He's The One! Rubber Ducky Joins The Toy Hall Of Fame
Saying that "one toy stretches our gray matter; the other expands our sense of childhood wonder," the National Toy Hall of Fame announced Thursday that its 2013 inductees are the game of chess and the rubber duck.
This year's finalists that didn't make it into the Rochester, N.Y., hall:
The game of Clue
Fisher-Price Little People
Little green Army men
Magic 8 Ball
My Little Pony
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
We've written about the hall before. Yes, we're still hoping for sidewalk chalk to get in.
Also, with Rubber Ducky in the hall how can they leave out Ernie (and Bert, of course)?
