Do you have toy nostalgia?


As the Toy Retailers Association released information about what toys would be on children's letters to Santa Claus this Christmas, BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast talked about toy nostalgia.

Presenters Nicky Campbell and Andy Verity's favourite toys growing up were the Action Man, while Shelagh Fogarty loved her Time Tell Tracy, a doll that would give you the time and tell you what the time was for. For instance, '1 o'clock, time for lunch'.

They spoke to Steve Berry, author of 'TV Cream Toys: Presents You Pestered Your Parents For' about toys that used to exist.

BBC Radio 5 live Breakfast is broadcast daily between 0600 and 0900 (0830 on Sundays) on 693 and 909 AM.
