The National Toy Hall of Fame is inducting two toys into its class of 2013.
The toys, selected from among 12 finalists, will be enshrined among other famous playthings during a program Thursday morning at The Strong museum in Rochester, where the 15-year-old hall is located. They will join last year's winners: dominoes and "Star Wars" action figures.
This year's finalists are: Bubbles, chess, 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, the scooter and the rubber duck.
A museum committee of curators, educators and historians choose the finalists based on their longevity, innovation, and other attributes.
