The rubber duck and the ancient game of chess have landed inductions into the National Toy Hall of Fame today, Thursday, November 7, 2013.

The pair beat out 10 other finalists: 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. Online voting determined the results.

Talk about opposite sides of the spectrum: a game that calls for deep concentration and skill and a ducky that floats in tub. The rubber ducky is more my speed, LOL!
