Dave Campbell, owner, Amazing Toys in Great Falls, Mont., offers everything from novice-level puzzles to an 18,000-piece challenge.

allout 4, LEGO Dimensions and anything Star Wars are topping children’s wish lists. But long after youngsters have moved on to the next hot toy, classic games and puzzles remain strong sellers for American retailers, year after year. “Monopoly, Scrabble - they’re always good sellers,” said Taylor St. John, the manager at Giggles Toys & More in Bozeman, Mont.

Around the country, a survey of retailers in the weeks leading up to Christmas 2015 confirmed that while teens gravitate toward the latest video game, their parents and grandparents go for the classics - the evergreen blocks, jigsaw puzzles and board games that stand the test of time. “It’s fun to remind people of what they liked when they were little,” St. John said.
