Who didn’t play with toys as a kid? And many of these we still play with as an adult!

The National Toy Hall of Fame has announced the 12 finalists for 2019.  Quite a few, in my opinion, should be in.

Usually 2 or three get selected every year.  Last year the Magic 8 Ball, Pinball Machine, and Uno were selected.  All worthy choices. Here is the list for this year:

Care Bears…coloring books, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Jenga, Magic The Gathering cards, He-Man, Matchbox Cars, My Little Pony, Nerf Guns, Risk, The Top, and the smartphone.  Click HERE for more info.

You can also cast a vote!  Go to ToyHallOfFame.org and you can be a part of the first ever public vote!  There are normally 23 committee members that vote and for the first time they are letting the public vote as the 24th member.

For what it is worth…If I had to vote for 3 to get in…Matchbox Cars, Jenga, and the Fischer Price Corn Popper would get my votes.
