Generic Father Figure Needed For Backyard BBQ

I wonder what kind of response he received from this Craigslist ad?  LMAO!

 

To interested individuals,

We will be throwing a backyard BBQ on June 17th to celebrate beer and each other. We range in age from 21-26, and while most of us know how to operate a grill, none of us are prepared to fill the role of “BBQ Dad” That being said, we are in need of a generic father figure from 4PM to about 8PM (though you may stay the full duration of the party). Duties include:

– Grilling hamburgers and hotdogs (whilst drinking beer)
– Bringing your own grill (though this is subject to change. We will provide all of the meat)
– Refer to all attendees as “Big Guy’, “Chief”, “Sport”, “Champ” etc. (whilst drinking beer)
– Talk about dad things, like lawnmowers, building your own deck, Jimmy Buffet, etc. Funny anecdotes are highly encouraged. All whilst drinking beer.

Desired experience:

– A minimum of 18 years experience as a father
– A minimum of 10 years grilling experience
– An appreciation of a nice, cold beer on a hot summer day

We can’t pay you in money, BUT we can give you all the food and cold beer your heart desires. Grill for a few hours, then sit back and crack open a few cold ones with the boys.

THIS IS A REAL AD. Do not hesitate to call if you are interested. Preference will be given to applicants named Bill, Randy, or Dave.

Pixar Inspired Pep Rally Turned High School Dance Team Into Internet Sensations

High school pep rallies don’t usually gain the attention of the NBA. They also don’t normally have sketches that reach millions of views on YouTube. But this Walden Grove High School dance team, who took storytelling to the next level with their Pixar-themed sketch, is anything but typical.

With special visits from “Monsters, Inc,” “Finding Nemo,” and “Toy Story,” the viral video with more than 4 million views, tells a unique story and draws in artists with an appreciation for dance.

All the performers wear intricate costumes that look just like the classic animated characters, and many involved face paint or masks. The well-planned dance connects everyone’s favorite stories. While the dance featured some of Pixar’s best known protagonists, it also highlighted some lesser known individuals, such as mini green soldiers from “Toy Story.”

As a result of the shares, the team was again approached by NBA’s representative Phoenix Suns and invited to perform at a game between the team and the Chicago Bulls.

For dance experts, it’s probably not a surprise that  Walde Grove High School’s state-champion team captured the attention of millions. This routine is absolutely astonishing!

Check it out in the video below.

If You Do These 6 Things, You’ll Never See another Spider in Your Home Again

When the summer comes, all the insects come with it. Some can scare the hell out of us. The potential of the commercial spider and bug repellents is limited, but they are full with dangerous chemicals. Instead of poisoning yourself with them, why don’t you try natural ways to get rid of the nasty spiders?

Cedar

You can keep spiders away from your closets, by placing cedar blocks in your cupboards and closets, as well as your garden. Additionally, you can purchase cedar hangers and forget about spiders, as well as moths, near your clothes!

White Vinegar

You probably already know that vinegar is one of most versatile items you can use in your home. Its smell keeps ants, mosquitoes, and spiders at bay. You can prepare a natural repellent spray, by mixing 1 part vinegar in two parts water, in a spray bottle, and spray all around the house and the yard.

Peppermint Essential Oil

Spiders hate peppermint as much as we love it! You should make a natural repellent, by mixing 8 drops of essential oil, with a bit of liquid dish soap, to help spread the oil molecules in the water in a spray bottle. If the solution does not smell minty enough, you can add 8 more drops of peppermint essential oil. Shake the bottle well, and then spray it all around the house.

Furthermore, you can mix vinegar and peppermint, and prepare another natural repellent.

Chestnuts (and other tree nuts)

Tree nuts like chestnuts, walnuts, and horse chestnuts are effective in repelling spiders as well. Their scent includes a chemical which spiders cannot tolerate. You should place several on the windowsills and you will quickly solve this issue!

Keep it clean!

Your home should be absolutely clean in order to prevent these unwanted guests. This means you’re your floors should be vacuumed and swept. We also advise a seasonal de-clutter, and you will be surprised how much space you actually have at home!

Furthermore, make sure you also clean the outside part of the house. If you have a lawn, it should be cleaned of leaves, sticks, and clippings. Additionally, you should investigate whether you have some gaps in the doors or window sills. If you live in an apartment, regularly clean the balcony and windows.

If you are one of those who are continually struggling to maintain their home spider-free, then, these tips will definitely be of great help!

Her Body’s A Temple

Her Body’s A Temple

body-isatemple

Patrick O’Malley hoisted his beer and said: “Here’s to spending the rest of me life between the legs of me wife!” – and he took home the top prize for the best toast of the night.

 

In bed later that night, he told his wife: “Mary, I won the prize for the best toast of the night.” She said, “Aye, Paddy, what was your toast?”

So he told her: “Here’s to spending the rest of me life sitting in church beside me wife.”

“Oh,” she said, “that is very nice, dear.”

 

The next day, Mary ran into one of Paddy’s drinking partners in the street. Mischievously, the man said: “Did you hear about your husband winning a prize in the pub the other night for a toast about you, Mary?”

She replied: “Aye – and I was a bit surprised. Till now, he’s only been down there twice. Once he fell asleep, and the other time I had to pull him by the ears to make him come”.

Student Claims He Is Too Smart For First Grade, The Principal Has This Response

smart-kid

A first grade teacher was having trouble with one of her students. One day she asked Johnny what his problem was he replied, “I’m too smart for the first grade, my sister is in the third grade and I’m smarter than her too.” 

The teacher took him to the principal’s office and explained the situation to the principal. The principal told her that he would give Johnny a test, and if he failed to answer one question he would have to go back to the first grade and be quiet. The teacher and Johnny both agreed.

Principal: “What is 3 x 3?”

Johnny: “9.”

Principal: “6 x 6?”

Johnny: “36.”

And so it went on like this, the principal asked him every question a third grader should know. Finally after about an hour he told the teacher “I see no reason Johnny can’t go to the third grade, he answered all of my questions right.”

The teacher asked if she could ask him some questions. The principal and Johnny agree.

Teacher: “What does a cow have 4 of that I only have 2 of?”

Johnny: “Legs”

Teacher: “What do you have in your pants that I don’t have?”

The principal gasps but before he can stop him from answering Johnny says, “Pockets.”

Teacher: “What does a dog do that a man steps into?”

Johnny: “Pants.”

Teacher: “What starts with F and ends with K and means a lot of excitement?”

Johnny: “Firetruck.”

The principal breaths a big sigh of relief and says “Put Johnny in the fifth grade, I got the last 4 questions wrong myself.”

Do You Have Psychic Powers?

Many people might have psychic powers but may not recognise the signs of of their ability.  Check out the following tell tale signs to see if you possess psychic powers yourself.

 

Sign #1: You’ve Always Been Drawn To The Paranormal

psychicpowers10

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

 

Ever since you were little, you’ve kind of liked the things that go bump in the night. Maybe you liked staying up to watch the scary movies on TV when everyone else would rather be safe under the covers. Or maybe you feel a certain connection to the places and stories that other people think are just a bit too spooky.  It might be something telling you to explore that side of life a little more.

Sign #2: You’ve Always Seen Strange Things

psychicpowers01

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Maybe you’ve written them off as childish imaginings, but it’s perfectly possible that you’ve experienced something other.  Children are traditionally thought of as more receptive to paranormal events, and so you might have even thought seeing or sensing a spirit was totally normal!

Sign #3: You Hear Noises In The Next Room — When No One Else Is Home

psychicpowers09

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Just like seeing a snippet of a shadow is believed by some to indicate the presence of a spirit, hearing a strange noise like shuffling, murmuring, or motion in a place you know no one should be is also thought to be a sign that you’re picking up on the paranormal.

Sign #4: You Have Vivid Dreams — And Nightmares

psychicpowers02

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

The dream and spirit worlds are thought to be linked, and so it makes sense that if you’re sensitive to spirits while awake, then you’d be sensitive while sleeping, too.  You may be able to remember your dreams quite clearly, sometimes for years, and experience sensations like touch and smell in your dreams.  And that includes frightening nightmares, too!  You might also be able to determine meanings and messages from your dreams, which some believe are the spirits communicating directly with you.

Sign #5: Electronics Seem To Malfunction Around You

psychicpowers08

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Many believe that the energy put out by spirits or by those with increased spiritual energy has the ability to interfere with electronic devices, causing them to glitch and shut off, seemingly at random — just like you see in horror movies!  If it seems like everyone’s phones lose service around you, or if you’ve had to call IT support one too many times, it might not be your devices.  It might be you.

Sign #6: You Have Strong Reactions To Old Places

psychicpowers03

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Walking into a place with a lot of history, you might find yourself getting a sudden, strong feeling that doesn’t seem to make sense — at least, not in this world.  The same thing might happen when you handle an old object that has its share of stories.  It’s believed that psychic energies can attach themselves to places and things, and if you’re sensitive enough, you might pick up on them.

Sign #7: You’ve Experienced Strange Things After The Death Of A Loved One

psychicpowers06

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Everyone is shaken after a death, but maybe you’ve noticed other things happening, out-of-the-ordinary things that also seem to remind you of the deceased.  Some people believe that this may be evidence of the departed’s spirit sticking around just a bit longer, usually to let the surviving family members know that everything’s OK!

Common signs include white feathers and floating lights.

Sign #8: You See Things Out Of The Corner Of Your Eye

psychicpowers04

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

It’s not uncommon to think you see a dark shape — maybe a human-shaped one — dart past the corner of your vision.  There are many theories as to why these “visions” appear, but some believe that these shadows are actually spirits, especially if you find you see them in the same places.

Sign #9: Someone In Your Family Has Had Similar Experiences

psychicpowers07

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

It’s believed that psychic abilities, like the ability to roll your tongue or being double-jointed, are hereditary.  So you may have heard your relatives mention, even in passing, a spooky experience they couldn’t explain.  Or maybe when you were kids, you had a cousin who insisted that their house was haunted.

Sign #10: You Have A Strong Connection To Animals

psychicpowers05

Tayra Lucero for LittleThings

Because psychic powers deal with the kind of communication that doesn’t involve words, so many times, they’re believed to be able to communicate with animals, too.  Maybe you’ve always felt a connection to a certain type of animal, or had a strong bond with a particular animal at some point in your life.  You feel a bond that requires no words.

So, do any of these characteristics sound familiar? If so, then some might say you have a propensity toward the spooky and unknown, and you might be able to communicate with things beyond most people’s grasp.

Maine Coon Cats So Fluffy And Adorable You Can’t Resist

Maine coon cats are known to be one of the largest domestic breed of cats.  I think they are also one of the most beautiful breeds in the cat kingdom. 

 

Their Mysterious Origins

The breed originated in the US no doubt, but the truth of the Maine Coon’s origin remains a mystery to date. A few myths circled around, fantastic stories spread, like those that Maine Coon is an offspring of raccoon mixing with domestic cat. They’re also said to have been brought by the Vikings during their exploits, or that Marie Antoinette shipped them to America as part of an escape plan. The most probable of the origin stories is that a longhair cat, an ancestor to Maine Coon, was shipped to America by a certain captain Coon, who used her predatory skills to kill some mice on board.

maine-coon-cat03

The Gentle Giant

Despite their daunting size, Maine Coon is the cuddliest little thing ever! It’ll easily become your or your child’s best friend! Sometimes a little wary of strangers at first, but once you get to know each other better, trust me, they’re the most playful cats there are! Hence the nickname The Gentle Giant.

maine-coon-cat05

Water Fetish

If there’s one thing that the vast majority of cats are repelled by, it’s water. Not so with Maine Coon; not only does she appreciate an occasional dip, but also seems to manically enjoy water activities. Just look at her face prior to hitting the tub! And yeah, her water-resistant coat is also good for swimming.

maine-coon-cat07

A Hunter of Some Repute

Being all cute and cuddly, Maine Coon is also an exquisite mouser. Truly, their hunting skill is a stuff of legends.

maine-coon-cat10

The Fluffiest Cat There Is!

Indeed, Maine Coon’s long hair and bushy tail make her one of the fluffiest creatures that ever walked on four. Their big, well tufted paws are built to withstand the harsh New England climates.

maine-coon-cat02

Who’s A Big Boy!

Maine Coon, being one of the largest domesticated cat breed, can weigh on average anywhere between 10 and 25 pounds, though some have been known to exceed that weight.  They can also grow up to 40 inches in length!

maine-coon-cat04

They Eat Big

If you own this cat, then you know the drill; Maine Coon is a heavy eater. You’ll pay often visits to pet shops in order to indulge their voracious appetite.

maine-coon-cat08

They’ve Got The Brains

In  addition to their playful nature, Maine Coon are among the most intelligent cats out there. These little creatures can actually be trained for tricks. They also answer back your attention, and are known for performing some ludicrous antics on people.

maine-coon-cat06

The First Laureate

Winding our clocks back to 1895 New York, let’s visit the first American cat show.  Guess who was the winner there?

maine-coon-cat09

The purrfect companion.

Beside being such amazing creatures, they’re also skilled hunters and always in the mood for some cuddling. If, after seeing how amazing they look, you’re considering to get one, keep in mind one thing that their owners mostly complain about – they eat A LOT and their hair can be a troublesome task to deal with. Also, as any cat breed, they can sometimes be complete jerks and destroy half of your stuff while throwing a tantrum.

Men Misunderstand So Many things Women Say

It is NO wonder men misunderstand women as they are very complicated individuals!

 

1.  I don’t want to talk about it

misunderstand21

She wants you to go away because she is still building up evidence against you.

2.  Nothing

misunerstand01

It is something. It is definitely something and you had better figure it out real quick.

3.  I’m not upset

misunderstand20

She’s upset

4.  Do I look fat in this?

misunderstand02

A better translation would be “Do you think I’m ugly?” and the answer is categorically “no”.

5.  Do you have to do this now?

misunderstand19

Also not a question. It means stop doing what you’re doing and prepare for further orders.

6.  Go ahead

misunderstand03

Do not misconstrue this as permission. In fact, it’s more of a dare. Actually, its always a dare. Don’t do it.

7.  What are you doing?

misunderstand18

This is actually not a question. It’s a statement akin to “You’re doing it wrong.”

8.  No

misunderstand04

It means “no”.

9.  We can go anywhere you want

misunderstand16

In most cases this means “You had better choose my favourite restaurant”.

10. Yes

misunderstand05

In most cases this also means no. There are exceptions but they are very hard to distinguish.

11. Thanks a lot

misunderstand15

It’s a very small distinction but this is actually the opposite of “thanks”. Under no circumstances should you say “you’re welcome”. Typically that would land you back at #15 (Whatever).

12. It would be nice if…

misunderstand06

Everything following the “if” is meant to be interpreted as an unconditional order.

13. Thanks

misunderstand14

It means thanks. Say “you’re welcome”.

14. Fine

misunderstand07

This means the argument is over and you lost.

15. Whatever

misunderstand13

This is like “fine” except significantly worse. In fact, many times it will follow #18 (Are you listening?).

16. It’s okay

misunderstand08

It’s never okay. This only means that she needs some time to figure out your punishment.

17. 5 minutes

misunderstand12

This depends on context. If she is getting dressed then it is most likely somewhere between 30 and 40 minutes. If you are watching TV then it is closer to 0 minutes. As in “why are you watching TV right now when you should be doing something productive?”

18. Are you listening?

misunderstand09

You are not listening. There is no way to recover from this.

19. *Loud sigh*

misunderstand11

You might not think so, but this is actually a word and it can roughly be translated as “I can’t believe I have to stand here and put up with your stupidity”.

 

20. It’s up to you

misunderstand10

If you think this means you have freedom to choose then you are very, very mistaken. A much better translation would be “It’s up to you…to select the right choice which I know but I am not going to tell you because you should know.” Making the wrong choice will usually result in an “It’s okay (see #16).

21. We need to talk

misunderstand17You’re dead.

Girls Night Out

girlsnightoutboo 

GIRLS NIGHT OUT

Two women friends had gone for a “girls night out.” They both were very faithful, loving wives… however, they had gotten a bit over enthusiastic on Margaritas at the Rio.

Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to pee, so they stopped in a cemetery. One had nothing to wipe with so she decided to take off her panties and use them. Her friend, however, was wearing expensive panties and didn’t want to ruin them… luckily she had squatted next to a grave that had a fresh wreath with a ribbon on it… so she proceeded to wipe with that.

After the girls completed their “business” they continued toward home.

The following day, one of the husbands was concerned that his normally sweet and innocent wife was still in bed and hung over. He phoned the other husband, and said “These girls nights out have got to stop! I’m starting to suspect the worst! My wife came home with no panties!”

“That’s nothing!” said the other husband, “mine came back with a card stuck to her butt that read:

“FROM ALL OF US AT THE FIRE STATION… WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!”

House Looks Normal From Outside But Step Inside And OMG Purple

This house looks totally normal from the outside but once you step inside the purple is so overwhelming.  I like the colour purple but this is just too much.

Looking at it from the outside, you’d never know what hides behind the walls. Sure, this four-bedroom home in Middlesex, U.K. is beautiful, but unassuming.

People from all over the world were shocked when the home was put up for sale, and pictures of the interior were released. Purple EVERYWHERE!

In Europe, since the time of the Tyrian purple worn by Roman Emperors, purple has been the color most associated with royalty. It is still used by the British Royal Family and other royalty in Europe as a ceremonial color on special occasions.

In Europe and America, purple is the color most associated with vanity, extravagance, and individualism. Among the seven major sins, it represents vanity. It is a color which is used to attract attention. The carpet going up the bathtub walls is a humorous touch…

In parapsychology, people with purple auras are said to have a love of ritual and ceremony.

Garish or gorgeous? You decide. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder…

The estate agent said the interior has a “family-inspired design” that was maintained at the highest standard.

A potential buyer was reportedly lined up to buy the property, but no word as to who lives there now.

On the outside, the only hints of purple appear in the bundles of decorative lilac flowers.

Fears Only Tall People Understand

We all know that short people might have some challenges because of their height but tall people experience more than a few every day fears as well because of their height too.

1. Wrong Clothes

Finding shoes and clothes to fit you is such a chore when you’re tall. It can be expensive to buy. Also it’s time consuming to find things that will fit you and not be too short or hurt your feet.tall-people02

2. Bending down

Holding a conversation basically means you have to look down on someone. Literally. Bending down or craning your neck to be at eye level is not fun.tall-people043. How Tall Are You

You might as well have a name tag with your height on it. People never ask your name, just your height.tall-people064. Desks

The most dreaded enemy of all tall people is the classroom desk. It’s basically a cramping prison for tall people.tall-people08

5. The Weather Joke

Being asked the dreaded weather question, “How’s the weather up there?” I’m sure every tall person has heard this question enough times to take up a career in meteorology. It’s not funny anymore.tall-people10

6. Small Door

Walking into a room and the doorway is too low. Knocking yourself out in a doorway can be pretty embarrassing. Also having to bend every time you pass through that doorway.tall-people01

7. Airplane Seats

Without enough legroom, cramping is inevitable for every airplane ride. You may have to spend more money and upgrade to first class.tall-people03

8. Basketball Skills

People will assume that you are awesome at basketball. Just because you are the same height as Shaq doesn’t mean you can dunk like he can. A lot of tall people can barely make a layup.tall-people05

9. Finding A Mattress

Finding a bed that will fit your height is next to impossible. Normal mattress stores do not carry extra long mattresses, so online is one of the only options is you don’t want your feet hanging over the edge.tall-people07

10. Being in the way.

Nobody wants to sit behind a tall person at the movies or other events. Sure, you can see perfectly well, but you might get complaints from the less vertically gifted people who are behind you.tall-people09

11. Hugs

Hugging can be difficult too, especially when your partner is sooo much taller or shorter than yourself. You don’t always line up the best.

32 Essential Toys Every ’80s Preschooler Had

If you were a preschooler back in the ’80s…these 32 essential toys might just bring back some fond memories for you.

 

1. Glo Worm

Glo Worm

With it’s soft body design and light-up head, Glo Worm was the perfect preschool kid toy. I mean who else was going to protect you from the monster that lived under your bed? Definitely not the Fisher-Price Little People!

2. Fisher-Price Gas Pump

Fisher-Price Gas Pump

Fisher-Price made the perfect toys to introduce us to the real world, and yes, that apparently also included how to pump your own gas.

3. See ‘N Say Farmer Says

See 'N Say Farmer Says

Seriously, where would society be without this perennial favorite?! I mean it taught us that the cow goes “moo”!

4. Fisher-Price Record Player

Fisher-Price Record Player

This was probably the first sound system you ever owned — which of course you used to play your Read-Along Book records on.

5. Colorforms

Colorforms

These toys had no business being as fun as they were, essentially they were just reusable stickers. But maybe it was the perfectly cartoony design or the simplicity that had us coming back to play with it? Actually, scratch that, it was the addictive plastic smell that had us hooked.

6. Fisher-Price Medical Kit

Fisher-Price Medical Kit

Let’s be honest, the only thing you really played with in this kit was the stethoscope. But, bonus, the kit did also make a good storage case to carry around other toys!

7. Gumby

Gumby

During the 1980s Gumby had a huge revival, and this stretchy/posable figure was the perfect toy for little kids, as it was virtually indestructible. The one drawback was that, yes, you could eventually pull him apart and expose the wires that made him so darn posable, and maybe poke an eye out.

8. Mini Piano

Mini Piano

This toy provided exactly 20 minutes of fun before you got bored and moved on to another toy — that is, unless your parents got tired of hearing the annoying beeps and took it away before you had a chance to finish playing with it.

9. Mickey Mouse Talking Phone

Mickey Mouse Talking Phone

What kid didn’t want to talk to Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck? Sure, they didn’t say anything other then their name, but still you got a Disney character on the phone and it didn’t cost your parents two dollars a minute — looking at you, He-Man.

10. Sit’ n Spin

This thing was a basically a step above playing with an empty box, cause it didn’t do anything other than spin, but somehow, it still provided hours of entertainment.

11. Care Bears

Care Bears

The Care Bears ruled the ’80s, and you want to know why? Because they were created by the greeting card company American Greetings, who pushed them on unsuspecting parents and grandparents, and guilted them into buying them as an “I love you” gift. Plus, their soft bodies and pastel colors made them irresistible to little kids.

12. Fisher-Price Family Farm

Fisher-Price Family Farm

Aside from the Little People, the biggest seller here was the animals. Every little kid wanted to play with farm animals!

13. Fisher-Price Music Box Teaching Clock

Fisher-Price Music Box Teaching Clock

This longtime favorite was supposed to teach you how to tell time, but in reality, it was just fun to wind it up and watch it turn from day to night.

14. E.T. Vinyl Doll

E.T. Vinyl Doll

How big was E.T.? It was like Frozen x The Lion King plus a million. Seriously, it was huge, and of course had a natural appeal toward little kids, which made this vinyl doll (which felt so creepy to touch) a must have.

15. Poppin’ Pals

Poppin' Pals

This toy was probably more for babies than preschoolers, but its pop-up action made it lots of fun to play with.

16. Smurfs Play Camera

Smurfs Play Camera

This toy was a double winner, not only was it a play camera (allowing you to feel oh so grown-up), but it was also Smurf-themed. SMURF-THEMED!

17. Monchhichis

Monchhichis

Let’s be honest, these were more creepy than cute, but that catchy jingle for the commercial made you want one of these, badly.

18. View-Master

View-Master

Another perennial favorite that while simple provided hours of fun.

19. Fisher-Price Cash Register

Fisher-Price Cash Register

I don’t know if this was supposed to teach you how to use money, but I do know that the biggest appeal of this toy was popping that drawer open.

20. Tree Tots Family Tree House

Tree Tots Family Tree House

This little house was perfectly designed to capture your imagination. It was a tree that with the push of a button (on the top of the tree) revealed a three-room house, that came complete with an elevator, staircase, swing, and garage.

21. Rub-A-Dub Dog

Rub-A-Dub Dog

This toy pulled double duty. It was not only a bath toy, it was also a sponge (not a very good one, but still).

22. Fisher-Price Little People Play Family House

In the ’80s, the Little People upgraded themselves to some pretty posh homes (blame the yuppies?). Yes they were the exact same house, but most kids were either Team Yellow Roof or Team Tudor House.

23. My Buddy and Kid Sister

You know why you wanted one of these dolls? Because of the jingle from the commercial, which probably still lingers in the deep recesses of your mind.

24. Fisher-Price Tape Recorder

Fisher-Price Tape Recorder

This had one huge advantage over the Fisher-Price Record Player: IT COULD RECORD YOUR VOICE!

25. Snoopy Sno-cone Machine

Snoopy Sno-cone Machine

No hot summer day was complete without this classic toy. Sure, it took all your preschool body strength to get three slivers of ice slushy, but all that hard work made it taste extra good.

26. Fisher-Price Magic Burner Play Stove Top Range

Fisher-Price Magic Burner Play Stove Top Range

OK, so this probably gives you chills ‘cause it looks like the hot plate you had in college, but back in the ’80s this bad boy wasn’t just a pretend stove, it was a pretend stove that also lit up red!

27. Sweet Pickles Bus

Sweet Pickles Bus

OK, so this wasn’t a toy, but it was shaped like a bus and had a sticker that featured all the characters on it — which for fans of the book series made it an immediate toy (since no tie-in toy line was ever produced for it).

28. Little Boppers

These were basically like those dancing flowers that moved to music, expect they went one step further and actually moved around and danced. Yup, DANCED!

29. Speak & Spell

Speak & Spell

These really weren’t designed for preschoolers, but all those buttons and the voice action made them an irresistible toy to little kids.

30. Popples

Popples

Popples was one of the only toys that was perfect for both playing with and napping with.

31. Fisher-Price Parking Ramp Service Center Parking Garage

Fisher-Price Parking Ramp Service Center Parking Garage

This was the ultimate Little People play set (sorry, airport), mainly because you could race the cars down the ramp (with the Little People riding them), but the crank elevator also had its appeal.

32. Big Wheels

Hands down the best toy a preschooler could hope to get and play with. Sure, you probably fell off this thing more times than you could remember, but it really was your first taste of freedom and playing like a big kid.

So how many of these did YOU have or at least play with. Let me know in the comments. Thanks!
