Welcome to the BadFads Museum
The Fads You Wish Would Stay Forever... or Never Come Back

Fads have come to typify periods of time in popular culture over the 20th century. From Flagpole Sitting in the 1920's, Dance Marathons and the Zoot Suits of the 1930's and Goldfish Swallowing of the 1940's, fads really emerged in the 1950's, 1960's and 1970's with the coming of the Hula Hoop, Telephone Booth Stuffing, Bellbottoms, Platforms Shoes, Mood Rings and the Pet Rock. The 1980's and 1990's are represented as well with the Rubik's Cube, Beanie Babies and the Hacky Sack.
