Non-Toys That Also Belong in the Toy Hall of Fame

One of the toys inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame this year is Sand. Here are some other non-toys we played with that deserve consideration for future induction.

  • The wrapping paper tube that became a lightsaber to whack our little brother.
  • Mom’s yardstick we used for playing “Let’s See What Rolls Out from Under the Sofa.”
  • The empty Band-Aid tin we used for priceless artifacts like gum and army men.
  • The sofa cushions we stacked into a fort that nobody was allowed in unless they knew the password.  Which was usually “Fart Face.”
  • Paper clips we linked to create exquisite necklaces and dangle earrings.
  • Tongs we used for countless rounds of “Retrieve the Dead Goldfish.”
  • The tube sock we transformed into a foul-mouthed Muppet.
  • Tree roots that prevented countless breakaway touchdowns in backyard football games.
