What’s your favorite toy of all time? According to a survey done by the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the winner is the military action figure G.I. Joe.

More than 24,000 votes were cast, and we think the results probably indicate that lots of adults were voting. G.I. Joe was first produced as a toy in 1964.

But even if you don’t have a G.I. Joe action figure in your room, we’re betting that some of the other toys on the list are much loved in your house.

Here’s the rest of the top 10 list:
