A poll of 2,000 adults found 55 per cent would like to be able to relive their childhood, with the 60s, 70s and 80s seen as the best decades to have been a kid.
Not having to worry about money topped the list, while not having to work and building sandcastles ranked highly.

Meanwhile, 67 per cent said trips to the beach were some of their fondest childhood memories.

However, more than half like to maintain a childlike attitude in some aspects of their life – because it’s fun, it helps them see things from another perspective as keeps them curious and honest.
But 65 per cent confessed they no longer use their creative thinking and imagination to navigate life – sticking purely to logic instead.
Whoopi Goldberg ready t make acting return
'The View' host Whoopi Goldberg is reportedly keen to ditch the daytime talk show in favour of an acting return.The 65-year-old star - whose company Whoopi Inc. was recently named in a lawsuit and accused of helping to plot to bump a long-time developer out of a plan to revitalise West Orange in New Jersey - is said to be keen to "make some changes in her life" after more than a decade on the daytime talk show.
It also emerged that of the 65 per cent of respondents who have their own children, 84 per cent allow their kids to live as child-like a life as possible to keep the magic alive.
Playing games with them, encouraging them to ask questions and getting them to explore the outdoors were some of the top ways parents tried to keep their kids in a childlike mentality.
Interestingly, six in 10 reckon their childhood was better than the kids of today – because they spent more time outdoors, felt the world was safer for youngsters and they had more trust from their parents.
A spokesman for Osmo, added: “Children are naturally creative and love to explore their imagination – we strongly believe these traits should be fostered and celebrated.
“And the summer holidays draw to a close, we wanted to make some extra special memories by bringing imaginations to life in an even bigger way than usual.
