In a move that will delight toy lovers everywhere, the National Toy Hall of Fame announced 12 nominees for induction this year, including some of our personal faves, like the Magic 8 Ball, little green army men and ‘Star Wars’ action figures.

To date, 49 toys have made it into the Hall of Fame, including such classics as Slinky and Play-Doh. Two of the 12 nominees will be inducted this year.

The rest of the nominees include the venerable tea set, Clue, Dominoes, Lite-Brite, Pogo Stick, Sidewalk Chalk, Simon, Twister and the Fisher-Price Corn Popper.

And although it might sound like a joke, the Hall of Fame has even inducted “the stick” and “the cardbox box” in the past. But as any kid knows, those can be better than store-bought toys with a little imagination.

What do you think of this year’s nominees? Which toys should win? Are any of your favorites missing?
