The website WhatToDoWithTheKids.com recently asked experts in the toy and game industry for a list of classic toys and games that every child should play with, those things a childhood shouldn't be without.

A few interesting things about the list:

  • There was quite a bit of overlap with what the experts suggested and what parents thought were important toys in a survey taken a few years back. Clearly, parents intuitively understand what their kids should play with!
  • Not one of the toys or games had a screen attached to it.
  • Very few of the toys and games needed batteries.

So here it is -- top 10 games and toys your kids should be playing with:

1. LEGO

2. building blocks

3. dolls

4. Scrabble

5. Monopoly

6. jump rope

7. Chutes & Ladders

8. assorted balls

9. Chinese Checkers

10. jigsaw puzzles
