The Best Toys of all Time

IS THE FURBY ONE OF THE BEST TOYS OF ALL TIME?


Recently, "Good Housekeeping" came out with a list of the BEST TOYS of all time. Here's a brief rundown of their selections:


--The Teddy Bear (1906)


--Doggie on Wooden Wheels (1921) (--That's the wooden dog that had wheels instead of legs. Kids would pull it around by a long cord, and the spinning of the wheels made the dog's tail wag.)


--The Scooter (mid-1920s)


--Mickey Mouse (--WALT DISNEY created the character in 1928. But it wasn't until 1935 that Disney released its first, 12-inch Mickey doll.)


--The Dollhouse (early 1940s)


--LEGOS (1947)


--Walkie Talkies (1951)


--The Toy Telephone (1954)
