Rubber duck, chess voted into Toy Hall of Fame
The rubber duck and the ancient game of chess have reached the pinnacle of toy stardom -- the two are 2014 inductees into the Toy Hall of Fame.
It's no easy vote. The toys face harsh criteria such as whether they've reached icon status, are innovative, or have longevity.
A national committee made up of 23 experts including toy collectors, designers, and psychologists vote in the winners.
This year's finalists included Bubbles, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, little green Army men, the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf toys, the Pac-Man video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and the scooter.
