This year’s inductees into the National Toy Hall of Fame include the baby doll, the skateboard and—oddly enough—the stick. As described in an article on NPR‘s website, the Toy Hall of Fame cites the variety of ways you can use the stick as a plaything, from turning it into a magic wand or fishing pole or sword fighting with friends. The stick’s moment of glory follows the 2005 induction of the cardboard box into the Toy Hall of Fame as well.
What do you think about the Toy Hall of Fame’s decision? Is a stick too simple to be considered a toy, or does this decision speak to the heart of a child’s ability to create pure magic using a little imagination? You tell us!
