Top Toys of the Century
Toys have changed since we were kids. Instead of Atari, kids today have Playstation, Xbox and the Wii. Rather than Etch a Sketch, kids draw on an iPad. But some toys last a lifetime, or at least a century. The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis compiled a list of the top 20 toys of the century and you may be surprised what topped the list.
1. G.I. Joe
7. Cabbage Patch Kids
In July, the public was asked to weigh in on the ‘100 Toys that Define Our Childhood’. The list of 100 Toys was narrowed down to the top 20 from which the public was again asked to rank favorites. The final 20 toys are on display at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis through the end of the year.

As a kid I spent hours playing Super Mario Brothers, Asteroids and Pit Fall on Atari for hours. The Etch a Sketch and Rubik Cube also provided endless fun. What was your favorite toy as a kid?
