A new class of classics have been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
Magic 8 Ball, Mattel's UNO, and pinball edged out nine other finalists, including American Girl Dolls, chalk, Chutes and Ladders, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Masters of the Universe, sled, tic-tac-toe, Tickle Me Elmo, and Tudor Electric Football.
The Hall of Fame selection committee consults with historians and educators before making its decision. Toys are chosen based on criteria like longevity and influence on toy design.
"Through the National Toy Hall of Fame, the Strong recognizes outstanding toys that have engaged multiple generations over time, inspiring them to learn, create, and discover through play," said Vice President for Collections, Christopher Bensch.
The Hall of Fame has been around since 1998. All of the winners are on display at the Strong National Museum of Play.
