yes, this is the most influential people use every time they take the time we have in childhood, I think, the best game is the work of Star Wars figures because the figures are often similar to what we see making play them easy and not like capacity owners there can make doll fly or similar

Come on every child has a LEGO in his childhood even the baby girls with their pink LEGO. It was interesting toy and you can build almost everything from it. The most built thing is for sure a house or a tower.

For older kids and even adults in the Czech Republic, we have a great alternative to Lego System. The building kit is called "Merkur" and it's been on sale for almost a hundred of years. In terms of possibilities, it's much more advanced than Lego will ever be.

You can actually build a functioning 3D printer with it.

I do not think I have a favorite toy. Everyone enjoyed. Anyway, as I was young in Poland basically toys were not, and those that were were only for the richest. I loved G.I. Joe action figures and much regret that I can not have.

l have a childhood memory of this very one, due to the reason that l had one then and that was the one l saw most children go along with during those days. As a child anyone that doesn't have it will sometimes and share with a neighbor or someone close-by that has one or some.

Well, I am fairly familiar with most of those action figures listed above but not with all of them. And amongst them all, I think Star Wars action figures are definitely the most influential children toys of all time, closely followed by LEGO toys.

It has to be barbie undoubtedly. Every girl wanted this toy. There was no competition. She was a tall and blond haired doll with blue eyes and the perfect closet. She could come in different sizes and in the end, they made a movie of her which boosted sales.

I'm a barbie girl, in a Barbie world. Life in plastic is fantastic. You can brush my hair, undress me everywhere. Imagination. Life is your creation.

My favorite toy when I was a kid. It has been influential too because, aside from being that so famous to kids, Barbie has been part of the feminist issues. If given the scale of a real person, she's supposed to be 5'9"', with 36-18-33 vital stats. Who would not drool over when they see a real life Barbie in person right ?Sad to say, "anti-Barbies" said her body type is something really hard to achieve. If she were real, they said she's gonna be underweight and it's a bad influence to the body images of the girls. But for me, it's not really a big deal. Dolls are dolls.

From the time she was released in 1959, she had a lot of careers. From doctors, astronauts, NASCAR driver and even a president of the US. She's usually representing women doing jobs dominated by males. She got a lot of talents. She helps people. She possesses a good character. That's proofs that she's an all around good model for girls, especially the young. You can see that in all of her movies. So why just focus on her body. Take a look through how she is as a woman. The character.

Certainly the Rubik's Cube! It's my favorite toy from childhood! Today, when in addition to this site in the real job I work a lot with children, I can only confirm the conclusion that the Rubik's Cube is very important for the development of memory in a child and to promote! The brain is both exercise and improves memory!

Th most influencing toys are the toys that we see today and it keeps evolving. Lego may look like a simple plaything for kids in the first place however if you search the web and listen to news, Lego is applied to robotics as well. From a simple toy to something more productive. That is Lego.

Lego has been the best I've known. I liked using the brighter colours when playing back then. I'd like to give credits to the manufacturers of Lego game. It is such a useful and educative piece. Another toy I'd like to list is car toy.

Lego my best for children's play. Develop children's creativity and imagination. With them, the child can and establishes only a can and the larger society. From Lego blocks can make a varied figures. My recommendation to young mothers are building blocks.
