50 Great Toys

A 2005 list

Over the last few weeks in the run up to Christmas, every newspaper magazine I've read has featured a 'best 50 toys' list - presumably to entice the desperate last minute shopper.

As these lists seem to be fairly arbitrary - I spent a few hours over the last few days compiling my own list of 50 great toys. These toys are mostly ones I've either owned, childhood friends have owned, or I've seen in shops recently. They're probably a bit biased towards boy-toys, but there we go...

Phew! So there we go. Hope that's been of help. Or interest. What toys did you have? And love?
