House of Fraser released this Christmas a beautiful infographic showing how some of the most popular toys have evolved over the course of the past 50 years.
I have found the facts in it fascinating, from Barbie having had over 150 careers in her existence (and sadly, a body makeover that has distanced it from reality!) to the evolution of the Nerf guns style and size to a set of collectible Hot Wheels selling for over $6,000 on eBay!
The fact that so many toys have remained popular and evolved through the ages proves that once a good toy builds a reputation, its name alone has the potential to carry it through generations.
To me, this infographic also proved a love affair that continues through generations and the fact that most parents will continue to buy popular brands for the sake of fond childhood memories.
Do take a look yourself at the infographic and let me know what of the many facts included startled or impressed you, will you?
