Toy Industry Hall of Fame

In 1984, the Toy Industry Hall of Fame was established to recognize the people behind the power of play and the wonderful toys that facilitate it. 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.

The new, state-of-the-art Toy Halls of Fame exhibit was unveiled at The Strong museum in Rochester, NY on September 17, 2015. This cutting-edge installation features inductees of both the Toy Industry Hall of Fame and National Toy Hall of Fame under one roof, showcasing the toys beloved by generations and the toy industry trailblazers who helped bring those toys to life.
