I can't tell you how many times I have wished this toy would somehow appear back on the shelves. Maybe not as a child, but certainly now as a parent. And once you realize it ever existed, I can bet you will too. Curious? Click through to find out more.

My dream comeback toy? The LEGO Brick Vacuum Cleaner.

Originally released in 1991, the LEGO Brick Vac came in three designs - basic, parrot, and bus. It worked by pushing down on the ground and rolling forward, to power the turnstyle that would pick up bricks from along the ground. Larger bricks and plates could not be picked up by the Brick Vac, but she can handle little pieces with ease.

Can you imagine how much time you could save with one of these things, picking up all those pesky tiny pieces that always seem to be left on the floor by little hands? Or is it just me that spends way too long dreaming about such things?
