Old School Toys: Retro Fisher Price Toys: Basic Fun

OH JOY! I have just stumbled upon something that is making my heart leap with gladness for all that is decent and good in humanity: Fisher Price has re-released the most popular items from its classic 1950's, 1960's, 1970's and 1980's Basic Fun ranges.

As a child of the eighties I happily played with hand-me-down toys from the seventies and sixties. As an adult I am sitting slouched in front of the PC, wearing the same band t-shirt I was spewed on in not half an hour ago, sleep deprived hands shaking as the caffeine takes control, tears of joy running down my emotionally overwrought and exhausted cheeks as I gaze upon the half forgotten but ever-so-friendly faces of my childhood.
