In the 1920's several fads and
crazes came to being. For instance, dancing marathons and dances
like the Charleston became immensely popular. Mah-jongg, flagpole
sitting, yo-yo's, goldfish eating, pogo sticks, and roller-skating
became a few of the many fads.
In this section of "The Roaring
Twenties," we have provided users with two different games.
Both the crossword puzzle and the card game center around the
theme of crazes and fads. Crossword puzzles, which were introduced
in 1923, quickly became a hot item. Collecting cards featuring
pictures of different things were also "in" during the 1920's.
