Toy Hall Of Fame Inducts Magic 8 Ball, Uno and Pinball

(New York, NY)  --  The Magic 8 Ball, Uno and pinball will now occupy the Toy Hall of Fame.  Since 1998, the Hall has inducted several notable toys that have had a large impact on child play like Barbie, Play-Doh and Crayola crayons.  The Magic 8 Ball has lost most of its novelty since the 1900s but remains a go-to for random questions about the unknown.  The card game Uno was invented by an Ohio barber in 1971 changing family game nights everywhere.  And, pinball, despite its early shady beginnings in gambling, now takes up innocent space in many arcades and bars across the U.S.  The iconic features beat out another Hall of Fame finalist, the American Girl Doll.
