All finalists for 2020 Hall of Fame induction!  Uh, TOYS, that is!

1-Build a tower of wooden blocks; take turns pulling out a block before watching it tumble.

2-Based on the ancient Indian cross, players move their pieces around the board, attempting to get all pieces “home” before any other player.

3-Introduced in 1981 (before the end of the decade, more than 150 million would be sold), the horses feature colorful bodies, manes and a unique symbol on one or both sides of their flanks (“cutie marks”).

4-Popular at Senior Centers and Catholic gatherings J, players match numbers printed in different arrangements on cards.

5-The standard schoolroom item became a popular tool for every home’s driveway or front cement path.

6-Began as Mattel product, catapulted into TV and cinematic fame featuring heroes such as He-Man in kingdoms of Eternia and Grayskull.

7-A strategy board game of diplomacy, conflict and conquest.  Hmmm—sounds like politics today!

8-Launched 1967, a box with small colored plastic pegs that can be creatively illuminated.

9-“Rolled out” in 1956, the game consists of rolling five dice to make certain combinations.

10-So … this is tough.  I dropped off Baby Nancy and Tamagotchi (the other two for total of 12 on the list) in favor of these.  Both Joni and I would be likely collectors of these models of a favorite animal.  Get as close as you can because I’m thinking most likely no one will get the brand here!  (I will bring a couple of mine from the 50s for show and tell!)
