There are things from your childhood that you will just never forget. You probably still remember that one year when you had a fancy Batman birthday cake when you turned eight years old. You, of course, can still recall all of your pets’ names even decades after they have passed. And you can recollect all of your favourite childhood toys and how you used to play with them for hours on end. However, those toys may be evolving slightly into something new and different. Here are a few playthings from your younger days that are getting a makeover.
The first generation of Transformers was pretty amazing. After a year or so, you knew all of the characters’ names, had their toys, could transform them in mere seconds, and watched the cartoon every chance you got. But ever since that first-generation came around in the early eighties, there have been about 15 to 20 attempts to evolve them even further. Still, if you ask most grown men, nothing will beat the original.
We can still all remember playing Nerf football out in the yard or Nerf basketball in our bedrooms from back when we were much younger. We even broke out the Nerf guns every now and then and had Nerf wars as we raced around both inside and outside the house. To say it was simpler times would be understating it. Not long ago, Nerf added another dimension to their items. It is time you discover a crossbow Nerf gun. Your childhood may be long gone, but the Nerf crossbow will have you back at the toy store and purchasing your own.
The first remote-controlled toy you might remember was one that had a wire tethered between the item and the remote control. It made it very inconvenient as you had to be right next to the toy the entire time. After a while, the wire disappeared and you were left with more freedom. You could have that toy vehicle flying around corners in your house or up and down your street. Now, it has evolved even more as the technology allows the users to be hundreds of feet away and controlling their item with a powerful remote control that can stretch for a good amount of distance. On top of this, for many remote-controlled vehicles, there is a camera built-in so you can have the view of the item while travelling. What will they think of next? Is GPS the next part of the evolution?
