NIntendo Groundbreaker is Now a Hall of Famer

Ever heard of The National Toy Hall of Fame? Well neither have I until this week when they inducted Nintendo's original Game Boy into its collective of honored entertainment products. Ranked #1 all-time in sales of handheld video game systems, the Game Boy platform has been around for over 20 years. The traits that the Hall of Fame highlighted as grounds for inducting Nintendo's portable pioneer are its efficient design, multiplayer capabilities and library of innovative games. Nine other famed toys fell short of beating out the original Game Boy this year, including Rubik's Cube and Hot Wheels. The only other handheld gaming system to be inducted into The National Toy Hall of Fame is the Atari 2600 which was selected back in 2007.
