Toy Hall of Fame inducts Cabbage Patch Kids, baseball cards
The Hall of Fame, part of The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York, announced its inductees for this year’s baseball cards, Cabbage Patch Kids, the Fisher-Price Corn-Popper and Nerf.
Fischer-Price Corn Popper was chosen by popular vote from a special field of “Forgotten Five” toys. The other three inductees were chosen from 12 finalists including Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Battleship, Choose Your Own Adventure books and Ken. Christopher Bensch, vice president for collections and chief curator at the museum, said, “Each toy inducted this year brings its own unique form of play. Baseball cards encourage lifelong playing and collection. Cabbage Patch Kids continues to encourage imagination and storytelling for kids. Fisher-Price Corn Popper is a great activity for toddlers. Nerf toys are designed for indoor and outdoor activity, and they often find kids and grownups playing together.”

Anxiety, voiced by Maya Hawke, might be new to the crew, but she’s not really the type to take a back seat. In the trailer, Riley turns 13 and is still in a whirlwind of emotions. Hawke is joined by Amy Poehler as Joy, Phyllis Smith as Sadness, Lewis Black as Anger, Tony Hale as Fear, and Liza Lapira as Disgust. Inside Out 2 comes to theatres in June 2024.
