Not in Hall of Fame

The National Toy Hall of Fame has announced the Class of 2020, inducting Baby Nancy, Chalk and Jenga.  

Chosen by a panel of experts, these three toys beat out the other nine Finalists, Bingo, Breyer Horses, Lite-Brote, Masters of the Universe, My Little Pony, Risk, Sorry!, Tamagotchi and Yahtzee.

The first ever doll from Shindana Toys, Baby Nancy was the first baby black doll to look authentically black. The California based company was launched in 1968 by Operation Bootstrap, a non-profit organization that came into existence after the Watts riots.

Chalk can be traced back thousands of years, and have made its way to every playground in the United States.

Jenga was created by Leslie Scott from England, who derived the name from the Swahili word, “build”.
