What girl doesn't love toys of the 1980s? (Never mind my bias, having been a kid in that decade :) I always get excited when I see comeback versions of Strawberry Shortcake and My Little Pony merchandise in stores. (Has anyone else noticed Strawberry Shortcake's new glamorous long hair?) Rainbow Brite was my favorite (I had the Color Cottage, Starlite, Buddy Blue . . . ). So, when I went on a 1980s toy-themed treasure hunt on Etsy, I was charmed to find this dazzling selection. Whether you were the kid playing with them or the mom or grandmom buying them, what was your favorite 1980s toy?

Remember that rainbow chain you asked me about? Well it was along the lines of this jewellery. I LOVE JEM!!!! And I bought little care bears charms and am after rainbow brites to make a retro 80s toy charm necklace. I'm definitely checking this stuff out.

Yep, I do. I can't wait to see it all glammed up with Care Bears and Rainbow Brite dolls!
