Top 10 Things Meant for Kids but Can Also Be Enjoyed by Adults

The Top Ten
1 Cartoons

I'd say they're pretty well liked across age groups. Why else would they create an adult cartoon genre? The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad, Bob's Burgers, and South Park are all great.

Preferably the older cartoons that they watched due to nostalgia, although some prefer newer shows. I would enjoy a Tom and Jerry episode any day.

2 Disney Movies

They are intended more for children, especially the princess and Pixar ones. However, with how expanded Disney's arsenal is, there's truly something for everybody. There's a reason they bought a lot of other companies.

Pinocchio and Beauty and the Beast are some of those Disney movies I watch from time to time.

3 Building a Snowman
4 Amusement Parks/Theme Parks

Many think they're too old to ride merry-go-rounds, but that's not true. Many roller coaster riders are adults. Coasters can be hundreds of feet tall and go faster than a car on a road. They deliver forces that can make people of any age pass out or feel sick.

Simulators can be enjoyed by anyone, though Epcot's notorious Mission: SPACE has been known to make people very sick. Drop towers can be enjoyed by both kids and adults, though the tallest ones are usually the most intense.

5 Legos

Plenty of popular Lego YouTubers are adults. Unleashing your creativity is something you shouldn't restrict, and Legos are a good example of that.

I don't care who you are. You're never too old for Legos.

6 Breakfast Cereal

A lot of cereal boxes have cartoonish art on them, but they're enjoyed by many adults, particularly for their taste.

7 Coloring Books

My grandma uses some of these. It's a stimulating activity for most older folks.

8 Harry Potter Harry James Potter is the title character of J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. The majority of the books' plot covers seven years in the life of the orphan Potter, who, on his eleventh birthday, learns he is a wizard.

There are plenty of adults who especially enjoy Harry Potter media. The characters and the stories are what bring them in for years.

9 Nerf Guns

Let's admit that some of us still like to enjoy these things.

I remember we used to have Nerf gun wars in the college dorms until we got in trouble for it.

10 Pokemon Pokémon, abbreviated from the Japanese title of Pocket Monsters and currently advertised in English as Pokémon: The Series, is a Japanese anime television series, which has been adapted for the international television markets. It was first broadcast in Japan on April 1, 1997, in the United States... read more

Pokemon is one of those media franchises that has existed long enough that people in their 30s or even 40s enjoy playing the games. I can imagine myself being in my 20s and still enjoying collecting all the Pokemon.

I've grown out of the anime series a bit, but I still enjoy playing the games on Nintendo Switch and 3DS. I don't understand why people think it is only meant for kids.

The games, yeah. The anime is kinda awful.

The Contenders
11 Stuffed Animals

Yup, you heard me right. It's not uncommon to see adults storing stuffed animals on their shelves. Some people still sleep with them too. A 2017 study from Build-A-Bear says that forty percent of adults sleep with a stuffed animal to cope with anxiety.

12 Playgrounds

If you ask me what's the best place to contemplate, I'd say it's the swings.

13 Chocolate Milk

It's still my go-to breakfast drink.

We all enjoyed this as kids, but nothing is better than a good ol' chocolate milk.

14 SpongeBob SquarePants SpongeBob SquarePants is an American animated television series created by marine biologist and animator the late Stephen Hillenburg for Nickelodeon. SpongeBob is currently the most popular show on Nickelodeon, as well as the longest running show, running for 23 years, and is beginning its 13th season... read more

In my opinion, its humor still stands up today. There are many things that can be portrayed by SpongeBob, even the most serious. I remember when "We did it, Patrick! We saved the city!" was used to portray the Minneapolis riots.

It's one of those iconic cartoons adults can't seem to resist.

The first few seasons were SpongeBob at its best. Real ones remember the good days.

15 Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards
16 Non-Violent Video Games
17 Sand Pits
18 Minecraft

It's a game for all ages, after all.

22 Power Rangers Mighty Morphin Power Rangers is an American superhero children's television series that premiered on August 28, 1993, on the Fox Kids Network.
23 The Incredibles

Of kids' movies, this is one of the best at holding up for adults. It has a lot of great lines and a well-written story.

24 Wall-E

Watching it as a kid, I obsessed over some of the characters. Later, this gave me a huge perspective on how the world is heading and how people are conforming to a consumerist society. All of this is while successfully including a love relationship between two robots, something only a few movies can do. Out of all Pixar movies, this is one of the most exceptional as it brings a message that's increasingly relevant today.

25 Trick-or-treating

Even when I'm an adult, I'll still go trick-or-treating every year.
