    70s toys were much simpler than the modern toys you know today. Without having much technology available, kids had to entertain themselves with toys made out of simple design. But you’ll be surprised when you learn just how popular some of these gadgets were. From Atari 2600, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Spirograph, the Mouse Trap Game, Pong, and Mastermind to Weebles, Chatter Telephone, Pick Up Sticks, Stretch Armstrong, and Micronauts, these are some of the most popular 70s toys no kid would want to receive today!
    It’s hard to believe modern kids would even play with sticks for a very long time, but Pick Up Sticks were some of the most popular toys of the 70s. The concept of the game was simple, but it demanded complete focus that often resulted in a few tantrums. Wait until you see these 20 toys from the 70s no kid would want to receive today!

    Funny, about half of the "Toys From The 70s No Kid Would Want To Receive Today" are still made and sold.
    After reading some of the comments, this video should be named "One of the many videos on youtube made by someone that has no idea of what they are talking about".

    This kid does not know what she is talking about as most of these toys and games are still sold today and played with by kids ie rubbicks cube which is also one of the best selling toy, hungry hippos, boggle, mouse trap, spiralgraph, kerbangers, chatter telephone, stretch Armstrong with new variants. My son plays with them. I guess this kid didn't get toys.

    Rubik's cube and Mastermind boardgame locally to me is still sold to parents who's kids want to play them. Pong I will say that it tried an updated gameplay on the PlayStation 1 but obviously that was years ago.

    I was born in 2000, I played with a lot of these growing up. My dad had a bunch of his old toys in his basement along with toys from the late 80’s and 90’s from my sisters (who are 14 and 11 years older than me)
    I played with what they all played with when I was at my dads

    One that was left off this list: The Fisher-Price Jack-in-the-Box. It was the most depressing toy I ever received as a child. I hated it every time the puppet cried when I put it back in the box. It came out at about the same time The Guiding Light aired the most depressing theme--"La Lumiere" in G major--on TV (early-mid 1970s).

    The snarky cynicism expressed in this video made me stop less than half way through. And guess what... Literally just yesterday, my kids had a friend over, and at one point I told them they could play video games if they wanted, but they opted to play two board games: Sorry Sliders and Life.
    Believe it or not, it just isn't true that kids today *only* want the whiz-bang (over-)stimulus of video games. Plenty of kids want to play with physical things in the physical world.

    So, what you're saying is that any game that requires rubbing two brain cells together will be dumped because it's too much of a challenge. Good. Just what we need another generation with skulls full of mush.

    They would all be better off without the technology of today, they are becoming lazy and would not know what to do, not if but when, all satellite signals or eliminated and are left entertaining themselves with their own ingenuity.
    I grew up in the country, built forts out of dead wood, and branches, with a shovel and some elbow grease, most kids today would be looking for elbow grease in the cooking oil isle or automotive dept, a homeless person today could live in one of our forts.
    Using a phone without buttons and no redial, long distance was very expensive then so much per minute, and you had to talk your girlfriend in the kitchen with parents in the next room the phone chord was about 5ft. Long totally uncoiled, then only black and white TV with 2 channels that went off the air at midnight, with the national anthem signaling the end of the broadcast day, then only AM radio, eventually FM and LPs meaning albums but only if you had a record player, I had a state of art stereo Mustang 3 turntable myself with detachable speakers, badass for its time.
    Kids have no idea how to be creative without technology today.
    By the way any kid would be a damb fool to pass up on getting a real Rockum Sockum robot set today, the value is fairly significant for one in decent shape.

    Not ALL kids these days would frown at these toys and games. My youngest nephew has seen some of the toys I played with that were from the 70's and 80's and thought they were cool he even wanted some of them and was disappointed that they are no longer made. Sure some kids of today would laugh at how primitive our toys had been compared to the high tech toys of today but that doesn't mean they can't find them cool. Also, my youngest nephew has and loves his Rubik's cube!!! Mouse Trap is still available as well as Hungry Hungry Hippos and my nephew and niece love to play both of them. So in short, not every modern kid is gonna say they don't want these toys and some would be ecstatic to have some of them to play with.

    D&D is not a card game. It is literally a game of pure, if directed, imagination and, for those who understand what it is, it is unbeatable by even the most sophisticated video graphics. To be good at D&D is to tap into your own latent artistic and imaginative creativity. It is the MOST active game imaginable, and most other games are sad and passive by comparison.
