The Strong’s National Toy Hall of Fame has revealed the 12 iconic toys that are in the running to take their place in the hallowed halls of the museum this November. Among the finalists are a few that have been up for the honor before, such as My Little Pony, Matchbox cars, and Masters of the Universe.

This year they’ll face off against the Care Bears, Fisher-Price Corn Popper, Jenga, Magic the Gathering, the NERF Blaster, Risk, and two devices on completely opposite ends of the spectrum: the coloring book and the smartphone.

Fans can vote for their favorite finalists as part of a “Player’s Choice” ballot at toyhalloffame.org. The three toys that receive the most public votes will be submitted and will join the other top three submissions by members of the National Selection Advisory Committee.

The final 2019 toy inductees, chosen based on the ballots, will be announced at The Strong museum on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 10:30 a.m.
