Can you guess which decade these Christmas gifts were most popular in?

Make a list and check it twice, do you remember which decade these toys and gifts were most popular?


It's the time of the year when both children and adults have made their lists, checked them twice and now patiently wait for the holiday.

Today, we are focusing on four different decades and their top-selling gifts during the Christmas season. These are some of the most popular and longest-lasting gifts and toys of our time.

Try to match these toys to the decade in which they were one of the top-sellers. Some gifts will surprise you, while others are still living the legacy they left decades ago. Try not to get your decades mixed up!

  1. Let's start with an easy one. Which decade were Cabbage Patch Dolls on every kid's Christmas list?
  2. Which decade did Stretch Armstrong become one of the most highly-requested Christmas gifts?
  3. Which decade was the Game Boy a must-have holiday gift?
  4. Which decade did Star Wars toys and action figures become all the rage?
  5. Which decade was Barbie's First Dream House a highly popular present?
  6. Which decade was the first to have an Easy-Bake Oven under the tree?
  7. In which decade did kids beg their parents for My Little Pony toys?
  8. Which decade had a Beanie Babies boom?
  9. Which decade was LEGO one of the most requested Christmas present?
  10. Which decade did everyone want to play the Simon Memory Game?
  11. Which decade had the Etch A Sketch at the top of many kid's Christmas lists?
  12. In which decade was the Super Soaker most popular?

Can you guess which decade these Christmas gifts were most popular in?

Pffft! 7/12 ☹️

I just bought 2 grown up/adult coloring books a few days ago to use my colored pencils on ... very relaxing & got my mind off of things.

I had a Suzy Homemaker oven. If Olive Myrna were human, she'd be in her late 30s.
I still love Etch.

I was glad for the coal in my stockings it kept me warm.

Me, too...and I was purposely naughty this year just so Santa would leave coal in my stocking. With home fuel prices so much higher this year than previous years, that coal will come in handy to keep my family toasty warm this Christmas morning. Someone had to take one for the team, right?!!! Brrrrrrr! ;-) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Why did you have to use a new My Little Pony instead of the original My Little Pony? I'm sorry, but I don't like the new My Little Pony, and I feel I can't get away from it. I'm an 80's Pony Gal.

9 out of 12, not bad! My favorite was the Easy Bake Oven. My kids loved My Little Ponies.

8/12 ... I remember my nephew's Stretch Armstrong burst open from too much tugging and it was full of thick blue liquid.

10/12. Both of my daughters loved those My Little Pony items. I think there was a tv show too. My oldest son got himself in trouble with that Super Soaker more than once.
