Action Man    Action Man won the honour of Toy Of The Decade in 1980. Developed from the G.I. Joe toy launched in the US in 1964, the manufacturers had no idea it would be so successful.    It was thought the name G.I. Joe was too American for the British market. The manufacturers decided to call him Action Man similar to the popular Danger Man TV series of the time.    He was launched in 1966 and won Toy Of The Year Award then too.

Comedian Bob Carolgees has a lot to answer for.    Not only did he make popular a particularly thick and bristly form of moustache, but he also gave the world Spit the punk dog.

Sylvanian Families    Tiny rabbits, bears, mice and frogs that were cute, cuddly and - best of all - tied into a TV series. A must have for every girly girl.    They sold by the barrel-load, became collectors items, and carried on the proud tradition of Care Bears, Pound Puppies and the like.    What exactly was Sylvanian about them is open to debate.

Kylie & Jason    They were a marketing dream. Two good-looking Aussies known by everyone under 25 from their roles in Neighbours.    With the help of British producers Stock, Aitken and Waterman they occupied the UK charts for practically the whole of 1989.    Then Jason went off to become Joseph in the West End and grow old.    Kylie remained 18 forever and continues to make hit records well into the 21st century.

The Wonder Years. This is my favorite show of all time. It captured all the things kids go through growing up in a funny and nostalgic way. The music is iconic and probably the reason this series isn't on DVD anywhere.
