Spotlight On: Classic Toys

President Jimmy Carter declared Grandparents Day a national holiday back in 1978 – and we’ve been honoring Gram and Gramps annually ever since. This year, we’re toasting them with a slew of nostalgic, classic toys – a testament to the fact that sometimes, the simple stuff is best.

1. Made for little ones learning the basics, this wooden guitar will carry them from their first chord to the day they graduate to a Gibson. (Expect plenty of sing-alongs along the way.)

2. Nothing says classic like a set of blocks, and this one – emblazoned with numbers, letters, and sweet little objects – is meant to be passed down from generation to generation.

3. With chrome accents, a working steering column, and rubber wheels, this metal race car is pure nostalgia on wheels. Best of all? There’s no need to box it up once playing’s done. Unlike modern-day plastic cars, it’s ready – and eager – for front-and-center display.

Our Schylling Classic Toys Boutique opens Sunday, September 9, at 11AM ET.
