You never forget the toys that you played with when you were a kid.

But, very quickly, those same toys often become obsolete and forgotten, superseded by new inventions from the crazy minds of toymakers.

If you have kids of your own, they probably have no idea of your childhood toys, so show them this excellent infographic, designed by toy manufacturer Sphero, which illustrates the likely toys that dads of a certain age would have had in their youth.

Even if you don't, it doubles up as a handy one-way route to a bit of nostalgia for those early years; take a peek below and click on the image for a larger version.
