most used toys by readers’ kids

rodysWe asked, you answered! Here’s what our readers’ kids have been playing with this year. We’ve organized this “most played with” list by age, and where it made sense, by gender.

We’ll let the data speak for itself, but true to our list-y origins, here are three things we noticed as we compiled the results:

1. Rainbow Loom appeared across many age groups.

2. Lego continues to be a time tested “most played with” toy.

3. Not surprising, technology in many forms (devices, gaming consoles and apps) made the list in quite a few spots.
