Toy of the Decade Since 1900

Today, toy popularity can change drastically from day to day. The speed of contemporary product marketing makes it possible for a toy to be a celebrity today and a has-been tomorrow. 100 years ago, this was quite rare, and a single toy would often enjoy decades of popularity.

That is not to say that toys today can’t experience enduring popularity. The Rubik’s Cube is an example of a relatively modern toy that has been popular since the 1970s. Super Mario is another example. On top of that, kids don’t only want their favorite dolls and action figures. They also want the DVD, the video game and the mobile app that go along with them.

Retailers like Target, Macy’s and Best Buy know this implicitly and offer a wide range of toys so as not to miss out on sales from upcoming trends. Likewise, Couponbox offers deals and discounts on popular toy brands and the retailers that sell them for the same reason.

The history of toy popularity for the last hundred years is full of many twists and turns and it’s hard to predict exactly which toy will soar to popularity. But one thing remains constant: top toys will come and go, and the next toy star is always right around the corner.

Here is our outline of that popularity plus a beautiful infographic below:
