Toy Hall Of Fame List?

I found the National Toy Hall of Fame at the Strong National Museum of Play. Their motto has to do with learning, creativity, and discovery, which are not offered to all children either in the US or globally.
Who's In the National Toy Hall of Fame?
Is there a list of all the toys?

Toy Hall Of Fame features:

Vintage Toys

From 1998 to 2009 (over 10 years), 41 toys have been added and honored by the National Toy Hall of Fame for their long-term popularity and their effectiveness in creativity.

Materials Other than Metal and Plastic:

WOOD

Speaking of pioneer days, do you remember those wooden alphabet blocks that children played with long ago - they're plastic or soft sculpture today? They made it into the Hall of Fame in 2003.

POTATOES

Have any of you played with Mr. Potato HeadŽ? The toy is plastic now, but once, it was a box of plastic parts that you stuck into a real potato. Children cried when their mothers threw out those rotten potatoes. Our potato freind was added to the Hall of Fame in 2000.

CARDBOARD (?)

Kids often like to lay in the boxes left over from Christmas and birthday gifts. Cats and dogs like them as well. For all these reasons, the simple cardboard box was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005. What would extraterrestrial archeologists think if they found these 1,000 years hence?

Hmmm - If cardbard boxes can be in the Hall of Fame, then why not "Log" from Ren and Stimpy?

TREE BRANCHES

The `"stick: was accepted into the Hall of Fame in 2008 on the basis of being free and able to stimulate the imagination.

Here's the National Toy Hall of Fame's Web site which lists all 44 inducted toys.

This year, the ball (in all its varied and colorful forms) was also inducted!
