The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, Indiana recently held an online pole taking votes on the top 100 toys that define our childhoods. In a list that included everything from Silly Putty to the Jack-in-the-Box and gathering a total of over 24,000 votes, some of Tomopop's favorites managed to top the list.
In what might be considered a landslide victory the top spot went to G.I.Joe with 1,826 votes. That's no small victory considering the number two spot went to Transformers with 1,086 votes. Lego secured the number 3 spot with 836 votes, only edging out Barbie with 831 fan votes. The final spot in the top five went to View-Master with 692 votes.
Some other notable names on the list include Cabbage Patch Kids at 11, Hot Wheels at number 15, Mr. Potato Head at 20, My Little Pony at number 26, and Care Bears at 29. The entire top 100 can be viewed here along with personal stories from individuals for each entry. Visitors are still encouraged to submit their own stories.
