The Strong National Museum of Play has announced its twelve finalists for induction to the Toy Hall of Fame this year. 

I have to tell you that when the annual list of finalists is released, there are always a few that make me say: 'That's not a toy.'

Cardboard box. Is that a toy? As the father of a toddler, I can tell you that yes it is. One of my son's favorites in fact.

Among this year's nominees is sand. Again, sand...a toy?

As Nicholas Ricketts from the Strong Museum explained on the Keeler in the Morning Show, sand - considering all the things you can make with it and do in it - is a very popular 'toy'. The inductees will be announced on November 9th.

Here are the finalists:

  • Clue
  • Magic 8 Ball
  • Matchbox Cars
  • My Little Pony
  • Paper Airplane
  • PEZ Candy Dispenser
  • Play Food
  • Risk
  • Sand
  • Transformers
  • UNO
  • Wiffle Ball
