When you think of classic toys, two things probably come to mind: Barbie and Hot Wheels. It’s amazing how the same toys that we played with as children as still just as popular with children today! So many things have changed throughout the years, but these time-honored toys have remained constant. There’s just something pleasantly nostalgic about seeing your child play with the same toys that you used to play with when you were their age.
Barbie Dolls were first introduced in 1959 by Mattel co-founder Ruth Handler. After watching her daughter spend hours playing with paper dolls, an idea began forming in her head. She envisioned a 3D doll that would allow children everywhere to play out their dreams. At the 1959 New York Toy Fair, the first Barbie Doll made its big debut! Ruth was proud that “Barbie always represented the fact that a woman has choices.” Barbie inspires children to pursue their dreams and teaches them that they can be anything they want to be. You can find Barbie at any of our four stores and online!
Hot Wheels cars came to be in 1968 when Mattel co-founder Elliot Handler got the idea to create a line of die-cast model cars. Elliot wanted to ensure that these cars looked realistic, so he recruited car designer Harry Bentley Bradley. Together they created the very first line of Hot Wheels model cars! They were a huge success and are still just as popular today! Hot Wheels cars encourage imaginative and hands-on play. Available at any of our four stores and online!
