Who remembers those fun fads of bygone years such as marbles, hula hoops and yo-yos? Well, you might be surprised to learn that some of these games have been around for eons. Marbles were mentioned in Roman literature. Thousands of years before the modern hula hoop was marketed in the 1950’s, the traditional "hula hoop" was made of dried up willow, rattan, grapevines, or stiff grasses. A museum in Germany has a Greek vase painting from 500 BC that shows a boy playing with a yo-yo!
