A classic afternoon down in Tassie with my little nephew Eli brought back many childhood memories about my favourite toys.
We were in his backyard where he had a made a very impressive truck track for his favourite Tonka trucks. Ramps, tunnels, gas station and dumping ground – it was a full scale operation! Even with ipads and wii's these trucks were still number one.
It made me think of the toys that really are timeless.
Some like transformers with the receny film trilogy are indeed cyclical but which are truly timeless.
25 years ago – I would have been playing with my Tonka truck, my sister with her Barbie collection and my brother creating a Lego monstrosity.
So my question to parents – what are your kid's favourite toys today and are there some that you think will stand the test of time?
