OMG, I had a gig there recently--whoo, hoo! What's even more bizarrely coincidental is that my chain-reaction gadget I created is kinda-sorta related to dominoes. Good to see them incorporated into the Hall of Fame--they actually have a display with Lionel trains that tries to incorporate every Hall of Fame toy in the design from Tinkertoys to Play-Doh.

The Toy Hall of Fame is part of the National Toy Museum / Strong Museum in Rochester, New York and is well worth the visit. They have an awesome collection of vintage arcade video games in mint condition and I went bonkers playing old classics like Dig Dug and Food Fight. They have a huge assortment of other games from dollhouses of the 1800s to Star Wars action figures. The first floor of the museum has one of the largest children's museums in the country. They also have an awesome indoor butterfly garden on top of that. And if you're in Rochester, definitely be sure to check out the George Eastman House, especially if you're a fan of old movie equipment...

The Toy Hall of Fame a few years ago allowed Raggedy Ann to be admitted.
This is many years after she at one time was considered a possible Disney character...
She was at the Disney studio then thrown off the property.
Walt had her removed on a morals clause in her contract.

Because of so much screaming near Pinocchio's dressing room,
They entered his dressing room and found Raggedy Ann sitting on Pinocchio's face
screaming, "LIE to ME!, Lie to Me!"

dominoes are not a toy, they're serious business
