Toy Hall of Fame Inducts 3 Classics

Last week on KobreGuide we showcased an appropriately whimsical video ode to the dozen nominees for induction into the National Toy Hall of Fame in Rochester, NY.

They ranged from the generic (paper airplane, playing cards, balls, sidewalk chalk, the toy tea set) to the commercial (Big Wheel, Cabbage Patch Kids, Game of Life, Hot Wheels, Nintendo Game Boy, Rubik's Cube, and Transformers).

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle videojournalist Will Yurman crafted a delightful video, "Nominees," that incorporated all 12 of them.

For those of you in suspense, the three winning inductees have been announced. Toy drumroll please... for the Ball, Big Wheel, and Game Boy.

Check out the "Nominees" video today before it disappears from our homepage!

(NOTE: When videos do disappear from the KobreGuide homepage after a week, guess where they go? To the KobreGuide Hall of Fame!)

By the way, you can read KobreGuide's excellent interview with Will Yurman here.
