Best Toys Of 2013: Updates On Your Favorite Childhood Playthings

One of the best things about being a parent is remembering the happiest parts of your childhood and being able to share them with your son or daughter.

Sometimes, it can be as simple as a recipe that has been handed down in your family for generations, or a silly bedtime tradition. Other times, it can mean bequeathing a beloved blanket, or hunting toy stores for that perfect bear you loved as a kid.

For this holiday season, give your kid an updated version of your childhood favorites. Check out the below slideshow, created in partnership with our friends at Duracell. Enjoy the look of glee on your child's face as you gift them the perfect toy, and don't forget the batteries!
