One of my colleagues sent me this link. If you like toys, trivia or Jeopardy, then check it out! It is the back story of how some of our favorite toys were invented. Just like so many inventions, these toys were accidental and hit it big. Lincoln logs, hula-hoop, sea-monkeys, troll dolls and many more to bring you back to your childhood. That is, if you were born in the 50's or 60's. I am sure the X-gen will have no idea what most of these toys are or how to play with them!

Exploring this site a bit more will reveal more useless information such as 10 famous people who were homeschooled, stories behind the Dr. Seuss books, and much much more trivia you never knew that you never knew!
