The 5 Best Toys of All Time


  1. Stick
  2. Box

  5. Dirt
Comment: I'll add to the list:
  1. Snow - especially with a sled
  2. Ice - think ice skating
  3. Pond / Lake
  4. Swinging / climbing rope
  5. Tree (climbing)
  6. Old tire (tire swing / or get inside and be rolled)
  7. BB gun


  1. Two more:

    Ball (base ball, rubber ball, basketball, football, etc). A young boy can have hours of fun with a ball.

    A tent: What fun we had with an old WWII army pup-tent. Camping out in the old back yard!

  2. Bicycle. Dad's tools. Pocketknife. (oops, time to get to the emergency room!) :^)

  3. My Dad had all this electical, radio and TV equipment (vacuum tubes, etc). We loved playing (experimenting) with his stuff.

    Fun stuff we did: building an electic motor, crystal radio, wired phones, electric magnet, etc.

  4. Whittling with a pocket knife. All I every really "made" was a pile of shavings but it was fun!

  5. Before my time (my childhood) but Legos is a great "toy". I loved watching my boys build with Legos.

  6. My brother and I spent hours upon hours with Legos. The most fun we had was creating our own things, not following the directions to make pre-designed toys.
