I have two answers locked and loaded:
The Discovery Toys marble racing (definitely looks different than the 80s): http://www.discoverytoys.com/PWS/homeoffice/store/CORPAM/product/Marbleworks-Deluxe-Set,647.aspx
And a Cinderella dress from Disney World: https://www.disneystore.com/costumes-costume-shop-clothes-cinderella-interactive-deluxe-costume-set-for-kids/mp/1408921/1000396/
Both of these things were about $50 when I was 7 years old and my parents were NOT having it. Well, my dad probably would have bought the Cinderella dress for me, but my mom was not going to spend that money on something like that. I also wanted a Barbie Jeep but they wouldn’t buy me a riding toy that I didn’t have to do the work on.
I definitely survived without both, but I don’t hesitate to bring up the Cinderella dress whenever we’re at Disney ;)
