Top 15 children’s toys that we would like to have, we are downright jealous

There are plenty of toys for adults with which we have fun with friends, but that does not completely make us feel like a child. There are cult toys from our childhood that we can no longer use because it has become too simple, too fragile for our boobies or just too expensive to make it into the budget. The thing is, we miss it a lot and we’re so jealous of the kids who have so many stylish toys.

We miss the badge machines we used when we were 12. It used to be super satisfying to press the press and hang badges all over the place, but sadly that’s not fashionable at all anymore. In addition, the real presses cost much more than those for children.

All the children in the world love modeling clay, but it’s so much more fun when there are overpriced plastic molds to go with it.

And that’s actually normal.

When you were a kid, you became king of the world if you had a giant buoy you could ride on. Unfortunately, these things were expensive in addition to being impractical to transport and unbearable to inflate.

The trampoline is still so cool as an adult, but who knows why, it’s frowned upon to bounce cheerfully when you’re 40 years old.

The Kapla have been around for 35 years but the children never get tired of them. Now that adult LEGOs are all the rage, the same could happen to Kapla.

When we were little, we really liked the creative kits that we only used three times a year. We made candles, soaps, chocolates and lots of other ugly things that our parents forced themselves to display.

To this day, I don’t understand how Kinetic Sand works at all. I know there is a binder or whatever, but it remains magical to me. Growing up, our opinion of this sand went from “funny” to “super satisfying” and I dream of having some in my house just to mix it.

A remote control car is nice. A drone is really very very cool but it’s too expensive. Between the two, there is the remote-controlled boat.

It’s not really children who have a telescope that we are jealous of, we would just like to be able to settle for a 50€ telescope and have the impression of seeing really well when it’s just a magnifying glass. As a real telescope costs several organs, we will kindly abandon the idea.
