The National Toy Hall of Fame unveiled its list for the 2013 hall of fame finalists. As YNN's Kate Welshofer reports, two new toys will be inducted into the hall of fame in November.
ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The National Toy Hall of Fame announced its 12 finalists for this year's induction competition.
This year's nominees are:
•Green Army Men
•My Little Pony
•Magic 8 Ball
•Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
According to hall of fame officials, the toys are selected for several reasons.
"They have to have longevity. Have to have been on the market at least twenty years so both parents and kids could have played with the same toy," said Christopher Bensch, Chief Curator. "These are toys that are iconic, easily recognizable. Nobody would mix any of these up with anything else. And finally these are toys that encourage learning, creativity and discovery."
Two of the finalists will be selected to the Hall of Fame on November 7. To vote for your favorite toy, head to www.toyhalloffame.org.
