Amazingly Fun: The Classic Toys in the National Toy Hall of Fame

Amazingly Fun: The Classic Toys in the National Toy Hall of Fame Online

Chris Bensch from the The Strong National Museum of Play, will present this fun discussion on the National Toy Hall of Fame.What does it take for a toy to earn its way into the National Toy Hall of Fame? Why do some toys start as fads and wind up being timeless? Learn the answers to these and other questions in this entertaining hands-on presentation, complete with examples of the 74 toys presently in the National Toy Hall of Fame. The lecture recounts the surprising histories of some of America’s best-loved toys—Barbie, GI Joe, the Slinky, the Hula Hoop—and offers a glimpse of their paths to hall of fame status. And, if your favorite toy hasn’t received the recognition it so richly deserves, you can nominate it!
