History's Best Toys, Another Top 100

Back in December I wrote a post on  the top 100 gadgets of all time (1932 - present).  It was a great piece and brought back a lot of memories of my childhood.  Well Time Magazine is back at it, providing a list of the top 100 most influential toys since 1932.  Once again, the list is not a "Top 100" ranking.  It is more of a list of 100 top toys broken into decades.  Allie Townsend does a great job providing a description of each toy.  Can you find any of your favorites?  Anything missing?  What do you disagree with?  I think a "glow stick" is kind of a lame "toy."  The items from the 1970's and 1980's sure do bring back a lot of memories for me.  It is also interesting to see what is still around from the past.  I was just in Target today and I noticed a lot of "classic" toys back for today's youth.

I am working on a title for my March read of the month, hope to find one in the next few days.  Enjoy the snow! 


  1. Wow, that's serious nostalgia. I think I played with every toy in the 1980s list, either at my own house or at friends'.


  2. I love these lists....they sure bring me back. Do I sound old now :)
