"Twister" may join some of our other favorites in the Toy Hall of Fame, which sounds like a rockin' cool place to visit.
Nowadays it seems like the game is always mentioned in some weird sexual way, like "let's play naked Twister!" But we loved it in a very G-rated way as kids. Backbending yourself all up and landing smack on your butt on that weird plastic mat was pretty fun.
I once interviewed the inventor of Twister, Reyn Guyer. He also invented Nerf. Twister took off when it was featured on the Tonight Show and Johnny Carson played it with a scantily clad Eva Gabor. (Note: Wikipedia is now claiming that Guyer wasn't involved, which is weird to me. He isn't on the patent, supposedly.)
Was Twister a part of your childhood?
