Think of water balloons, hula hoops, and Legos. Others included Barbie, Mr. Potato Head, and Play-Doh. It was an experimental time, but the experiments paid off. The 60s were a time when children could release their creativity with toys such as their Etch-a-Sketch, Lite-Brite, and Easy-Bake Oven. They were also when the gender divide in toys became more strict. Girls played with Barbies and boys played with G.I. Joe. The 70s was a great time for action-figure-lovers. They could play with classics such as Star Wars and Strech Armstrong. The Atari 2600, one of the first in-home video game consoles, also came onto the scene. Simon used similar technology to create a fun, interactive toy. The 80s brought one of the first massive toy crazes with Cabbage Patch Kids. Parents would fight each other over the hand-crafted dolls. Other popular dolls included Teddy Ruxbin and My Little Pony. The Game Boy made portable video games available to a mainstream audience. The 90s brought another phenomenon with Tickle Me Elmo. Beanie Babies seemed like a valuable collector’s item at the time but died like a flash in a pan. Everyone was too busy tending to their Tamagotchi, and Pokemon was just beginning its meteoric rise.
