Most Popular Christmas Toys by Year

These Are the Hot Toys That Sold Out at Every Christmas From 1983 to 2017

Remember back in the '80s when all you wanted for Christmas was a Cabbage Patch Kid or a talking Teddy Ruxpin, but stinkin' Santa didn't come through for you? Consider it one of the timeless traditions of the holiday season. Every year, there's a toy so popular that Christmas supply and demand renders it impossible for most kids to actually get it under the tree. From Tickle Me Elmo to Tamagotchis, Xbox 360s to the Pokémon craze, there will always be the one that got away.

Check out the most popular toys by year from the early 1980s until 2017, and before you get too nostalgic, remember that you probably had a kid begging for the two items (one of which was going for triple the price on eBay) on the 2016 list, plus whatever they're pining for this year. Our hearts go out to you.
