There are 16 comments on the www.ranker.com story from Mar 28, 2012, titled The Most Nostalgia-Inducing '80s Toys. In it, www.ranker.com reports that:

Everything started in the 1980s. As you know, most toys, movies and TV you see being rebooted in pop culture today originally came from the '80s. Toys were what captured the imaginations of kids in that time before home video game systems were ubiquitous, before the internet and back when people still had to "tune in" to be able to see the TV shows they loved. Saturday morning cartoons dictated what people played with. The 1980s were the golden age of toys.

Most people did not tune in in the 80's, this guy must be in his twenties, and from the 80's.

My favorite toys hands-down in the 80s, were anything that had to deal with the Care Bears. When I was three years old, in 1983, I got my first Carebear, which was Love a Lot Bear. I take her everywhere I went. Whether I went to the grocery store, church, or to the day care, that's where she'd be, right by my side.
