Also, more than a quarter of the respondents (29%) noted that a doll or stuffed animal was their favorite childhood toy.‘In the current era of electronics and always wanting ‘the next best thing,’ it’s nice to travel back in time and remember when life was simpler and products were more memorable,’ said Cabot Orton, proprietor of The Vermont Country Store. ‘Toys and candy especially are the iconic childhood products that many people recall easily as adults. This survey gives us great insight into those products that make people feel nostalgic and reminiscent of their youth.’Some of the other favorite candies noted in The Vermont Country Store survey were lollipops or hard candy (10%), licorice (8%), and jelly beans (8%). Other top choices for toys were trains (9%) and building blocks (8%).The Vermont Country Store’s catalogue, website (www.vermontcountrystore.com(link is external)) and retail locations (Weston and Rockingham, VT) are home to thousands of classic toys, candy and other products that transport customers back in time.About The Vermont Country StoreIn 1946, Vrest and Ellen Orton printed their first catalog’just 12 pages and 36 products’and mailed it to the folks on their Christmas card list.
