That list had some timeless enduring toys some of which will outlast civilization as we know(yes there will be yo-yos in the time of Jetson dress rings), AND WE WHOOPED THEM ALL!

The BMX, is a standard and should have a place, but first :???:

BMX as a toy? hm.... doesn't sound right to me; I don't think of bikes as toys, personally.


Anyway, that's great! I love to see that TFs are in people's minds like that!

The BMX was first? I never considered my bikes as toys, they were transportation and a means of doing business (paper route).

Bigger suprise that Star Wars didn't make the list at all.

Yay for #2 though

No offense but this list is garbage, rubiks cube? Those things are so lame! And lego at #4? I love transformers, and have a ton more tfs than legos, but if there was one toyline to be at the very top I'd think it'd be lego. I'm glad it's Tfs that are on there and not something like the hoola hoop (remember vh1's #1 toy of all time, what crap, someone try and find a kid playing with a hoola hoop these days. If you give a kid one they'll laugh at you and kick you in the nuts.)

What in the world is an action man? Rubiks cube I can understand. But Action man? It looks like an ancient G.I.Joe but it's not...

Action Man is a POS that they've been peddling to the Uk for years. Even when kids wanted to kill off the bad guy and get rid of the thing, they started making it again.

I don't consider bikes toys either, but hey, tfs made #2!

How is the BMX the coolest toy ever? I dont think I ever had a mate who evan had/wanted a BMX, and Rubric's cube cooler than lego? I think not. There are some really lame toys in that list of coolest toys.

AH user survey. that explains everything. It means nothing then.

A survey of what the toy-buying public thinks is cool means nothing? I don't know about that. It may not be representative of the population as a whole, but at least it's a good sign for Hasbro when their media blitz takes off... well, round about now, I suppose.

Star Wars toys were always more of a collector's thing. They never "did" much until recently. Plus Star Wars toys are largely regarded as a "geek" thing by most folks so I'm not really surprised they didn't make the list.

BMX was number 1? WTF? How is that a toy?

the list sucks!

I would not classify a BMX bike as the Number 1 cool toy. Someone stuffed the ballot box :-x

I guess we cant argue with coming in second to BMX... #2 is pretty damn good

BMX bikes are sports gear, not toys. TRU sells them, sothey're on the list...but if we don't count the bikes, then we're number 1!

^I concur, I was thinking the same thing. The list is flawed.

I also agree that BMX bikes are not toys...I also have a beef with the Rubix Cube being included.

Is a BMX a toy, as much as it is a mode of Transportation/a leisure object/ a piece of Sporting equipment.

The results dont surprise me at all, considering the movie came out less than a month ago, reminding people all about their Transformers.

Good to beat Play-doh, Cabbage Patch Kids, Gameboy, Scalextrics, Barbie and Lego.
