Pots and pans and paper airplanes are among the 12 finalists for the National Toy Hall of Fame.

They will be up against tough competition. Like American Girl dolls and the board game Operation. How about little green Army men and bubbles?

Here are the other 2014 nominees. Fisher-Price Little People, My Little Pony, Rubik's Cube, Slip 'N Slide, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Toys. Also, the toy trucks sold each holiday shopping season at Hess gas stations.

The hall of fame is at The Strong museum in Rochester, New York. Two winners will be inducted Nov. 6.

Anyone can nominate a toy. A committee votes in the winners.

The rubber duck and chess were last year's winners. Fifty-one other toys have been inducted. The hall was established in 1998.

Other past winners include Etch A Sketch, Play-Doh, Barbie, Mr. Potato Head and the Frisbee.

The cardboard box and stick have also made the hall. Kids still love to turn them into play things.

Can you think of a special toy that deserves to be in the Hall of Fame?

    I think an american girl doll is a good one because kids like acting like a mom. american girl dolls are good for kids because they like to pretend to feed them and change them. american girl dolls are good because kids can just do a bunch of stuff with them

    I believe that everything should be in the hall of fame, even guns, so people can look at them.

    I think some of the toys that are in there don't need to be in there beacuse the are lots more toys that should be there instead of the ones there.The toys that are more popular or more kids play with them should be in there like cars, and plastic animals should be in the Hall of Fame.

    I like paper airplanes the best because if one brakes you can make another one.The thing is paper cost money.

    I think that a lot of toys can be put in ''The Hall of Fame''. Like any toy in the world,so that kids can play with the toys and be able to buy them anywhere and everywhere.So I think that every kid can find and keep whatever they want to keep.I think that kids should be able to pick out toys they want.
