After the frenzy of the Christmas period, where parents around all the world swarm like crazy bees looking for the year's "must-have" toy, it's time to do some considerations.To do this we will start from the 100 Greatest Toys presented by Jonathan Ross on Channel 4
In a world frenetically looking for the latest technological news in every sector (and toys do not escape to this law), what at first sight striked me was the longevity of many of them.With thousand of new toys and games hitting store shelves every year, it can be surprising that many of the most popular amongst them are actually quite old... or not ?
People have been playing for the very beginning of the history, being toys a very important element in child formation.So, ancient Chinese kites are dating back more than 2300 years,  while objects human and animal shaped that may have been toys have been found in deposits from  ancient Sumer dating to 2600 BC..  Animals and other clay toys where found in India date to about 2500 BC.One of the most ancient toys for adults and children is the ball, used in secular but even in sacred games. Sometimes, the popularity of some toys shows some cyclicity, but toys based on great ideas are still on the top of the list and are used even nowadays, depite the fact that their creation dates back of several years of even decades.

Lego is a clear sample of this: Lego (an abbreviation for "leg" and "godt" meaning "play well" inDanish language) was created by Ole Kirk Christiansen. After his activity of houses and furniture construction burned down in 1924, to restart his business  and survive to the Great Depression, he started to produce miniature versions of his products as  design aids.This was the inspiring idea behind the beginning of the toys production business.See more details on Wikipedia:
Today, 80 year after, Lego offers a wide range of Toys of different categories and for all ages.
