It's supposed to be the most magical time of the year, but for most of us, we're reassuring ourselves that whatever we've bought our kids will be loved and treasured (well, at least until the New Year!). Whilst we were thinking of the best present for your kids this Christmas, we got a little side-tracked and became very nostalgic.
Do you remember getting a slinky or Mr. Potato Head in your stocking on Christmas morning? Or perhaps, your folks bought you fun board-games, such as Guess Who, Monopoly and Operation? Was a Space-hopper, Atari or Easy-Bake Oven waiting for you under the tree? If so, you were very lucky come Christmas Day!
And let's not forget the toys we all begged our parents for, toys that became some of the biggest selling toys of our childhood. Hungry Hungry Hippos (1978), Rubik's Cube (1980), Cabbage Patch Kid (1983), Nintendo Gameboy (1989) and the Tickle Me Elmo doll (1996) are just some of the toys that will bring back happy memories to many parents.
But as we look to the New Year, we have to put aside the toys that brought us so much happiness and buy our kids the things their little heart's desire the most. This is where KIDO'Z could answer your prayers.
If you want to treat them to an extra special something this year, why not enter our Christmas Giveaway and be in with a chance to win a Lenco CoolTab-70 tablet. Our winner will be announced on Christmas Day!
At KIDO'Z, we've got many old school games for your kids to enjoy – and you too. Apps such as Speak and Spell, Copycat Simon and 1 to 50, which will take you on a trip down memory lane, as you show your kids how games used to be back in the "good old days!"
