It’s mission accomplished for little green army men. The molded plastic must-haves for generations of pretend soldiers were inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame on Thursday, along with the 1980’s stumper Rubik’s Cube, and bubbles.
The trio of toys takes its place alongside other classics including Barbie, G.I. Joe, Scrabble and the hula hoop after beating out nine other finalists including Fisher-Price Little People, American Girl dolls and My Little Pony. The tiny monochromatic heroes have been around since 1938, with ups and downs along the way, but after two years in the running they made the cut in 2014.
