Toy Reboots of 2012

Back when Lenny Kravitz released the video for "Are You Gonna Go My Way" in 1993, he single- handedly brought bell-bottom pants back into style. Adults at the time looked on in horror and amusement as their kids rushed them out to buy something they thought had long been dead.

Product revival isn't exclusive to fashion – the same has happened with movies, TV shows and music. There is even a USB Pet Rock that is even more useless than it was before, since it now takes up desk space and one of your USB ports.

Everything these days seems to be remade, and toys are no exception. Like anything else, some are reboots that bring something new to the table, while some just rehash old ideas to sell to a new generation of kids.
