Look at this amazing eighties nostalgia at ReStore

I am a 70s baby and 80s child, and these toys are pulling at my heartstrings. Champaign County ReStore has a Sesame Street playset ($60) with apartments and Mr. Hooper’s store and an E.T. toy, complete with storybook and VHS copy of the movie ($30). Iconic.

Follow ReStore on Facebook or Instagram to keep up with all of the cool stuff they have in their store. If you are spring cleaning and looking to donate, find out how on their website.

There are several Sesame Street character figures set in front of the playset. Photo from Champaign County ReStore Facebook page.Photo from Champaign County ReStore Facebook page.

A figure of E.T. (brown alien with a large head and eyes and a red heart painted on its chest) sits on a wooden table next to a book with the image of E.T. on it, and a VHS cassette tape of the movie. It has a blue cover and the image of a moon with a bicycle flying across it. Photo from Champaign County ReStore Facebook page. Photo from Champaign County ReStore Facebook page.
