Often called the king of consoles, the Nintendo 64 was a landmark in consumer consoles. It was the first console to harness a 64-bit processor and could run 3D games such as Mario Kart, Banjo-Kazooie, and what will go down in history as the greatest game ever... GOLDENEYE.

2009 - Nintendo Wii

The Nintendo Wii was the first introduction to motion controlled gaming for most (sorry, Powerglove). It was fun for the whole family, designing weird little avatars and competing in sports like bowling, golf, and tennis from the comfort of your couch.

Combining the physics of surfing and snowboarding, RipStiks were the most popular mode of transport for kids in 2008. You could take them anywhere and they were self-propelling, meaning you didn't have to constantly drag your feet like with a scooter!

1999 - Flight Control Buzz Lightyear

Let's be honest, the Toy Story films were pretty much glorified ads. BUT oh boy did they do their job! Everyone wanted a Buzz Lightyear doll with functional buttons and lasers. They even had the nice little touch of Andy's signature on the bottom of his foot

2003 - Robosapien

Robosapien was on everyone's wish list in 2003. He could throw and catch a ball, speak to you, and do your bidding at the push of a button. You knew your parents loved you if you found one of these under the Christmas tree.
