Children’s eyes always light up when they encounter the toy aisle in a department store. Growing up, I’m sure you had a vast collection of toys in your toy chest, but what was your favorite toy?

According to TIME Magazine, these toys topped the charts from the 1970s through the 2000s.

"My stuffed animal dog that I named Puppy! He went everywhere with me. I still have him today!"


"Farm toys that I received as payment for sweeping out the tractor dealerships in Salem. I swept the shops on Saturday night and traded that for farm toys."


"My favorite toys were all my Tonka toys.  I moved a lot of dirt with them and now I’m operating the real heavy equipment.  A dream come true.  I also still have all my tonka toys."
