At one point in our lives, we watched toy commercials on TV (and now tablets), and begged our parents to buy them for us. You weren’t cool in school if you were the only one without the newest toy.

You probably cut up some newspaper or magazines and pasted it onto a piece of paper as your wishlist, and honestly speaking, this letter was probably never even opened. But, hey, you tried. Join the Youth Channel in “YC Weekly: Toys” to hear about the old toy fads.
