From the hula hoop to in Canada

The Joy of Toys and Games (CBC archives - Topic spans: 1958 - 2004)
(16 television clips  -  4 radio clips)

"From the hula hoop, tabletop hockey, Spirograph and toy guns to Cabbage Patch Kids, Elmo, GI Joe and Transformers, kids in Canada have had no shortage of toys and games to choose from since the 1950s.  Mega-seller Barbie came in various incarnations and the trivial pursuit of digital equipment made popular games seem invisible in the new millenium.  CBC Digital Archives takes a look back at what's been cool and unique in playland throughout the years."
