Every year, three toys are inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame.

This year, the honor was bestowed upon these three toys:

Sidewalk Chalk

Baby Nancy


The Hall of Fame is located at the Strong National Museum of Play, in Rochester, New York. Chris Bensch, the museum's chief curator, told CNN, "It may seem frivolous, but this year has really been a fine example of how toys contribute to joy, laughter and imagination."

This year, the other finalists included bingo, Breyer Horses, Lite-Brite, Masters of the Universe, My Little Pony, Risk, Sorry!, Tamagotchi, and Yahtzee.
