Bring Back Your Favorite Childhood Toys with Tin Toy Arcade

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Do you ever have moments when you are reminiscing about your chilhood and that very favorite toy you had that you played with ALL.THE.TIME? Or do you ever wish that favorite toy from childhood was around still so your own children could play with the ones you loved when you were young???

WELL NOW YOU CAN! is an online shop with many classic and vintage toys that can be hard to find and you will LOVE looking through their selection, reminiscing about all the great times you had with all the toys from your childhood AND you can buy them for your children and granchildren to enjoy!

I spent HOURS (it seems like!) looking through their awesome selection of toys. So many memories came flooding back and I was so excited to be able to share some of my favorites with my children!

And BEST OF ALL, the prices are really affordable so it won't break the bank to bring back your childhood!

Check out some of our favorite toys from Tin Toy Arcade (and now our children's favorites as well!!):


Watch the world’s tinest engineers dig tunnels, build roads and erect bridges in our Giant Ant Farm. Do you remember the classic green Ant Farm from Uncle Milton? Just place the special tunneling sand in the clear “underground” viewing area to set up your Ant Farm. A classic dime store science project from the mid twentieth century. A special retro gift!

This escape proof Live Ant Habitat was invented in 1956 by Milton Levine at a 4th of July Picnic. The Toy Industry Associate honored the Ant Farm as a Toy of the Century!

My children LOVE bugs, collecting them and watching them, so when I saw this Ant Farm, I knew it would be a hit AND IT WAS!!! They LOVED watching the ants crawl around, eat food, and make tunnels!



It's the Pocket Size Etch A Sketch in the original 1960 gift box! With its famous red and black case and 2 white drawing knobs our Etch A Sketch is a unique, classic toy and a member of the Toy Hall of Fame. The Etch A Sketch was invented by Arthur Granjean in 1959 and introduced by the Ohio Art Toy Company for Christmas 1960. A very special portable gift for artists, toy collectors and low tech toy fans!

Etch A Sketch was an important actor in Pixar’s classic Toy Story. How would Woody and Buzz draw their plans without their talented friend, Etch? Classic Etch A Sketch is the low tech grandfather of the iPod Touch and tablet computers!

This is a great toy for the car, home, or anytime your children need to sit quietly. They can use their imagination to make ANYTHING and this is one classic toy I loved when I was young! I am so happy to introduce it to my children!



The world’s only instant pet, Sea Monkeys! Our Ocean Zoo Kit contains everything you need to make an aquarium of fascinating animals. Just add water in the red plastic tank plus the the packets of Instant Life: Water Purifier, Instant live eggs and Sea Monkey Growth Food. Instructions and Facts about Sea-Monkeys are included.

Sea Monkeys were discovered and first sold by Harold von Braunhut in 1957 as “Instant Life”. Braunhut also invented other wierd toys like the popular “X Ray Glasses” of the 1950’s. Some say Sea Monkeys are alien to earth, but scientists say they are actually a varient of brine shrimp that are in cryptobiosis or suspended animation!

This was a hit for my children! They loved learning about Sea-Monkeys and feeding them!



Our Mars Space Squirter water gun has a cool retro RayGun look. You can see the squirting mechanism inside of the clear blue water gun while you shoot 2 dual streams of water at once. Our futuristic water gun is inspired by the famous Hollywood Space Hero ray pistols and the Japanese Ray Guns of the 1950-1960's. Collect all of our Space Squirters and futuristic water guns.

It's summer and there isn't much more fun than a water squirt gun fight on a hot day! My children have enjoyed using this squirter water gun many times already!



Do you remember playing with balsa wood airplanes? Our Retro Flyer Balsa Plane glides and does loops easily with its 8 inch wing span. This balsa wood toy features our happy robot logo and classic balsa palne details. The Retro Flyer is made in the USA just for TinToyArcade. Our package includes 1 gravity and wind powered flyer. At this price buy several and make a fleet for flying fun!

My son loved putting this together himself and watching it fly all around the house! It isn't very sturdy so I recommend being very careful (and buying several backup!!) :) They are definitely fun while they last though!

ONLY 98 cents each!
