I was a child of the late 1980s and early 1990s, and I still miss the toys from that era. Teddy Ruxpin, Speak 'n Spell, L'il Miss Magic Makeup, and countless others helped me fill up so many long, rainy afternoons when I couldn't play outside. I actually ran across some of my old things the other day, and decided to compile a list of my top 10 favorite childhood toys.
1. Barbie Dolls

Barbies were my number one top favorite. I'll confess, I played with my Barbie dolls until I was something like 13 or 14. But let me explain: I put together long, drawn out, soap opera story lines for my Barbies, all centered around my big dollhouse and the Peach Pit from my 90210 Barbies. I always preferred Midge over Barbie herself and letting a doll fall in love with my Joey McIntyre doll was the highest honor. My mom often played with me but she didn't do the roles right, so she was in charge of hair and wardrobe.
