80's toys, retro holiday gifts

Cabbage Patch dolls, Care Bears and the Rubik’s cube –they were THE hottest toys in the 1980s. But there are plenty of other “totally rad” holiday presents you might have forgotten about. So hold onto your Teddy Ruxpin because the ghost of Christmas Past is taking you back to the awesome 80s!
