The National Toy Hall of Fame in New York has inducted the Nintendo Gameboy into the hall of fame for revolutionizing the hand held gaming platform when it debuted in 1989. Additional inductees included the Big Wheel Tricycle launched by Lous Marx & Co in 1969 and the “Ball” in all its forms.

25 assorted balls including the Golf Ball, Basketball, Soccer ball, Football, bowling balls to Nerf balls were included with the induction of the “Ball” which was long overdue.

The National Toy Hall of fame is located in Rochester, NY and has existed for 11 years, inducting select toys each year into its hall of fame.
