Your Favorite Toy Might Not Be A Toy!
Item from today's show gram says the 'stick' is in the Toy Hall Of Fame, inducted in 2008. There are 2 other toys that weren't "toys" when that came out, but are in the HOF.
Cardboard box, from 2005, and blanket in 2011. Blanket was kinda iffy for me because I was picturing Linus from Peanuts, and not really a toy at all. Then a listener reminded me about making forts in the living room. Hell yeah.
Then we put it out there--what toy that's NOT a toy belongs in the running (they announce in October, and I think on the link you can nominate toys) for 2015? Our 3 best were: ceiling fan, paper shredder, and our overwhelming favorite, pots and pans drum set.
