In our latest Christmas gift guide it’s the turn of retro toys and stuff, so if you missed out first time round here’s your chance.
Etch a Sketch
When I was a kid just about everybody on the street had an Etch a Sketch, just think of it as low tech tablet.
The amazing Etch a Sketch originated as the Magic Screen in France and is now a pop culture icon around the world! Over 100 million Etch A Sketch drawing toys have been sold in 67 countries worldwide since its introduction in 1960. Unsing a mixture of aluminum powder and plastic beads, the screen allows you to doodle, print, draw, then just shake to erase, and do it all again! Recommended age: 4+.
Cost : From $5
Rock Em Sock Em Robots
They are no where near as cool the robots featured on our toy robot gift guide but Rock Em Sock Em Robots are still a pretty entertaining blast from the past.
The original Rock’Em Sock’Em Robots™, first introduced in the 60s, are back and hotter than ever in this nostalgic reproduction. Maneuver Red Rocker® and Blue Bomber® around the ring as you try to knock your opponent’s block off with jaw-jolting action! Remember how the losing robot’s head pops up with the power punch?
Cost : $19.98
