to me it´s the 80s.....even tho video games were invented in the 70s....the big developpment came in the 80s....and I love those games....do I think it´s best of toys for kids....not really...but the impact the 80s made on that business is huge

I voted for the 80's mostly because I lived it and remember the toys the best. I kind of feel the same way that Track does. But, I could have gone for the 1910 category too. My brother and I had all of those toys as Christmas gifts in the 70's. Raggedy Ann and Andy were my first ever Christmas gifts! I was 2 weeks old when I got them in 1974! But, my vote was for the 80's.

Not hard at all...

I voted for 1930-1939... most of the others (except for possibly Crayola crayons) are fad toys or decade specific items that wouldn't necessarily appeal to kids from other times (if a kid from the 1930's could even grasp the concept of Nintendo)... but Scrabble and Monopoly are timeless icons... as much beloved today as when they were first introduced.
