Toy Industry Hall of Fame

In 1984, the Toy Industry Hall of Fame was established to recognize the people behind the power of play. Every year for the past three decades, members of the industry have proudly nominated hundreds of men and women – from toy inventors to toy retailers – who have made their mark on the industry and created a love of play in the hearts of children of all ages. 

Who will join their ranks in 2018?

The call for nominations for inductees into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame is now closed.

Candidates may be nominated by any stakeholder in the toy industry (membership in The Toy Association is not required); voting to select the 2018 inductees is restricted to members only. See additional nomination and selection details below.
