This is exciting! For the first time ever, fans are going to get to vote for their favorite toys on this list and help the pick the inductees! Through September 19 as part of a “Player’s Choice” ballot at toyhalloffame.org, people can vote!  The three toys that receive the most public votes will be submitted and will join the other top-three submissions by members of the National Selection Advisory Committee, according to a press release.

Since 1998, 65 toys have been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame and in a few months, more will be added to that list!
