ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The National Toy Hall of Fame is getting ready to induct its class of 2013.

Today, the hall revealed its 12 finalists, two of which will be enshrined at the Rochester museum Nov. 7.

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.
