Toys Make Great Christmas Gifts

Toys are great gifts

Toys are great gifts

Toys are on every kids Christmas wish list and I was no different. I stumbled upon this article and thought I would share my thoughts on it with you.  It is a 2011 Time magazine article that has a list of the greatest toys of all time.  It actually was the best from 1920 to the present but that is close enough I guess. 

Here are a few that I had as a kid listed by the decade they first appeared.

1920’s

  • Chemistry Set
  • Yo-Yo

1930’s

  • Finger Paint
  • Army Men

1940’s

  • Slinky
  • Little Golden Books

1950’s

  • Silly Putty
  • Paint By numbers
  • Wiffle Ball
  • Matchbox Car

1960’s

  • Etch A Sketch
  • Barrel Of Monkeys
  • Hot Wheels

1970’s

  • Nerf Ball
  • Simon

After the 1970’s I had outgrown the toy age but I must say the entire list is very cool and a good starting point for the kid on your list. My only question is where are Lincoln Logs?  I hope you enjoyed this walk down the virtual toy store.  Have a great week.
