What's the toy you miss the most from your childhood? And how many of these do you remember? We're going back through 50 years of America's buzziest, most talked-about toys, with the help of the Strong National Museum of Play, which provided this list.
We'll start with 1969, the year of the Snoopy Astronaut.
With his jaunty bubble helmet and air pack, Astronaut Snoopy is ready to play his part in moon-landing fever! Not sure the scarf will help much in the cold vacuum of space, though.
Ruxpin was a teddy bear that could read kids a bedtime story using interchangeable tapes. Though it was America's most popular toy for two years, its maker went bankrupt thanks to the 1987 stock market crash, but the recent reboot adds some updated electronics to the old favorite.
The spinning battle top game Beyblade features hundreds of tops, guns to shoot the tops, and stadiums for them to battle in.
The Robosapien is an interactive robot that can be programmed to do simple tasks, such as giving high fives, picking up socks, and fighting a global machine war for SkyNet.
The dancing Dora gyrates in a circle while singing the song We Did It from the Dora the Explorer TV series. Being a peaceful explorer, she does not fight Robosapien.
Nearly three decades after its birth, Rubik's Cube was back in an electronic form that used LED lights instead of movable pieces to play a variety of different games. It was a hit, though not quite the fad of the original cube.
Skylanders are action figures with chips inside that are read by a device that pits the characters against each other in combat. They aren't to be confused with Highlanders, the immortal warriors who can only be killed by removing their heads.
Looking for a pet for your Robo-Sapien? Tekno featured more than 160 different functions and emotional reactions, and allowed little kids to enjoy having a pet without their parents cleaning up afterward.
Everyone's favorite orange ball was the breakout star of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The most popular piece of BB-8 merch was the remote-controlled droid that could do almost everything the movie's droid could. Except repair X-Wing fighters. Because those aren't real.
