FINALISTS FOR THE 2018 TOY HALL OF FAME

The National Toy Hall of Fame announced this year’s 12 finalists.  And three of the toys will be inducted later this fall. Two of them were also nominated last year but didn’t make it in . . . Uno cards, and the Magic 8-Ball.  And it’s a pretty strong field this year, so it might be tough for them again.

The 12 nominees are . . .

American Girl Dolls

Chalk

“Chutes and Ladders”

The Magic 8-Ball

Masters of the Universe action figures

Pinball

The sled

Tic-Tac-Toe

Tickle Me Elmo .

Electric Football  Uno

The Fisher-Price Corn Popper.

The three toys that make it in will be announced on November 8th.  Last year’s inductees were “Clue”, the Wiffle Ball, and the paper airplane.
