This morning The Strong National Museum of Play announced the 2018 Toy Hall of Fame nominees. Last year we saw Clue, Wiffle Ball, and Dungeons & Dragons enter into the Hall of Fame. This year the nominees are: American Girl dolls, chalk, Chutes & Ladders, Magic 8 Ball, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Masters of the Universe, pinball, sled, tic-tac-toe, Tickle Me Elmo, Tudor Electric Football, and UNO. I have a strong feeling about UNO this year since it’s been a nominee for three years in a row. I’d say that Magic 8 Ball has a chance as it was also on the list last year, but it has been on the list before: 2013, 2010, 2008 — and I might have missed another year or two in there. Thus, I’m starting to think that Magic 8 Ball is just the perpetual nominee! What do you think of this year’s list? And how do you feel about the generics like tic-tac-toe?
