In a toy market filled with moving parts, loud noises and distractions, it’s refreshing to take a look back on the simpler ones of your childhood. There’s a reason why they’re considered classics; chances are you played with them until they wore out. The good news is you don’t have to wish you saved them for your kids because many are still available. So take a walk down nostalgia lane with these updated classics for babies and toddlers. No batteries required!
