We love getting nostalgic, don't we? I'm sure most of us would love to go back in time and be kids again.

Simpler Times

What were some of the best things about being a kid? -- Saturday morning cartoons? Not having to work? Picking on our brothers and sisters? Cereal?



All of those things were great, but I think one of the fondest memories I have as a child is using my imagination and playing with toys.


The Most Popular Toys?

Have you ever wondered what the most popular toys were in North Dakota? How about the country? If so, you're in luck; Wishlisted gathered data from The Toy Association, and other major retailers to see which toys were the most popular, over the past 50 years. Not only that, but they looked at search data to see which ones were still popular today.

Here's what they found:

There You Have It

Those are not only the most popular toys in North Dakota, but these toys still reign supreme throughout the entire country.


I'm surprised I didn't see the Gameboy come up and/or the PlayStation. Not only that, but Bratz Dolls DOMINATED when I was a kid. Betty Spaghetti, Beanie Babies, Polly Pocket, Bop Its, Easy Bake Ovens, Marvin's Magic Drawing Boards...  -- as I'm naming these things, I'm starting to question the person who made this list.

In any case, this is what was found.
