The 1960’s was a golden era for kids toys…before the Internet and the invention of video games, children used their imaginations to play games. Children of the 1950's played games like Tag, Hide and Seek, Leap Frog, Marbles and Hopscotch. Many of these games involved competition, and often kept children occupied for hours at a time.
