The #1 Toy of All Time
I used to watch those VH1 “Top 100” lists and other various shows like it. They were named different things but always on VH1. Always lists. And always the best — or worst — of something. Do you remember those? They consisted of things like the top 100 songs of the 80s. Or the best movies of all time. I don’t think I ever watched any of the shows the whole way through; I’d usually pick it up around numbers 30 or 40, do things around the house, then come back for the top 5 or 10.
But my personal favorite top 100-like show? The top 100 toys! And the #1, timeless best toy of all time?
Wait for it.
Wait for it.
Cue dramatic music.
Are you as disappointed as I was? Because I was. And yet, I watched that show about 12 or 13 years ago and I still remember it … mostly because the more I think about it, the more I’m convinced it’s true. (Yes … I do, in fact, spend time thinking about the top toy of all time. My mind likes to wander. Plus, I’m a giant nerd.) I mean, c’mon! A stick can be a sword, a paddle in a boat, a horse, a tent when put together with other sticks, a lightsaber, and anything else your imagination can think of.
Best of all? It’s a free toy for my dog, Murphy. As the weather gets warmer, he gets cuter and cuter when he plays with his stick. I had to snag a few pics and show them off … he’s just so goofy! May these photos inspire you and your family to find and stick or two, use your imagination, and play!
Isn’t he just such a handsome pup?!
