A classic toy dating from prehistoric times, the stick, has been inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame at Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York.
Previous inductees range from the bicycle and Mr. Potato Head to Crayola crayons and the cardboard box.
Curators . . . praised (the stick’s) all-purpose, all-natural, no-cost qualities and its ability to serve either as raw material or an appendage transformed by imaginations into something else.
About two minutes into the video, you’ll see the ceremonial entrance of the stick as it passes under an arch of raised sticks. As an added play bonus, it’s in a cardboard box.
At The Corner, Jonah Goldberg wonders when the snowball will be recognized.
