What are the most popular toys today?

What were your favourite toys as a child?

The toys I remember playing with most were My Little Ponies, Keepers, LEGO, farm animals and my bike. I did have quite a My Little Pony obsession at the age of about four years old. My dad challenged me to swim across the other side of the pool. If I did it, I could have a My Little Pony. I swam there and back and told him I now needed two! Genius right?

What are the toys that your children enjoy the most these days and how does that compare to what you played with as a child?

  • My little grandson wants a go kart and anything with wheels we can’t go wrong with he’s fascinated also with cars that open up he likes the engines so looking for an engine he can play with . I’ve seen something called a Tuff Tools Master Engine. He can take it to pieces and build it back up.
