The best classic toys for kids 2010 are proof of the fact that “the classics never die”. It seems that these toys were made with the concept of true enjoyment and holding the interest of little ones, thus are still the tried and true choices of not only parents – but are also quite often the favorite toys of children to this day.
For this year – from the list of the top 10 classic toys for kids, here are the three top sellers:
1. Classic Latches Board from Melissa and Doug (for kids 3 to 5 years of age) – This is a “latch, pull, open and close” toy that is an ideal choice for toddler age children to help develop eye hand coordination. It is also quite colorful with plenty of little surprises behind each door. The specific toy in mind in this category is the “Melissa and Doug Classic Latches” toy that apparently tops the list of all classic toys being sold this year.
2. Classic Mr. Potato Head (for kids 2 to 12 years of age) – The evolution of Mr. Potato Head is actually rather interesting – it seems that since the first Pixar “Toy Story” movie, this much-loved toy has surpassed simply being a fun toy and has moved into the realm of being practically a “cult” favorite. Mr. Potato Head is available in so many different forms and looks these days that it would take some time to find and count them – but as one might expect, he is still available in his original classic form, which is also very much in demand.
3. Classic Red Dual Deck Tricycle from Radio Flyer (for kids age 2 to 5 years) – Although I actually have no idea if this is the original of the classic tricycles, it certainly at least comes close and is the perfect example of a “forever favorite” of tricycles for kids. Fire engine red, tassels and complete with a little horn on the handles, this toy remains not only on the list of the hottest selling classic toys, but an all time favorite of the entire lineup of kids toys – period.
The best classic toys for 2010 are but a small taste of what is available out there from the lineup of all time favorites. These toys are most definitely the top of the list in many kids toy collections, and also seem to bring back some very fond memories for us adults as well.
