

So this one isn't really a toy but still, I miss it. I recently played this game and it's not nearly as fun as I remember. You literally just move along the board. There's nothing else involved. I have no idea why I liked this game, but the colors are pretty. And the Jolly Gumdrop thing is literally me.

6. Play-Doh Dr. Drill 'N Fill

This was probably the nerdiest toy I every owned but it was also the best! This was also the sole reason I wanted to be a dentist for the longest time. It's the only time I every touched play-doh and I could probably enjoy playing it just as much today. I'm definitely getting this for my future kids (and myself.)

This is probably the most random array of toys and games from my childhood, but if anyone wants to come over and play with them... I'm so down.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
