5. 90s: Beanie Baby
Taking things back to basics are these cuddly toys which achieved massive popularity in the 90s. Taking their name from their interior which was stuffed full of plastic pellets: "the whole idea was it looked real because it moved" says a spokesperson for Ty Warner Inc., the company behind the cute little toys. Beanie babies came in lots of different shapes and sizes with production strictly limited on certain designs so that they became much sought after collectibles.
