Songs About Toys

Time to take a brief stress break in the middle of your hectic day and think back to your childhood… of the simple little things in life that made you happy….. or made you smile….. that made everything right in your world….. if  only for that moment in time. The theme here is toys, usually meaning the toys of the past or “yesteryear”. Some of these songs look back on a particular toy with great fondness while others use the theme of toys to shed light on something completely different….. if you know what I mean. The only requirement here is that there is a toy mentioned by name or referred/suggested to in the title of the song….. even if it happens to have a ‘double’ or ‘alternative’ meaning. You’ll find a few of these to be real obscure but there are some fun ones here in the mix. Enjoy!
