As we get ready for the Christmas crunch, many “best toy” lists will come and go. They’ll likely feature something from Angry Birds, the latest dancing Elmo, and a wild microscope – but will they last?
My boys have all the latest and greatest toys a kid could ask for. They each have their own iPad and boxes of trains, cars, Transformers, Lego, and puppets. Still, nothing can match the treasures of Nana’s toybox. My mother kept some Fisher Price gear for more than 30 years waiting for grandchildren, and it is those toys that they will play with for hours and hours and hours when visiting their grandparents.
So it makes me wonder: are we trying too hard with the toys we buy our kids? Is simpler better?
On November 15, the Toy Hall of Fame will announce the newest inductees to the list of the greatest toys of all time. After the jump, check out the toys that are already in the National Toy Hall Of Fame. How many toys that you will stuff under your tree this year would make the cut for your grandchildren?
