The world of collectibles can serve to represent a chapter in history or a crazed madness that could surround a fad.

Sit back and remember collectibles that seemed to serve as the embodiment of wholesome American values (Barbie, the Teddy Bear and Raggedy Ann and Andy).

Walk through time and look at the staples of our culture, from the 1940's (the Slinky) and the 1950's (the Hula Hoop) to the 1960s (the Superball) and 1970's (the Rubik's Cube and the Pet Rock).

Look back and remember how the Lava Lamp made us feel cool and relaxed while the Cabbage Patch Doll craze had housewives engaged in fist fights at local toy stores.

Collectibles allow us to discover our commonality as some of us remember "yeah, I had one of those," while others admit "yeah, well I still do!"
