THE CLASSICS: The rubber duck has squeaked out a win for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame. The bath toy joins the ancient game of chess in the class of 2013 inducted Thursday.
THE ALSO-RANS: The pair beat out 10 other finalists for a spot in the 15-year-old hall. The finalists that didn't make the cut include bubbles, the board game Clue and little green Army men.
PREVIOUS INDUCTEES: Among the members of the Toy Hall of Fame are Barbie, Lego, Lionel Trains, and the stick.
Our readers voted for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and My Little Pony to enter the hall of fame, but we did not influence their final decision somehow.
