The entertainment of the 1960s reflects change in the creation of some new children’s toys. For example, the first toy that children could play with was the Barbie doll in 1960. But since the teenage boys were asking, “How come they can have a toy and we can’t”, the Barbie led to the production of other action figures like GI Joe and the trolls. And because of the Barbie, the GI Joe, and the troll dolls, the ideas and possibilities for new toys were endless. Altogether; these toys had started a spark for an explosion of different and unique children’s toys. They have revolutionized what little kids play with today.
Ruth Handler, one of the founders of Mattel Toy Co., introduced the most popular fashion doll of all time in 1959. Handler got the idea for Barbie after noticing her daughter, Barbara, dressing adult paper dolls in cutout clothing. She based Barbie, an all-American blonde, pony-tailed beauty, on a redesign of a sultry German comic book character. Barbie debuted at the American International Toy Fair in New York City and originally cost $3. Barbie’s boyfriend, Ken, was introduced in 1961.
In the mid-1950s, French electrician André Cassagnes conceived the idea of a drawing toy with a joystick, glass screen and aluminum powder. Originally called the Magic Screen, Etch A Sketch became a commercial hit in 1960 when it was mass-produced and marketed by The Ohio Art Co. of Bryan, Ohio. With its twin dials and erasable screen, the toy allowed children—and adults—to sketch to their hearts’ content, obliterate their creations with a shake of the plastic console, and start a new drawing without ever putting pen to paper.
Salad Bars were popular back then
Subway was founded in 1965
Another element of change in the 1960s was in sports. For example, the 1960 Olympic Games brought lots of attention to American sports. The United States teams had brought back more than 10 gold medals. Also, many started observing Muhammad Ali because he was the world heavy weight boxing champion. His saying was, “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” But when he won his Olympic gold medal for boxing, he threw it into a river because he was so disgusted with racism in the US. And although it may not have seemed like it affected others, it gave anti-racial fighters an extra boost in their struggle to rid the United States of racism. There are also many other stories about sports athletes who helped fight the fight against racism, but Muhammad Ali was one of the more well-known ones. Sports have changed everything and made the world the way it is today.
