ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) – At long last, a big honor for the Little People.
After seven times as finalists for the National Toy Hall of Fame, the tiny tenants of Fisher-Price’s house, barn and school bus were enshrined on Thursday.
They are joined by the swing and Dungeons & Dragons in the hall’s class of 2016.
Since being introduced in 1959, more than 2 billion Little People have been sold.
Fellow inductee the swing was recognized for its longevity over centuries.
The 1974 role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons is credited with influencing popular electronic games like World of Warcraft.
The inductees were chosen over other finalists: Care Bears, Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots, Transformers, Nerf foam balls, Clue, Uno, pinball, coloring books and bubble wrap.
