Everything old is new again — even when it comes to toys, apparently!
Walmart recently dropped its hotly anticipated Top Toys list and let’s just say the nostalgia is real — especially if you’re a millennial or older Gen Z’er. From Barbies to Furbies (yes, seriously), there are so many cool toys from our youth that have been rebooted and revamped that my inner child is more than a little jealous that today’s kids get to enjoy these iconic and newly improved toys with fresh eyes.
If you have little ones of your own, you’re definitely going to want to buy these cool toys before they sell out. Your kids will love them, but let’s be real, you’ll probably want to play with them even more than they do! In all seriousness, these throwback toys will definitely foster some awesome cross-generational bonding between you and the kiddos, so don’t miss out while you have the chance to score them for Walmart’s everyday low prices.
Walmart also makes it easy to get all of this year’s hottest toys, whether you shop online at Walmart.com, in the Walmart app or at your local store. You can order any of these nostalgic toys online for delivery to your doorstep in as little as two days. (Or, if you’re a Walmart+ member, you could get them as fast as same-day at no extra charge.) You also have the option to place your order online for in-store or curbside pickup, when available.
That said, let’s throw it back to the late 1900s (as the kids say) and soak up all the nostalgia that these cool new-but-old toys are giving.
5 Nostalgic Toys That Are New and Improved for Today’s Kids
Nerf Elite 2.0 Double Punch Motorized Blaster
Remember the days of running around and launching tiny, spongey missiles at your friends? Well, your kids can double up on that nostalgic fun with this double-barrel Nerf blaster. It unleashes darts twice as fast and can blast as many as 20 in a row. Plus, it even comes with 50 Nerf Elite 2.0 foam darts to keep their arsenal stacked.
Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Mix & Learn DJ Table
The activity tables of our youth have nothing on this awesome baby DJ table! With 12 fun activities, three piano play modes and more than 100 learning songs and sounds, your little one will be ready to sell out the next hottest electronica festival (or at least fine-tune their fine motor skills in preparation for school). The legs are removable so babies as young as 6 months can play, and it has three Smart Stages that grow with them to teach colors, 123s, ABCs and more.
Razor Black Label E90 Electric Scooter
Gone are the days of accidentally slapping yourself in the ankle with your Razor scooter — because this baby is electric. It has a high-torque, maintenance-free motor that can reach up to 10 MPH so they can zip off to the park or their friends’ houses in a flash. With a thumb-activated throttle and foot-activated brake, it’s simple enough for kids as young as 8 to use. It also boasts a sturdy, all-steel deck and frame, has great traction and is easy to steer.
If this summer’s smash hit “Barbie” had you feeling nostalgic for the iconic dolls of your youth, you’re going to be downright jealous of this Barbie Dreamhouse that’s dreamier than ever. The bonafide crème de la crème of Barbie abodes, this three-story house allows for 360 degrees of play across its ten indoor and outdoor living areas. Your child can throw epic pool parties thanks to the three-story slide (the tallest in Barbie Land to date), plus a puppy slide and pool for Barbie’s pets. The set also comes with more than 75 accessories to really bring your little one’s imagination to life.
Furby Coral Plush
Whether you were obsessed with or mildly terrified by the Furby toys of the late ’90s, there’s no denying that the fluffy robotic toy has gotten way cuter over the years. (Just look at those lashes!) This brightly colored descendant of the Gremlin-esque Furbies of millennial youth is not only cuter, but smarter too. It responds to voice-activated commands for dancing, fortune telling, light shows and more. And, just like the original, Furby learns even more over time for ongoing fun and interactive play.
