We’re all about everything vintage and throwback, from a 1947 Château Gilette Doux to 80’s Madonna to the rad toys of our childhood. Luckily lots of toy brands are now marrying tried and true classics with modern style to create new gems that can be passed down and enjoyed for generations. So naturally, we think that classic yet modern toys are the ultimate route to go when you’re gift shopping for the littles in your life.
We’ve rounded up our top picks that pay homage to the past with a modern twist with these beautifully crafted, well-made, and durable toys. If shag carpets and crop tops can make a comeback, so can just about anything else.
