The History Channel has created a list of the
101 Objects That Changed the World.”  I
was pleased to see that the list included 10 toys, or roughly 10% of the
objects cited.  Here is a list of the
toys ranked in reverse order with their ranking:

99         Frisbee

93         Slinky

92         GI
Joe

89         Hula
Hoop

87         Teddy
Bear

82         Rubik’s
Cube
Unique-Wedding-Ring-4

Wedding Ring #74

54         Barbie

51         Rubber
Ball

48         Dice

41         Chess
Set

Chopsticks #42

To provide some perspective, The Mask of Kings Tut was number 81,
the Wedding Ring number 74, the Guitar number 63 and Chopsticks number 42.  What was number 1; the Bible?  The Route 66 sign was number 101.
