Best Selling Toys of All Time
If we’re going to talk about the best-selling toys of all time, we’re probably going to talk about Teddy Bears, Barbie Dolls, Lego’s and hula hoops. Those are three of the most loved toys enjoyed by different generations of kids. It’s comforting to know that if you check out the nearest Toys R Us, they are still available for kids to enjoy today.
What makes them one of the best toys? Those three toys share something in common. Their manufacturers were visionaries. Take the Barbie Doll for example. Dolls are not a new idea. During 1915, the Raggedy Ann Doll was introduced to the market and was an instant hit to the kids. What Mattel, Inc. did in 1959 was revolutionize the way dolls are portrayed so they introduced a fashion doll named Barbara “Barbie” Millicent Roberts.
Toys nowadays are usually an evolution of the best toys in the past. If you’re going to look at the neighborhood Toys R Us, you’ll probably see the Bratz Doll. It’s also a fashion doll, like Barbie, but it’s well-loved as well. Another great example is beanie babies. They are basically smaller “teddy bears” of different animals filled with plastic pellets. But due to the “collectible” factor, it became an instant hit to kids and adults alike.
It’s not hard to think of an idea for a toy. We’ve been kids once and we have to admit that there’s still a little kid inside of us. If you have a unique idea for a toy, why not explore it? It will probably take you a long time to reach the stature of the Barbie Doll, Lego and the hula hoop as the best-selling toys of all time. But what’s stopping you from making kids happy? Toys R Us still has a place for your idea.
If you have a unique idea, then you’re halfway there. Kids love new toys. A unique idea for a toy would spark the interest of kids. No one thought that the Lego bricks will be one of the best toys. But since it was a unique idea at that time to have toys that helps in the mental and motor development of kids, it was a hit. With the case of the Barbie Doll, who would have thought that a toy’s ability to be accessorized makes a big difference? In the case of Beanie Babies, we now know that a simple idea to change the stuffing to plastic pellets can make it one of the best-selling toys of all time.
It doesn’t matter if you have an entirely unique idea or an idea for the improvement of another toy. If you have an idea to give a toy variety in design, you can work on that as well. The good thing nowadays is you don’t have to have your own assembly line in order to turn your idea into the best toys in the land. If you have that light bulb moment, with the help of an experienced manufacturer, Toys R Us is waiting.
