Teach Your Kids the 00s Ways with These Nostalgic Items

They don’t make toys like they used to, and many would say the noughties was the golden era of childhood dreams. Children nowadays will never know what it was like to grow up with Myspace, Hannah Montana or the Bratz. Yet, there are some Y2K toys that they can still appreciate today. Here’s how to teach your kids the 00s ways with these nostalgic items.
Silly Bandz
Silly Bandz are still available today from the likes of Amazon. They’re colorful rubber or silicone bands, which are shaped into different animals, numbers, letters and objects. Your kids will love to wear these fun bracelets each day, as they’ll have fun taking off their bracelet and wowing their friends when it reverts to its original shape. It’s a fun jewellery accessory to add to a child’s Christmas stocking!
Bratz Dolls
Bratz Dolls should never get old. They are ideal for children who love to dress up, as they can embrace their inner fashionista. Children are bound to pick their favourites between the five 10-inch dolls, known as Yasmin, Jade, Sasha, Cloe and Raya. Always following fashion trends, you can trust your child will want to own every outfit, and will have hours of fun watching the cartoon and movie.
Heelys
When is a pair of skates embedded into a cool pair of sneakers not cool? You can guarantee your little ones will love to strut their stuff with a trendy pair of Heelys, which never go out of style. Their friends are bound to want a pair from the moment they spot your fashion-forward child donning a one or two-wheel style. They even come with covers if you want to transform them into normal shoes and protect the wheel(s). Click here for more info.
Elf on the Shelf
One 00s toy that is becoming popular once again is Elf on the Shelf. This mischievous character will spark your child’s imagination, as it gets up to all sorts of naughty things while your child is sleeping or at school. They’ll love to find little notes from the Elf on the Shelf, who has left them tasks or has been up to no good within the home. It is a great way for parents to have a little fun with a child, while ensuring they embrace the Christmas spirit.
High School Musical
While it might be a little dated, there’s no reason why your child can’t embrace all the fun of High School Musical for the very first time. From the bad hair to the catchy songs, they’ll be smiling, singing, dancing and laughing from start to finish. With three movies to enjoy, you can guarantee they’ll love the cheesy lyrics, romantic plot and a young Zac Efron or Vanessa Hudgens.
Harry Potter

Harry Potter was all the rage back in the 00s and still is to this very day. Ensure your child falls in love with the magic just as much as you, and encourage your little ones to read the books and watch the movies. They’ll enjoy spending their days in the company of Harry, Ron and Hermione, and can even visit one of the many attractions across the world to become part of the experience. With JK Rowling having revealed more books centered in the Harry Potter universe, this fantasy won’t ever die out.
