You can learn a lot about what the world was like when you were born by examining your birth year's pop culture. The year's most popular movie, highest-rated TV show, and most famous actor or actress offer a window into the era. But do you remember the biggest toy from your birth year? The answer is most likely "no," because you probably don't remember much of anything from that year. If you did have a top toy, it was likely your blankie.
But kids older than you were going nuts for something else. Must-have toys over the years have included Cabbage Patch dolls, action figures, and even a toy invented as a fake prop for a film.
The most popular toys vary from the technologically advanced, such as the Game Boy, to the incredibly simple, such as the building-block game Jenga. If you have a birthday between 1975 and 2000, take a trip down memory lane to find the biggest toy the year you were born.
