Many parents still have treasured toys from our youth. Some might have passed them on to their children's toy boxes, but for others, they sit in storage, a box somewhere in your closet, waiting for you to sneak another peek. Lucas Mongiello thinks they should be shared with the world; check out his cool displays for a little inspiration.

There's lots of things to consider these days about toys from our youth. Many were made in China, the paint is comprised of who knows what and so they probably aren't the most eco friendly choice for your kids. And, you might not also want any further destruction caused to your Gray Skull action figure that you've carried with you for so long.

Either way, this is a great way to display this small bit of your past for your kids so they can see Mom and Dad's old cool toys. Even if they're off limits, it's still a fun way to get them out of the shoe box in your closet and into your home for everyone to enjoy and further memories to be made with them in your home.
