Do you love retro toys?  For me the sight of toys from my childhood immediately makes me nostalgic for the past.  Consequently I love the kids to play with my old toys where they can- from my old Barbie dolls to My Little Ponys (the new ones just aren’t the same!).  Luckily for me and other vintage toy enthusiasts Argos has a great event coming up next week for half term.  Read on to find out more:

From Monday 22 October leading toy retailer Argos will be transporting adults and kids alike into a world of toy-topia at its half-term toy exhibition, showcasing the nation’s favourite toys from the last 45 years as well as experts’ predictions for 2018’s most-wanted toys. Whether you were a Furby Fanatic or a Rubix Cube Raver, the Argos Toy Exhibition has something for every generation.

Take a trip down memory lane with 70s hits such as Strawberry Shortcake, the 80s wonder that was Lazer Tag, retro Furbys and Gameboys from the 90s, and noughties technology such as the Nintendo Wii on display. Whilst grown-ups will feel nostalgic about their favourite toys as children, kids will be drawn to the top toys of 2018 with hot toys like the Ride-On-Unicorn set to be headlining Christmas lists this year.

The perfect way to keep the kids entertained during the school holidays, parents can show and tell children their own toy story. Old favourites such as Polly Pocket and Lego may well still be top of children’s lists today.

When:                          Open between Monday 22 – Sunday 28th October
Where:                        Argos, 216-217 Tottenham Court Rd, Bloomsbury, London W1T 7PT
Nearest Tube:             Tottenham Court Road
How much:                  Free to attend

Juliet Ward, Head of Toy Buying at Argos, said: “Argos has been synonymous with toys for generations of families over more than four decades and we wanted to celebrate some of the best-loved and most popular classics from years gone by, as well as help parents find the must-have toys for this Christmas.  The Toy Exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to feel nostalgic and discover how toys have changed over the years.”
