Yes, that's right my friends. For all of us who played Pokemon Red or Blue, Tetris and Dr. Mario, our oldest portable video gaming friend has finally been recognized as being at least as awesome as the Easy Bake Oven, Lincoln Logs, and the Stick. Woo!

I bet it's in there because of how tanky it is. I've dropped it a hell lot of times, and I'm the second owner. My young cousins had it, and you know what little kids do to their stuff, then I had it. It's now gathering dust in a friend's house since I have a DS. :3

Ah, how I miss the good times involving me, my GBC, and Pokemon Red. Best toy ever!

The Gameboy is not a toy, it is a way of life!

I'm with Hoshika, why wasn't it there already? The Gameboy was way more groundbreaking than Lincoln Logs and that other menial stuff.

Better late than never, I suppose.

Dude, the freaking BALL only just got put in. They started with like 7 in 1992 and have added two or three every year.

Good job. =D

Why was it not inducted sooner? I think it's a variable time lag. The Game Boy just got the short end of the stick. Anyway, it's in there now; rejoice! =D Oh wait, you did.

Ah, those days...

My question is, Why wasn't the Gameboy inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame like 3 years ago?

I used to love my Game Boy.
Long car trips, boring television programming and a way to pass time when you're grounded and stuck in your room!
