Dungeons & Dragons Inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame

Nothing will make you feel old like seeing new inductees into various Halls of Fame, because that doesn't happen until they've been around a long time. It's hard to believe the game Dungeons & Dragons has been around since 1974, but there it is as a new inductee into the Toy Hall of Fame.

The Hall is housed at the Strong museum in Rochester, which also has a Video Game Hall of Fame. The toy hall, which dates back to 1998, now has 62 entries. D&D was one of three inductees this year alongside Fisher Price’s Little People playsets and the humble garden swing. Inductees are selected based on having “inspired creative play and enjoyed popularity over a sustained period.”

Wait a ... they've only had a toy hall of fame since 97? Holy crap they do hall of fames now for things that have only been around 10 years. And toys just got one 20 years ago? I say way back date to 1897 because surely there are so many toys that should be in this. :D

Well, they only started in 1998 and they only induct a few toys each year. Another one of this year's inductees is "the swing" which has been around for thousands of years.
