The National Toy Hall of Fame Announces This Year’s Inductees

Hand me the envelope, and the winner is:Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia have out muscled little green army men for a spot in the National Toy Hall of Fame. “Star Wars” action figures join centuries old dominoes inn the class of 2012.

A committee chose them from among 12 finalists to enter the hall of fame in Rochester, New York. “Star Wars” action figures went on sale in 1978 following the release of the movie and sold until 1985. They were then brought back in the mid 1990′s and are still being sold today. Dominoes originated in China way back in the 1300′s and are still being sold and played today.

The toys beat out Clue, the Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Lite-Brite, the Magic 8 Ball, the pogo stick, sidewalk chalk, Simon, and Twister to enter the hall of fame.

I was pulling for the army men and Twister. Well, maybe next year!!!
