Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. My siblings and I grew up in the noughties. My sister was a huge fan of a brand of fashion dolls (huge rivals of Barbie) that were first released in 2001. What was the brand?

Answer: Bratz

Bratz were "the girls with a passion for fashion". They were Barbie's cutting edge rivals that began to eat into Mattel's sales so much that Mattel filed a lawsuit against Bratz's producers MGA Entertainment. The range of dolls were ethnically diverse and on the forefront of fashion.

Their design sparked controversy, however, over their stylised (and some argued sexualised) bodies and full face of make up.
2. Beyblades were a popular toy that allowed you to battle your friends. What did a Beyblade do?

Answer: Spun around

Beyblades were released in Japan in 1999 and hit international toy shops in 2002. An anime TV series was released simultaneously to promote sales of the toy. A Beyblade was a spinning top that was customisable. In a Beyblade duel, players released their spinning tops and would try to make sure their own Beyblade was the last to remain spinning on the stadium. Extra points could be scored for knocking an opponent's Beyblade right out of the ring!
3. Which toy could be used to make ice treats?

Answer: Mr Frosty

There have been many versions of Mr Frosty over the years, each with slightly different accessories. All of them could be used to create crushed ice drinks using the snowman-shaped ice crusher. Mr Frosty also came with moulds to make ice lollies and shaped ice cubes. A perfect toy for a hot summer day.
4. What did Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! have in common?

Answer: They were trading card games.

Pokemon began as a video game for Nintendo's Game Boy. Yu-Gi-Oh! started as an anime TV series. Both Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! soon developed into trading card games. Although both games were released in the 1990s, they continued to be popular into the next decade.

In trading card games, players collect a range of cards. Once a player has enough, they can play against someone else in an attempt to win cards off them.
5. In 2003, a small digital camera was released for a popular video game console. Which console was the EyeToy made for?

Answer: PlayStation 2

A huge range of games were released for the PlayStation 2, but the ones I enjoyed the most were the ones that needed an EyeToy. The camera would capture your movements, allowing for very active games. The first game to be released for the EyeToy was "EyeToy: Play", which involved mini-games like "Kung Foo" and "Ghost Catcher".
6. Which doll had brightly-coloured rubbery hair and flexible arms and legs?

Answer: Betty Spaghetty

Betty Spaghetty was popular between 1998-2004. The thing that made her appealing was her long, rubbery hair that could be styled in lots of ways. The dolls had changeable hands, clothes and shoes. Within the series, Betty had a younger sister and two best friends.
7. Furbies were popular throughout the the noughties. Children were convinced that they could be taught to speak English if they were played with enough. How did Furbies actually work?

Answer: They said more English phrases over time.

Furbies looked like a cross between an owl and a hamster and came in a range of colours. All Furbies spoke in Furbish - a made-up language - originally. They were programmed to slowly speak more and more set phrases over time. The advertising, however, suggested that the more a Furby was played with, the more English it would speak.

Many children believed that their toy was actually learning a new language. Furbies were on sale across the world and were programmed to speak in languages other than English, too.
8. What was the name of the pocket-sized digital pet that was popular in the early 2000s?

Answer: Tamogotchi

If your parents wouldn't let you have a pet, a Tamogotchi was the next best thing. Once the toy was activated, a small pet would hatch out of an egg and it was the player's job to keep it happy, clean, and well-fed. Tamogotchis worked in real-time - though some had a pause button - so they would become bored or hungry if not cared for regularly. (I used to take mine to school and feed it at lunch time.) By 2010, over 76 million Tamogotchis had been sold.
9. I loved teddy bears as a child. Owners of a Doodle Bear could do something to their teddy that other bear-owners couldn't do (at least not without punishment!). What could you do to a Doodle Bear?

Answer: Draw on it

Doodle Bears had all the cuddliness of a normal soft toy, but had one extra feature. You could draw on it to your heart's content with the washable markers provided. When you had finished doodling on your Doodle Bear, you could put it in the washing machine and start all over again.
10. One of the most popular computer games of the decade was first released in 2000. Players could create characters, build them a home and set them on a career path. What was the game?

Answer: The Sims

"The Sims" was a life simulation game that was developed by Maxis. Once a Sim had been created, it was the player's job to provide a home and keep them happy... if that's what the player wanted. There was always the option to ensure the Grim Reaper visited the household.

It proved to be an incredibly popular game and newer versions have been released for more modern computers, and with even more features.
