The Greatest Toys of All Time

by Christopher Paul on February 24, 2011

Time has come out with the greatest 100 toys of all time. There are some classics in there like the Radio Flyer Wagon and Slinkys, toys of my generation like Transformers and He-Man action figures, and the popular ones from the last ten years like Bratz.

Looking through the complete list, I can’t find anything that I disagree with. It’s a pretty good trip back into your youth.

If Bratz are on there I totally disagree. Any child's toy that has a doll wearing thongs is not great in my book by far…. Definitely want to check out the rest of the list though, i love things like that.

Well, they were wildly popular. I don't disagree with your assessment of the image they portray but I don't think the list was intended to make a moral distinction. Otherwise, you can remove Barbie from the list. Also, the toy guns wouldn't be on there because the only thing that's worse than dolls creating a bad role-image for girls to look up to is the glorifying of violence and disassociation of gun play with death.
