Is there anything more crushing than when you buy your kid a toy that you loved as a child, and they just blow it off and go back to playing video games?

A recent survey by Very asked 2,000 parents to name the top old-school toys they wish their kids wanted for Christmas. As you can probably guess, the results are packed with low-tech toys.

"Toys are so important to a child’s development and education," said Andrew Roscoe of Very. "This can help set them up for the future and even spark a lifelong interest that can develop into a career path or hobby."

Here are the top ten:

  1. A bike.
  2. Puzzles.
  3. Board games.
  4. A teddy bear or stuffed animal.
  5. A ball, like a football or basketball.
  6. Building blocks.
  7. An art set.
  8. Modelling clay.
  9. Toy animals.
  10. A jump rope.
