But before we get all smug and superior comparing ourselves with the younger generations, let's not forget that some of our toys were astounding duds.
Anyone remember Pet Rocks?
Yes, it was a rock with a face painted on it.
Or how about this?
Fake pets, fake fur, and now - Invisible Dog Leashs - I seem to be on a trend here.
But my final offering was completely genuine - Mexican Jumping Beans. They were beans. They came from Mexico. And they actually jumped about inside their clear plastic box. At least...they jumped for the first few days until the worm inside them died. Seriously!
So tell me what you think of my list. What crazy toys can you remember?
