As kids throughout the world wait expectantly for a Nintendo Wii, it seems a good time to look back at the toys we wanted as kids with TV Cream’s Toys: Presents You Pestered Your Parents For.

The book celebrates the toys and games that turned up under the tree in years gone by – from Big Trak to Buckaroo, Mastermind to Merlin, Sorry to Strawberry Shortcake and the likes of Subbuteo, Simon, Evel Knievel, Etch-A-Sketch, Rubiks Cube and many more too numerous to mention from the 1960s to the 1990s. Each is accompanied by details and anecdotes, as well as images and eBay values.

Part nostalgia, part reference book, it is available in hardback for £5.19.
