Wyoming’s Favorite 90’s Toy Will Hit You With a Wave of Nostalgia
The 90's were a great time to be a kid. But then, as someone born in the early 90s, I might be a bit biased. But I'll admit, we had some pretty great toys, like the original Polly Pocket (that could actually fit in your pocket). I also remember Sky Dancers and Tamagotchis, and Pokemon cards getting banned from my elementary school. But the 90s toy I remember most clearly? That's probably the Furby I was worried would self-destruct in my closet, but I digress.
Back in November 2018, the folks at All Home Connections used Google Analytics to figure out each state's favorite 90's toy, and I have to admit, I love Wyoming's choice. Not only was it fun to play with, it was practical! So what did Wyomingites love?
Apparently, Wyomingites were very particular to Easy Bake Ovens. I loved mine growing up, and probably remember the baked goods that I made in it tasting a lot better than they actually did. Coincidentally, the Easy Bake Oven was also the nickname I gave to the purple Isuzu Trooper I used to drive.
Our neighbors to the south on the other hand, preferred to play with Mr. Sketch, while Utah residents showed an affinity for American Dolls. Here is the link to the original study.
