Two very different toys have made it into the National Toy Hall of Fame…one ancient…one fairly recent. The game of chess was inducted yesterday as a part of the 2013 class. And the rubber duck made it in as well. Ernie from Sesame Street will be happy to hear that. They beat out 10 other finalists: including bubbles, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, and the Pac-Man video game. Online polls had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony running strong, but in the end a national selection committee voted in the winners.
