Top 15 Trendy Toy Crazes
These fad toys have inspired store sell-outs, parent pandemonium and crazy resale values over the years. Is your kid's fave -- or your childhood obsession -- on the list?
The nation came down with Furby fever during the holiday season of 1998, when it became the toy on the top of every kid's wish list, according to Wikipedia. The part owl/part hamster/part Yoda robot critters spoke their own language -- Furbish, of course -- but gradually "learned" English the more you played with them. Although kids are no longer Furby-crazy, you can still find them for sale online.
