Which toy do you think is most worthy of joining icons such as LEGO, Monopoly, and the Rubik’s Cube in the National Toy Hall of Fame? Which of the finalists below do you think best meets the criteria of icon-status, longevity, discovery, and innovation.
The following 12 toys are finalists for induction into the National Toy Hall of Fame. The National Toy Hall of Fame receives thousands of nominations annually, and this year, fans may vote for their favorite finalists from September 11 to 18 as part of a “Player’s Choice” ballot at toyhalloffame.org. The three toys that receive the most public votes will be submitted and will join the other top-three submissions by members of the National Selection Advisory Committee. (The public will collectively act as one member of the 23-member committee.)
Only three will take their honored places in the hall this year when they are announced at a ceremony at The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester on Thursday, November 7 at 10:30 a.m.
