Ten Classic Collectibles We Were Obsessed With At School

Last updated:

Every generation has its toys and games that were utterly addictive and the more collectible they were the bigger the craze at school.

The 80’s and 90’s were no exception and they gave us some of the most collectible items ever to hit the playground.

From card games to plastic toys let’s take a look at ten of the most collectible items we played with at school.

Mini Boglins

Mini Boglins were, of course, the small collectible versions of the Boglin hand puppets but they were infinitely more collectible.

They came in packets so you never knew which one you were going to get which made buying them exciting and frustration, especially if you only needed one to complete a tribe.

The Mini Boglins came in 12 different themed tribes each with their own chief.

You had The Clumsies, The Freaks, The Greedies, The Jokers, The Rude Dudes and the Tough Guys which were the original six tribes.

More tribes were added as well as new colours and the super rare Silver, Gold and Slimy ones.

Micro Machines

Micro Machines were a part of every kid’s life in the late 80’s and 90’s.

In case you don’t know, Micro Machines were tiny replica cars that were totally unique in their style and design.

They came in packs of three and there were a huge number of different cars, planes, spacecraft, boats and army vehicles to collect.

Once you had a decent size collection you could get an awesome lorry shaped carry case for them as well as city playsets that could be joined together to make vast play areas.

There were so many that only the most dedicated collector could ever get them all and with new series being added all the time between 1987 and 2016 it would be a serious challenge.
