Just in time for your holiday shopping, here's Wired magazines take on 

The 5 Best Toys of All Time

(Hint: Nothing on the list makes beeping sounds, flashes lights, plays songs, requires batteries, costs money to procure or claims to be educational, improve hand-eye coordination or otherwise "produce results". And nothing's made of plastic!)                                                                


  1. LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have the best memories as a kid sticking the cardboard tubes on my arms and making homes for my cats out of boxes. They should have put bubble wrap on there as well. Another thrilling toy.

  2. Yes! I love it too. You're absolutely right - bubble wrap. Hours and hours of fun. I'd love to collect specific memories people have of what they did with these items - starting with your cat houses and cardboard tube-arms.
