Not very many children had toys before the twentieth century. Early toys in the Roman times were made of wood or clay. Modern toys are like the Kaleidoscope, and jigsaw puzzles. In the 1920’s toy trains became popular. They were made of wood. Toy trains are still popular today, such as Thomas the train.                                                                                                                                        In the 1950’s legos became popular. Kids could build, and play with a amazing brick system. Ole Kirk Christiansen founded lego. It started out as wooden toys. But he thought of a brick system. Now legos are sold all over the world.                                                                                                In 1959 the barbie was created. Action toys were created such as G.I. Joe. There were a lot of toys being made at this time. When the “Star Wars” Movie was made in 1977, Star Wars Figures became popular.                                                                                                                                         In 1996 Tickle Me Elmo was made. It was from the popular kids show “Sesame Street”. Later Elmo would branch into a show called “Elmo’s World”. In 1998 the Furby went on sale. And finally in 2000 the Bey-blade spinning top toys were made.
