SPECIAL EVENT: Toy Hall of Fame at Strong 

Thursday, November 15, will be a big day for some of the toys residing at the National Museum of Play (1 Manhattan Square). At 10:30 a.m., the museum will host its annual Toy Hall of Fame induction ceremony for toys that have "achieved longevity and national significance in the world of play and imagination." Current members of the Hall of Fame include the Slinky, LEGOs, hula hoops, various blocks and puzzles, and many more iconic toys.

Toy finalists that have made it thus far in the competition are Clue, dominoes, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Lite-Brite, little green army men, Magic 8 Ball, pogo stick, sidewalk chalk, Simon, "Star Wars" action figures, tea set, and Twister. With a list of such qualified contestants, the judges will no doubt have a tough time deliberating. May the best toy win!

The induction ceremony is included in regular museum admission, $13 (ages 2 and under free). The Museum of Play is open Monday-Thursday 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Friday-Saturday until 8 p.m., and Sunday noon-5 p.m. for more information call 263-2700 or visit
