Remember when life consisted of eating, playing, and sleeping? Somehow in our hectic lives as adults, playtime has gone the way of the dodo bird and, all too often, when we do relax, it’s spent in front of electronics. It’s time to start playing again! Playtime is essential for fueling imagination, creativity, problem-solving, and emotional well-being. What better way to play than with the classic toys of your yesteryears!
We are passionate about creating high-quality, classic toys that challenge children, teens and adults of every age to set aside their electronic devices and engage in active play. The emotional and relaxing benefits of bringing back playtime will carry over into your hectic work and family schedule! Better yet, kill two birds with one stone (sorry dodo bird) and enjoy playtime with your kids. Show your kids the toys you enjoyed playing with as a child and start making new memories!
So what makes a toy a true classic? We’ve determined a few star qualities for every classic toy:
Classic toys have withstood the test of time, survived every toy fad, and can be found in almost every household — toys like chess, checkers, jump ropes, and kites. They are simple in style and all-time favorites. For one classic toy option, we’ve upped the ante and made our KickFire Premium Delta Kites more durable than the kites from your younger years. They even come in cool styles with the option of ordering extra-long string too.
Toys that are simple in shape and consistent in response make great classics. The more we practice, the better we become! Toys like yoyos and juggling balls fit this criteria as there’s no luck involved as you progress – you earn the skills through practice and captivate the crowds with confident execution. Our KickFire Non-Responsive Ball Bearing YoYos and KickFire Hydras Juggling Balls are the ultimate classic toys with their time-tested ability to keep users engaged while working to improve skills and tricks. Our juggling balls and yoyos are some of our most popular toys because we’ve built them to stand the test of playtime.
While many toys can be played solo, there is an extra dimension of fun when you play as a group. Group games, including the age-old game of hacky sack, gets you away from your daily routine, builds relationships with others, relieves stress, and increases your physical activity. Win-win for a classic toy! You probably remember the crochet hacky sack balls from the 80s and 90s – well, we’ve improved the footbags with longer-lasting material and the perfect amount of sand filling in each of our KickFire HotSacks, StarSacks, and SuperSacks so everyone can enjoy the game!
Some toys are made for creating memories, and the KickFire Banded Bandit Rubber Band Gun does just that. You might remember having a homemade rubber band gun in your youth. Don’t worry, you don’t need to make one — we’ve got you covered there! So, start enjoying your favorite rubber band gun memories all over again! Trust us, they’re just as much fun at work as they are with your kids.
