According to WILX-TV 10, the National Toy Hall of Fame is out with this year's finalists.  This may be the year that chalk makes its mark on the western New York hall, or American Girl surpasses He-Man and Masters of the Universe.

Also in the running is Uno and Magic 8 Ball, along with Chutes and Ladders, the Fisher Price Corn Popper, Pinball, the Sled, Tic-Tac-Toe which I personally love to play, and Tickle Me Elmo.

A committee of experts will choose which of the finalists should take their place alongside other toy box mainstays like Barbie and Play-Doh.

The induction ceremony is Nov. 8 at the Strong museum in Rochester, where the National Toy Hall of Fame is located.
