Little People, Dungeons & Dragons top Toy Hall of Fame class

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — At long last, a big honor for the Little People.

After seven times as finalists for the National Toy Hall of Fame, the tiny tenants of Fisher-Price’s house, barn and school bus were enshrined on Thursday.

They are joined by the swing and Dungeons & Dragons in the hall’s class of 2016.

Since being introduced in 1959, more than 2 billion Little People have been sold.

Fellow inductee the swing was recognized for its longevity over centuries.

The 1974 role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons is credited with influencing popular electronic games like World of Warcraft.

The inductees were chosen over other finalists: Care Bears, Rock `Em Sock `Em Robots, Transformers, Nerf foam balls, Clue, Uno, pinball, coloring books and bubble wrap.
