Rubber duck & chess edge Fisher-Price's 'Little People' & others for Hall of Fame nods

There is a National Toy Hall of Fame? Why, of course. It happens to be just down the road in Rochester. Two toys -- the rubber duck and game of chess -- were named as inductees today.

Our Susan Martin selected the National Museum of Play at the Strong, where the hall is located, as one of Five Fun Day Trips for the Whole Family in July. If you dig deeper into our archives you can find a more thorough profile of the museum.

All right, here is more on this year's selection process. Check out this photo gallery to jog your memory about some of these classics.
