I just found out that there is a National Museum of Play in Rochester NY. It looks like a fabulous place:

And as if that's not cool enough, inside the museum is the National Toy Hall of Fame. Awesome! I didn't know such a thing existed. There are currently 46 toys that have been officially inducted into the hall of fame. You can see them here. The list is lovely to look at. Many great toys of the past are there and seeing them is quite nostalgic. Play doh, monopoly, big wheels, crayola crayons, ... It's lovely. But, I was sad, surprised, and shocked to find out that rubber ducks are not in the hall of fame! I can not believe that such an iconic toy hasn't been inducted.

There is good news however. We have time to make a difference. You can nominate your favorite bathtime friend. The nominations for 2010 are complete, but the nominations for 2011 are still open. We have until July 29th to put in the nomination.

Nominate Here by July 29th

I'm about to put in RubaDuck's nomination. I hope the web form will let me enter the essay ducklips wrote.

Hey, I submitted a nomination, too! It was fast and easy. The only required information is your name, age, city, state, the name of the toy and the reasons you want to nominate it. Took less than a minute to do. I also sent the link to some friends, so hopefully we will get rubber ducks the recognition they deserve.

It appears that the toy hall of fame has taken down their nomination page. I didn't see the 2011 winners listed though so I guess they haven't been chosen yet.

I just popped over to the Toy Hall of Fame website to see what's new and it looks like they've named the finalists for 2011. Rubber ducks did not make the cut this year. They will be doing the induction for 2011 winners on Nov 10, 2011.

We'll post the link for nominations next year, as soon as we hear. Persistence will pay off!
