Toy Trivia Contest!

Will, Mangesh, Toby and I will be spending the next few days at the big Toy Fair at the Javits Center in New York trying to convince the game-buying elite to stock Split Decision. If you’re attending the Toy Fair, head on over to Booth 6177 and say hello!*

To celebrate (and give us something to talk about), let’s hold an impromptu toy trivia contest. Leave us a comment with your favorite toy story—origins, controversies, sales records, what toys used to be called, puzzling extensions, world records, the previous jobs of toy inventors, etc.

We’ll award mental_floss t-shirts to the two people who submit our favorite facts. And if I end up using your fact on Twitter, we’ll send you a free back issue of mental_floss magazine.

* But don’t bring your kids. From the show’s official website: “Absolutely no one under the age of 18 (including infants and toddlers) is permitted to attend Toy Fair. Please save yourself and your child the stress and embarrassment of being turned away.”
