Back when we (Manilennials) were kids, we’ve always wanted that new toy on TV. Since we were children, we are at the mercy of our parents if they would let us have our dream toy. As adults, we still have a soft spot for these thingamajigs and we would pay a (reasonable) price to have it. Your friends might appreciate them as gifts too!
Remember when robots once ruled the cartoon scene? Gundam is one of the shows we look forward to watching on TV. It became so popular, Gundam models were made and sold to different toy stores. Now, these models are sold as collectibles.
Remember those rainbow-colored “magic springs” we would like to play with? Back then, we were able to find slinkies on the sidewalks but now, it’s kind of hard to search for one. Good thing online shops like Shopee are able to help us look for them.
Battery-operated toy cars have always amazed young boys and girls—even adults. So for that friend who wants a Tamiya ever since they were young, online shop Toys PH has different models they would be giddy about.
Betty Spaghetty is one of the fashion dolls of our childhood. The doll has rubber hair that allows children to change it into different hairstyles. Betty also has changeable hands, feet, shoes. Buying this toy would be a major throwback to our dress-up doll phase.
The miniature doll of our dreams, Polly Pocket is one of the most popular toys of our childhood. Polly who has a powder compact for a home, are great collectibles of our childhood even now in our adulthood. Start collecting them through buying at Danzy’s Dainty Dollies.
Before Tetris on Facebook was popular, Brick Game tested the speed of our fingers and sight. This handheld retro device can still be found online. Buy one and you can challenge your friends as you take turns in playing.
Play Super Mario and Pokemon with your very own Gameboy. If you weren’t able to have a Gameboy of your own when you were younger, Gameboy Philippines can help you own one and play to your heart’s content.
Now, go online and find these toys you have been looking for quite some time. Relive your childhood, or better yet, awaken the kid in you and your friends once more.
