For the past year, Santa’s elves have been busy working away making toys for kids — but even though it’s 2013, some of these classic toys are still as popular as ever.
The ’50 Years, 50 Toys’ infographic goes back half a century to look at some of the most requested Christmas toys. This includes absolute classics like Mr. Potato Head, Battleship and Hot Wheels, as well some newer toys like GameBoys and Tickle Me Elmos that were hugely sought-after.
As the graphic comes to the last few decades, the toys become more and more electronic. But as much as you might think kids of today would not be interested in seeing some of these tech-less toys revived, 2013 has revived classic toys like Furby and Tamagotchis for yet another Christmas.
