National Toy Hall of Fame Reveals the 2020 Finalists
Which toys do you think should be added to the National Toy Hall of Fame this November?
The Hall of Fame, in Rochester, NY, announced today that there are 12 finalists that made the nominee list for this year's induction. Chances are, you've had just about every one in your house.
“These 12 toys represent the wide scope of playthings—from simple sidewalk chalk that has its roots in ancient times, to Baby Nancy, which proved a turning point in the representation of race in dolls, to the more-recent, highly innovative Tamagotchi,” says Christopher Bensch, vice president for collections. “Whether old or new, or simple of high-tech, all 12 of these toy finalists greatly influenced the world of play.”
Between September 9th and 16th, fans can vote on their favorites on the HOF's website. The three toys with the most votes will be in the induction ceremony on November 5th.
2020's Toy Hall of Fame Nominees Include:
- Baby Nancy Doll
- Breyer Horses
- Masters of the Universe
