Clas­sic toy fly­ing high

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

THE hum­ble paper aero­plane has fi­nally been recog­nised.

The sim­ple-to-cre­ate toy has been in­ducted into the Na­tional Toy Hall of Fame in the US, join­ing pre­vi­ous in­ductees the doll­house and the skip­ping rope.

The paper plane was joined by two oth­ers – the board game Clue and the Wif­fle Ball – at a cer­e­mony in Rochester.

To make the hall of fame, toys must have in­spired cre­ative play across gen­er­a­tions.

Other play­time sta­ples such as sand and the card game Uno, also made the fi­nals.

Join­ing them were the board game Risk, Magic 8 Ball, Match­box cars, My Lit­tle Pony and PEZ candy dis­penser.
