A daily look back at the toys, games, and objects that captured our attention as children and continue to fascinate us today.

Sidewinder from Parker Brothers (1994)

A dealer ad from 1994, showcasing the Sidewinder game from Parker Brothers. The object of the two-player game was to “zigzag” a series of marbles up a ramp and into your opponent’s tray. The first person to get rid of all their marbles won. Players could even adjust the ramps’ slope to increase the challenge or handicap one player.

Remember the toys and games of years past through vintage advertising – for better and for worse!
