I did. The pet rock's success was also a fact. So was the pet rock the biggest and greatest thing at the time? Hell no it was a rock in a box. It was a success though. There's no denying that right?
The pet rock was a commercial success but wasn't the "biggest and greatest thing at the time" because it's proportionality of sales was far from being the most sold product within its category (pets or novelty products).
It was listed as number 4 in Time's top ten toy crazes of all time in 2010.
