The Magic 8 Ball, Uno and pinball are now in 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.

Here are some fun facts about the inductees: 

  • 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.
  • Pinball now takes up innocent space in many arcades and bars across the U.S even though before it was seen as a form of gambling.
