Infographic - Enjoy a new and informative infographic each SaturdayMost of us are starting our holiday shopping and so for this week’s infographic I found a fun one about toys through time. It starts in the 60’s, I wish I could have found one that went back even further.

Do you remember asking Santa for any of these toys? What kinds of toys are your kids asking for this year?

ha what a cute infographic! I like how the written letters go to an email then to a phone message. I loved the Etch a Sketch when I was younger, now days is mostly electronics being wanted.

I thought the change in method of santa letters was cute too! I know my son thought I had Santa’s private email address when he was younger.

I remember getting a Rubik’s Cube one year, and I definitely asked for My Little Pony dolls several times. We still love Playmobil toys; I didn’t realize those were popular in the 1960s!

Yes, Playmobil has been around for a very long time.

I could never get the hand of the Etch a Sketch, just could not do it.

I never could do really intricate things, but I still loved it!
