I Just Swallowed The Toy Of The Century
Thursday's One Cup of Java Challenge: With the holiday season in full swing, there’s been lots of reports about this toy or that toy being the “toy of the year.” Toy of the year is fine if that’s all you’re shooting for. Our question this morning is about the toy that was named Toy of the 20th Century by the British Toy Retailers Association. Your One Cup of Java Challenge this morning: what 1932-invented toy did they name toy of the century? One clue: when you Google the name of the toy and the word “swallowed” you get more than 74,000 hits.
Answer: Lego (it beat Barbie and the teddy bear). Game of the century was Monopoly, “craze” of the century was the yo-yo.
