The U-S National Toy Hall of Fame has revealed the top 12 toy finalists for 2016.
- bubble wrap
- Care Bears
- colouring books
- Dungeons & Dragons
- Fisher-Price Little People
- Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots
Only two or three of these finalists will join other iconic toys in the hall and sit alongside past inductees such as Barbie, Monopoly, Star Wars action figures, and Mr. Potato Head.
Last year, the game Twister, along with the puppet and Super Soaker squirt gun were inducted.
To be recognized by the hall, toys must have lasted across generations, influenced the way toys are designed or played with, and fostered learning or creativity through play.
