American Girl dolls are inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame

Launched in 1995, the modern line of Truly Me dolls, with its variety of skin, hair and gender tones, allowed children to choose a doll that resembles them.


“Rowland’s formula, which combines puppet play with history lessons, worked, in her words, like a chocolate cake with vitamins,” said curator Michelle Parnett-Dwyer. “In an era when some education experts argued that there was little history in school curriculum, this toy could very well fill the void.”

Risk, based on the French game Le Conquete du Monde, was first published in the US in 1959 and continues to influence other board games, Hall officials said. It invites players to control armies and conquer the world on the playing field, which is a map of the continents.

“Risk has become one of the most popular board games of all time, inspiring a new corps of passionate gamers and influencing other games that started the hobby of wargaming – and as a result, European games like The Settlers of Catan, which many people enjoy today.” , curator Nicholas Ricketts said.

According to the Hall of Fame, located at The Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY, Sand has been honored for “the ability to tactically, physically, collaborate, creatively and independently play free-play.”

“Children recognize sand as a creative material that can be poured, scooped, sieved, raked and measured,” the message says. “Even better is wet sand, because kids can design, shape and sculpt.”
