We can’t be the only ones who see a kid driving by in their Power Wheels and instantly feel jealous. Yes, we drive real, big cars. But for some reason, it’s just not the same as the pink Barbie Power Wheels or the Jeep. Why, oh why can’t we fit in them??? Check out these other kids’ toys that we really, really want as our own.
#9 Giant Sit-N’-Spin: Can you imagine a few drinks and a spin on this? (Actually, nevermind, I’d totally throw up.)
#8 Pirate Ship Clubhouse: Where Mommy and Daddy’s ‘friendly’ times could take a far more interesting spin.
#7 Power Wheels Anything: I never got one. I want one now.
#6 Nerf Guns: Boss wants to keep you late? NOPE. Someone at the gym wants your treadmill? NOPE.
#5 Slip-N-Slide: Parents and frat boys agree: Why isn’t there an adult version of this yet?
#4 Bounce House: See No. 5.
#3 Ball-Pit: Reward for the end of a vicious and bouncy workout. Plus, the adult version would have way less months-old dried pee!
#2 Laser Tag: Because I liked “Star Wars” way before my teen started bringing all his nerd friends around.
#1 My own iPad back: Please? For one minute?
