About This Quiz

Kids are born for toys! 

After a day at school that feels like forever, nothing makes kids happier than getting home and running straight into the loving arms of their favorite toy. Parents can wait! And besides unparalleled economic and technological growth encompassing every level and class of society, the '70s, '80s, and '90s brought us something even more important: awesome toys. Those were the days when we'd take our pet rock out for a walk, set Transformers to battling over their precious Energon cubes, and perhaps wind down with an evening of Super Nintendo. From the perspective of the children, these were the greatest days in history- and they knew it! GI Joes made war against the malevolent forces of COBRA, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles brought their own unique brand of renaissance appreciation to the masses, and My Little Pony taught us all about friendship.

Even beyond how awesome these toys were to play with, for the first time ever, toys began to see a truly worldwide, global reach- meaning that kids from very different countries and backgrounds could reminisce together about how great they were. Toys helped bring the world together, one doll, monster, and game at a time! 

How much do YOU know about toys? We've gathered together a quiz chock full of some of the greatest toys and games of the '70s, '80s, and '90s to test your knowledge. 

Hit us with your best shot. YO, JOE!
