Marbles, dinky toys, hula hoops, scoubidous, bang snaps, slime, spokey dokes and Tamagotchi… This Oxford Open Learning site looks back at over 50 years of toys that took classrooms and playgrounds by storm. The timeline runs up to the late 90s but students these days will no doubt find it fascinating to see not only what their parents were caught sneaking into school but also what toys have recently become popular once more.
