The National Toy Hall of Fame announced their finalists yesterday for this year’s induction. The finalists are My Little Pony, Masters of the Universe, Care Bears, Risk, Jenga, Magic the Gathering, Matchbox Cars, Nerf Blaster, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, coloring book, and smartphone.
In order to be inducted, a toy must have icon status as being widely recognized, longevity, be seen as a catalyst for discovery, and innovation.
Fans can cast their votes online for finalists from September 11 – 18. The three toys that receive the most public votes will be added to the other top three submissions voted upon by the 23 members of the National Selection Advisory Committee.
The final inductees will be announced on November 7.
