These 12 toys represent the wide scope of playthings – from simple sidewalk chalk that has its roots in ancient times, to Baby Nancy, which proved a turning point in the representation of race in dolls, to the more-recent, highly innovative Tamagotchi… Whether old or new, or simple or high-tech, all 12 of these toy finalists greatly influenced the world of play.

Three of the inductees will be chosen by a panel of judges, while three will be chosen by the public via the “Player’s Choice” ballot at Voting is open until Sept. 16.
