The 90’s was one of the most amazing decades when the iconic kids’ toys came into the picture. Popular options like the RUBIK’S cube, silly putty, and some of the most advanced tech including the Tamagotchi surely managed to capture both the parents and their kids’ attention.
Here is a list of popular kids toys that were a huge success towards the end of the millennium.
Easy bake oven
Probably one of the best selling kids toys for little girls. The easy bake oven allowed kids to bake their own cupcakes and it was a perfectly safe toy to gift. Little girls loved to open up their make-believe bakery shop and play for hours pretending to be a pastry chef.
Many of us have the fondest memories with a slinky, one of the simplest and yet most sought-after toys in the market. At the end of the day, all of us were just playing with a giant compressed string that would roll over down the stairs in a slow irregular motion providing hours of entertainment.
The Tamagotchi might be one of the most technologically advanced kid’s toys back in the nineties. You could have your very own keychain-sized virtual pet right in your pocket. The Tamagotchi was also very popular among adults back in the day as there was virtually no age limit to have one.
One of the messiest and undoubtedly also among the most fun kids toys to have back in the day. The silly putty was nothing more than a pink, stretchy, and malleable clay with a lot of adhesive strength. Named aptly after the concept that influenced the development of this toy, the silly putty was a definite crowd favorite.
American Girl dolls
Although Barbie Dolls pretty much managed to capture little girls attention and potentially a large chunk of the market share in the toy manufacturing industry, American Dolls still remain a classic and are better in many ways than Barbie. The franchise has expanded over the years with smartphone apps and games featuring its products. Perhaps one of the most important features making these dolls a crowd favorite is the customization option that allows you to make your very own doll.
