A few of my favorite things (aka, the best toys in the history of the world).

From GEEKDAD on Wired.com (via churchm.ag): The 5 Best Toys of All Time.

What do you think made the list?

A few of my favorites:

  • G.I. Joe?
  • Transformers?
  • Hot Wheels?
  • Train Set?
  • LEGOS?

Their list was far better…

The 5 Best Toys of All Time

1. Stick

Pro: Finally, something that does grow on trees.

Con: You could put someone’s eye out.

2. Box

Pro: Best celebrity endorsement: Calvin & Hobbes.

Con: Paradox: what do you put Box in when you’re done playing with it?

3. String

Pro: It really ties everything together.

Con: There’s a reason “no strings attached” is a benefit.

4. Cardboard Tube

Pro: Comes free with purchase of toilet paper, paper towels, and wrapping paper.

Con: Doesn’t hold up to enthusiastic play.

5. Dirt

Pro: Cheap as dirt.

Con: Dirty.
