Toys of the Eighties Index

The toys in this section are not STRICTLY 80s only toys. We have toys that were widely available for purchase DURING the 80s. This section was recently redesigned, so if you have any problems please let ChuckyG know.

Are you an 80s toy expert or just totally baffled by a toy in your possession? We have a page for Unknown 80s Toys when you can send in your pictures, or help others identify their unknown toys.

Like all my other mint condition collectible toys from that era, mom eventually threw my viewfinder and all the disks in the trash without asking me during her spring cleaning. I wanted to keep my toys just for sentimental reasons then, but much later I hounded her about how much money they'd be worth now!
Zim Zam, Comment by Richie on August 02, 2014 - Report this comment
I had a friend who was not coordinated and preferred playing on his Atari computer. I convinced him to play zim zam a few times though, and I remember one time he flinched and looked away and the Zim Zam cord wrapped around his neck and he fell and it yanked the pole down on top of him. Funny as hell to me at the time. My laughter probably scarred him emotionally for life tho. At least he didn't hang himself with it.

I remember I made my little sister cry by making my Mr. T doll pin Brooke onto the floor naked. Mom was not pleased. Ah, memories of more innocent times...

Johnson & Johnson infant toys, Comment by Grandma Dawn on July 29, 2014 - Report this comment
Our children were born in 1980 and 1983. We belonged to the J & J Playpath toy club. We kept all the toys and their booklets during our club membership (12 of them). Our daughter (now 31) had her first baby 10 months ago. She specifically requested I retrieve these Playpath toys from the tubs so HER daughter can play with them. I washed up a couple so far and our granddaughter is happily playing with the Box & Blocks and Fitting Forms right now. Sorry, I don't want to sell them; we are expecting more grandchildren. I'm happy J & J made these and that of the few toys we kept when our children outgrew them, the Playpath ones won retention.

Looking for the a toy from the late 70's to mid 80s. It was a spirograph type game made from thick plastic that was small enough to hold in your hand. (Mine was blue. Don't know if it came in different colors?) It had interchangeable yellow cartridges of different shapes (kept in a slot on the back) that your would put into the holder, then trace the design on a small piece of paper. You would keep changing out the cartridges and tracing until you got the design you wanted. THANKS!
Orbi, Comment by Laura on July 28, 2014 - Report this comment
I have an Orbi for sale. One side is missing the streamers, but you can just attach your own ribbon. Otherwise in good condition. Make me an offer!
