The National Toy Hall of Fame announced the finalists for entry into the museum Tuesday, with a number of famous toys making the list.
The nominees include bubble wrap, Care Bears, Clue, coloring books, Dungeons & Dragons, Fisher-Price Little People, Nerf, pinball, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, the swing, Transformers and Uno.
A panel of historians, educators and other experts will decide which toys, if any, will make the cut. Toys that are chosen have lasted across generations and influenced the way that toys are played with.
Notable Hall of Fame inductees include Hot Wheels, the cardboard box, Silly Putty, Barbie and a stick. In 2015, Twister, the puppet and the Super Soaker squirt gun were inducted.
In a poll on the National Toy Hall of Fame website’s homepage, Fisher-Price Little People were in the lead at the time of writing with 28 votes, while coloring books are in second with 21 votes and Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots are in third with 20 votes.
