Featured Artwork inspired by Chia Pets! “Chia Monsters” by Arlymone
God I miss the 90s. Mostly Because I was a kid with zero responsibilities, just running around with my explorer’s hat on looking for bugs, digging up what I thought were mummies in my backyard, and playing “field scientist” with a plastic Fisher Price Microscope.
Childhood nostalgia definitely kicks in when I start to think about all my favorite toys that had something to do with plants, bugs, flowers, rocks, and science fairs. When toy nostalgia hits, I supercharge my memory bank and start web surfing like a mad woman!
This list was so fun to make, and I prefer to use artist renderings of toys or related artworks whenever I can. There’s a lot of classic science toy reboots available today too, which is so very tempting. I really do miss my toy chemistry set slides; you know, the ginormous pre-made ones. Anyways, comment below with any related toys or contribute a top favorites lists or guest post of your own!
