The 5 Best Toys of All Time

Jonathan Liu, writing for Wired.com:

“I’ve worked really hard to narrow down this list to five items that no kid should be without. All five should fit easily within any budget, and are appropriate for a wide age range so you get the most play out of each one. These are time-tested and kid-approved! And as a bonus, these five can be combined for extra-super-happy-fun-time.”

(Via The Loop.)

This is good for a chuckle. I got a lot of mileage out of all of these, especially number five.

My parents had an above-ground swimming pool installed when I was about 9. Our back yard was fairly level, but not completely flat, so they had someone create a foundation for the pool with a payloader. The resulting dirt pile in the corner of the yard provided hundreds of hours of enjoyable, daydreaming play.
