'80s holiday gifts

Retrofaze has a fun list, with art, of the 20 best toys a kid could have gotten for Christmas in the 1980s.

Not all of these are on my personal list, but this is still awesome and fun to read through.

We totally need Sit N Spins and Big Wheels for adults, don't you think? Also, I had no idea there was a Daisy Duke-themed Big Wheel. Sweet.

I remember a friend of mine got a Speak and Spell and I thought it was the coolest thing. A talking computer!

My big toy was actually from '79; Big Trak. It turned out to be difficult to program and the little dumper thing never worked, but I thought it was cool. It's still at my mom's house, and still works. Kind of.

The Daisy Duke Big Wheel looks familiar, then again, I watch A LOT of TV as a kid.

Like the kid's going to let his little sister ride his Big Wheel! Right! :)

I was always bummed out because these came out when I was too old for them. I always thought that they looked so cool to ride!
