Sam’s Toy Box: Throwback toys

CHICAGO (WLS) — When you’re shopping for gifts for the kids this year you might end up taking a trip down memory lane.

Consumer Reporter Samantha Chatman it taking it way back to the 80s, and even the 70s, with toys that are making a huge comeback.

Toy expert Laurie Schact has spent several months trying out thousands of toys to come up with a list.


Timber Tots Tree House (Fat Brain Toys)

– The classic Timber Tots are back, reimagined with new colors, features, and accessories!

– Press the button at the top of the tree and – POP! – the whole thing opens up to reveal a cozy little home hidden inside.

– There’s a fireplace, a living space, and plenty of furniture to make the whole place feel wonderfully inviting.

– Take the elevator down to the roots and step outside where there’s a tree swing, a shrub with a secret hiding spot, and a car for taking critters to town.

– But the best part – All the included critters and accessories can be stored inside the treetop and the whole thing snaps shut, ready to be carried away wherever you go!
