Kids' Toys You Secretly Love to Play With

Hasbro.com

Okay, I'll admit it: My name is Kate, I am 25, and I love playing with Play-Doh. When I used to babysit, I'd always suggest it and hope the kid would be up for it. That, or coloring books. There's something very satisfying about selecting just the right color (Cerulean or Cornflower?) from a fresh pack of 64, the Bentley of crayon packs. The sharpener in the back really put it over the top.

Turns out I'm not alone. In an informal office poll, other Parenting.com staffers ‘fessed up to the kiddie stuff they actually like to play with, including:

Silly Putty
Slinkys
Jack-in-the-Box
Hot Wheels
Puzzles
LEGOs
Mr. Potato Head
Etch-a-Sketch
Barbie
My Little Pony
Clue
"Those gummy things you get in quarter machines that you slap against glass and they stick to it..."
