On the VH1 channel there was a program about the best toys in the 80's and a hula hoop was voted number one. You gotta be joking. There were so many other toys a hell of alot better than a hula hoop don't you agree?

And then there's the fact that hula hoops were a fad of the 1950s, not the 1980s! Confused

I think that show was for all toys..ever. I remember seeing lincoln logs and legos on there and I think both of those were way before the 80's.

Oh yeah and twister! That was before my time for sure.

Transformers by far were the best toys of the 80's. Who else in here will agree with me?

Transformers and G.I. Joes were some of my favorite 80s toys! Very Happy Cool

And I remember playing with Lincoln Logs too- though I'm sure they were probably around before the 80s. Legos may have been around before the 1980s- but I think they're kinda associated a lot with the 80s in any case.

The 80's were also great for all the "sets" toys they had,
especially all the "mad scientist" type sets toys, or the
contrsuction-building tots.

My best friend had all of the star wars toys. She had an at-at the millienium falcon and a x-wing. It was the only thing that i've ever been envious of. lol Luckily she was a good friend and let me borrow them time to time. The Voltron lions were also cool and of course transformers. And i use to love my shrinky dinkys and colorforms. Smile

I didn't see the special, but a toy from the eighties I don't see brought up often that really deserves to be is the Ohio Arts' Zaks collection. I spent hours in front of the TV, watching my Sunbow and building every single thing they included in the directions, then trying to make up my own designs.
