Toy Hall of Fame inducts new "members"
The Magic 8 Ball, Uno and pinball are officially legends – as they’re now enshrined in the Toy Hall of Fame. Since 1998, the Hall has inducted several notable Toys that have had a large impact on child play like Barbie, Play-Doh and Crayola crayons.
- The Magic 8 Ball has lost most of its novelty since the 1900s but remains a go-to for random questions about the unknown.
- The card game Uno was invented by an Ohio barber in 1971 changing family game nights everywhere.
- And, pinball, despite its early shady beginnings in gambling, now takes up innocent space in many arcades and bars across the U.S.
The iconic features beat out another Hall of Fame finalist, the American Girl Doll.

A unique way to get past baggage fees!!
Budget airline Ryanair recently updated their carry-on baggage policies, allowing only one carry-on bag that can fit under the seat. So, one passenger found a creative way to avoid the extra luggage fees for his flight to Belfast, Ireland.
Lee Cimono, a man from England, originally booked the flight for his birthday with Ryanair, an airline he regularly uses. He ended up finding a way to board the flight with everything he needed without shelling out any extra cash… by sewing an entire carry-on suitcase’s worth of items into the lining of his coat. In a video, he documents the entire process – which totally worked, by the way.
In the clip, he’s shown getting underwear, pants, shirts, even Ziploc bags full of toiletries sewed into the one coat’s lining. The coat was obviously a little bulky by the end of it, but at least he got to Belfast with all his stuff… not to mention his birthday money. And according to Independent.ie, he wants to auction the coat off, with half of the profits benefitting a charity of Ryanair’s choice. Check out the video to the right.
