Message from Dr Toy

"Classic toys" are long-lasting toys that "keep on playing". They are also updated, improved, and continue to please young and older players.

We are always searching for lasting favorites of all children. We also found some excellent new updates of classic toys. Parents need to balance children's play experiences between traditional and high tech, to be reminded that classic, highly beneficial toys are available. Parents will quickly recall the fun they had with classic toys.

Dr. Toy's Best Classic Toys, includes fun, skill building, high play value toys. Our Team carefully evaluates and selects the best products. "Classic toys are enduring and have many important benefits. They encourage the child's interaction, involvement, and are truly child-powered." A wide-variety is included among this year's winners. The list reflects toys that "are perfect for all ages, abilities, and interests from baby to older children, teens, and adults, from low to high tech, and from nature to nurture."

Classics are the 'basics' that never go out of style. "Classic toys are toys you return to from your own childhood. Traditional toys endure and continue to stimulate play." If you are at a loss for an appropriate toy for the child in your life, the suggestions found below in the Dr. Toy's Best Classic Toys will help you to easily locate valuable products with pertinent information. These toys have met the "test of time". They have endured, entertained, and satisfied young and old for many years, and will continue to do so for a long time.

"More playtime for all!" is Dr. Toy's "Rx" for children and adults.
