37 fads that swept the nation

Here’s an overview of fads that have overtaken the younger generation (and in some cases the older generation as well).

Some examples of fads (not necessarily on the list) that were popular when I was a kid in school: Ant farms, super ball collections, marbles, garbage pail kids, wacky wall walkers and chapstick containers converted into guns. It’s interesting how at one point having the largest collection of some of these items made you a star, but a mere week later, it was a useless pile of junk once the next fad hit. Kids are a fickle lot.
