    Pinball is not a toy.

    #4 2 years ago

    Pinball is like the biggest toy lol

    Yeah, looking at the competition on that website, it seems like "pinball" is a bit out of place (I could see tabletop toy pinballs being a more reasonable comparison to Care Bears and Rock 'em and Sock 'em robots). But hey, any exposure for pinball is a good thing, so have at it, I say.

    And let's not forget that competitive players are professional athletes!

    #7 2 years ago

    Yea like nascar drivers lol, pinball is an amusement device (big expensive toy).

    #8 2 years ago

    That would work well with their awesome pinball arcade they have at the museum!

    Ummm... GI Joe was inducted in 2004, Lionel Trains in 2006. I have no idea what SSP cars are but Hot Wheels went into the Hall of Fame back in 2011.

    Wow. Blast from the past. I used to frequent your store when I lived in DC back in the 90s (I think it's the same one). Great Italian bakery right there and the crazy ass comic shop owner who wouldn't uncover the tops of his boxes so you could shop. Glad to hear you're still there

    #13 2 years ago

    And SSPs were and are tremendous. One of my favorite childhood items is my Cheerios box-top Mail-away SSP. Great stuff

    I would be more worries about the bubble wrap! LOL

    #17 2 years ago

    Of all the pictures they could have chosen, they went with Super Mario Mushroom World - maybe that's why they think it's a toy?

    #18 2 years ago

    I know really, what pin has the best playfield toy...I would have to give it up to TZ and the powerball dispensing gumball machine!

    Had the Smash Up Derby SSP cars where you would smash them together, or into anything, and parts would fly off in all directions.
    Now that's a great toy!
