Did you know there was a National Toy Hall of Fame at Strong Nation Museum of Play in Rochester, New York? True story!

Inducted last year into the Toy Hall of Fame was the Stick (seriously?), and this year it's joined by a few other toys you might have heard of -- the ball, Fisher Price's "Big Wheel," and Nintendo's Game Boy!

Anyone have any classic Game Boy stories? You first memories of the handheld? Do tell!

You got a Game Boy emulator in my Oculus Rift

Yo, dawg. We heard you liked Game Boy, so we let you play virtual Game Boy via Oculus Rift with a huge headset with roms and a complicated setup instead of just handing you a Game Boy and Tetris. I kid. This is actually kind...more
