Children's toy types change at any time

Sep 07, 2018

The types of children's toys are constantly changing and changing from time to time. People of different ages have childhood memories accompanied by different toys.


In the childhood memories of today's Chinese, in the 1950s and 1960s, there was a lack of material, and it was in the stage of solving the problem of food and clothing. There were also few toys sold in the market. Children's toys were mostly based on local materials and artificially made. Among them, wooden toys are the most common, such as wooden pistols, gyros, small tricycles and slingshots, as well as common mud toys, sound toys, paper airplanes, boats, darts, kites, etc. In addition, the shuttlecock and the marbles were also popular among the children at that time.


In the 1970s, tin toys began to flourish and wooden toys slowly became less. Iron frogs, metal trains, metal pistols and metal robots were the most representative toys at the time.

In the 1980s, it was the most popular era of Transformers, and consoles began to appear. At that time, there were no mobile phones and computers, and some were transformers, Rubik's cubes, building blocks, Barbie dolls, and electronic pets that gradually replaced tin toys. The all-time bully game console has also begun to enter the lives of children.


In the 1990s, it was the era of being occupied by cartoon characters. A large number of foreign animations have entered the eyes of Chinese people, and the children's toy market has been rapidly occupied by cartoon characters. Special forces, Toy Story, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pokémon, Doraemon, etc. became mainstream toys for children of that era.

In the past ten years since the 21st century, along with the development of society, the rapid spread of electronic technology, iPad, 3DS, PSP game consoles, remote control toys, intelligent toys, etc. have become children's favorite. At the same time, foreign animation related peripheral toys products also ushered in a heyday.


Since the second half of the last century, the historical changes of childhood toys in different generations in China have truly evolved the transformation of childhood culture for more than half a century. I believe that with the development of society, toys will become more and more valuable, more diverse and more popular, rather than just suitable for children.

DIY creative toys, puzzles toys and collectible toys will be a good trend
