6 Classic Toys You Can Still Use Every Day
Just because you’re all grown up doesn’t mean you have to put away all the toys that made your childhood such fun. In fact, some of those very games, gadgets and gizmos may be just the things you need to help get you through adulthood.
Easy Bake Oven
Whether you’re hoping to cut down on gas or electric bills, find some means to cook in a tiny studio apartment or prove that you could live entirely on a diet of small round cakes, the Easy Bake Oven is the perfect appliance for adults who want to recapture their youth and barely reheat their leftovers.
Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine
Nothing crosses that line between childhood innocence and adulthood indiscretion like using beloved Peanuts characters to help make frozen margaritas. The Snoopy Sno-Cone Machine can also be used to make non-alcoholic frozen treats, which is great when you can’t secure a small business loan and are forced to operate a makeshift slushy stand in front of your house, competing with your own kids’ lemonade stand.
Looking to build an illegal extension to your house? Want to make instantly changeable though forever uncomfortable furniture? Hope to make your own knock-off version of a luxury sports car that’s way out of your budget? All you need is a little ingenuity and every single brick you had as a child, given that having to buy all the Legos you’d need today might cost you more than traditional lumber, sofas or a Porsche Spyder.
Cheaper than fueling a gas-powered car, easier than charging an electric car, slightly faster than walking the 20 miles to work every day, a Big Wheel is also an inexpensive way to pretend like you’re in “Sons of Anarchy” without having to deal with scary bikers, motorcycles or even the slightest chance that anyone will ever ride alongside you to form a “gang.”
Mouse Trap Game
A perfectly humane—if completely impractical and almost certainly ineffective—way to catch real mice in your home, the Mouse Trap Game can also be used to make a boring household chore like washing dishes exciting by stretching the tension over eleven hours, only for the marble to fall off the track and you have to start all over again.
No need ever again to go through the tremendous hassle of air travel, the expense of buying a movie ticket or the petty annoyance of stepping one foot outside. With age-old View-Master disks you can travel the world or see your favorite cartoons from 1978. You can also use it as night vision goggles, so long as you carry a very powerful flashlight or torch.
