The finalists are: Bubbles, chess, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, little green Army men, the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf toys, the Pac-Man video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the scooter and the rubber duck.

A national selection committee will vote on which two will take their place alongside last year's winners: dominoes and "Star Wars" action figures.

Anyone can nominate a toy for induction. A museum committee compiles the list of finalists based on a toy's longevity, innovation and other attributes.
