Toys Kids Actually Play With

Posted September 14, 2015 - 10:23pm

What toys do your kids have that they actually play with on a regular basis and don't end up forgotten at the bottom of the toy box?

For my son it was anything Lego, especially Bionicles. For my daughter, Barbies of course. Some things never change.

Legos and Barbies get played with very routinely in our house too.  What I find really funny though is my younger two play with the happy meal figurine toys almost every day too. Another popular one is kitchen sets.


Yes, pretend toys like dolls and legos. Though they were a little slow to warm up to the lego thing. Now they build together.

Oh and trains are big with boys, a doll house, bikes, hula hoops, swings, jump ropes, kaleidascopes, playing cards.

My post above was posted in the wrong place I wanted it in the classic toys but cannot delete it.

Legos, match box cars, and art supplies get the most use around here.


Match box cars will be around forever! My son liked them and now my 4 year old nephew loves them. 


Oh, yes.  Art supplies.  My oldest daughter has never really been into toys but she loves her art projects!


It used to be Legos but not in the past year or so. Now, it's more technology and his bike. He isn't as much into toys but still likes puzzles.


For us it was Tonka trucks and construction vehicles and Groovy Girl and Barbie dolls.
