Twister makes the National Toy Hall of Fame
November 8, 2015 - 4:58pm
This year in the National Toy Hall of Fame, a board game was selected as one of the three inductees! Twister, Puppet, and Super Soaker were the three selections from the twelve finalists, which also included another board game - Battleship.
The National Toy Hall of Fame® at The Strong, established in 1998, recognizes toys that have inspired creative play and enjoyed popularity over a sustained period. Each year, the prestigious hall inducts new honorees and showcases both new and historic versions of classic toys beloved by generations.Other board games have also been included over the years - Chess, Candy Land, and Scrabble to name a few. It's nice to see board games included in the list of 'classic toys beloved by generations,' and hopefully the board games we have now will have the same lasting popularity as the older board games have seen.
