National Toy Hall of Fame nominees
Twelve finalists have been announced for induction to the National Toy Hall of Fame. Two finalists will be selected for induction in November.
Forty-six toys currently are in the Hall of Fame, including Crayola crayons, Silly Putty, Mr. Potato Head, and the Easy-Bake Oven. Toys are chosen for induction based on several criteria, including "icon status," longevity, and innovation, museum officials said.
