Throwback: Top Irish Christmas Presents Through The Years

Throwback: Top Irish Christmas Presents Through The Years

With exactly a month until Christmas eve, we decided to get all nostalgic and find out the top Christmas presents through the years.

When you were young there was literally no better feeling than waking up on Christmas morning and running down the stairs at an ungodly time and playing with all your toys. There have been a myriad of top toys over the years that probably caused our parents to have heart palpitations and have to take out a second mortgage with the expense.

From Polly Pockets to Slinkys, Action Man to Barbie and scooters to kickers, we've compiled the ultimate Christmas presents from your childhood.

 

1. Mr Frosty

This was the one toy I always wanted but never got. It involved making your very own slushies using a snowman like contraption. I'm still pining for one.

2. Super soakers

Everyone on the road would fear you during the summer months with one of these bad boys.

3. Slinkys

Slinkys were crap and I don't know why anyone would want one, they would always stop after two tries and never make it all the way down the stairs.

4. Bratz

These freakishly big-headed dolls were the 'in' thing in the early 2000s. All four characters Sasha, Jade, Yazmin and Chloe were always the coolest dolls around.

5. Furbies

Furbies were HUGE. Looking back their creepy language and constant talking was one of the weirder aspects of the toy.

For every lad out there, a goal post was always a top priority on a Christmas list.

This was the best thing to come out since sliced bread. You could listen to 15 second clips from NSYNC and that was a HUGE deal.

18. Moon shoes

The hack of those things. They were awfully crafted trampoline shoes that made more noise than a child with an airhorn.
