About The Hall of Fame
The National Toy Hall of Fame is an American hall of fame that recognizes the contributions of toys and games that have sustained their popularity for many years. Criteria for induction include: icon status; longevity; discovery; and innovation.
The public can nominate toys online through the National Toy Hall of Fame website, via email, or by U.S. mail. Each year, an internal museum advisory committee comprised of curators, educators, and historians reviews the submitted nominations and pre-qualifies the twelve (12) toys that best meet the criteria for selection. Final selections are made on the advice of a national selection advisory committee comprised of historians, educators, and other individuals who exemplify learning, creativity, and discovery through their lives and careers.
You can go directly to the nomination form by clicking here. For assistance with the question, “Why does this toy deserve to be in the Hall of Fame?” we have some information below that will help you answer that question.
Inducted toys are selected on the basis of the following criteria. In addition, we have given you some ideas of how Breyer meets each criterion that may assist with your nomination. And of course, please use your own words to explain why you think Breyer Horses deserves this special recognition.
