Nominees For The National Toy Hall Of Fame Are Announced. Go Chalk!

The Strong National Museum of Play, home to all things toy, has announced the nominees for the 2018 National Toy Hall of Fame. The eventual winner will shared these hallowed grounds with the like of last years Whiffle Ball, Clue, and Paper Airplanes, as well as some pretty strange winners, such as my personal favorite, the STICK (really, it won in 2008). This year’s nominees are no less eclectic, and include board games UNO, Chutes and Ladders, and Tudor’s Electronic Football – remember the vibrating football game from the 1960s? Also included are Chalk, American Girls Dolls, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, the Magic 8-Ball, Tic-Tac-Toe, Sleds, Pinball, Tickle Me Elmo, and … Masters Of The Universe! For the full list, check out the website here. Set your alarms, the new inductees will be announced on Thursday, November 8 at 10:30am.
