Laura Lewis, Postmaster Toy Hall Of Dollhouse, Hot Wheels, Blanket by Ben Dobbin (AP and OfficialWire) The blanket, an all-purpose plaything as well as a comfort for generations of thumb-suckers landed Thursday(November 10) in the National Toy Hall of Fame [www.toyhalloffame.org] along with Hot Wheels and the dollhouse. The trio take their places at The Strong, a children's and cultural history museum in upstate New York, alongside 46 classics ranging from the bicycle, kite and teddy bear to Barbie, Jack-in- the-Box and Mr. Potato Head. Curators said the blanket was a special addition in the spirit of two earlier inductees, the cardboard box and the stick. They praised its ability to serve either as recreational raw material or an accessory transformed in myriad ways by a child's daydreams. "Every now and again we like to shake things up, remind folks there's play experiences that happen purely creatively ... rather than coming with rules, a path, a backstory you feel constrained into," said Christopher Bensch, the Rochester museum's chief curator. "Blankets have been keeping people warm for centuries, but they've also been heating up kids' imaginations," serving as magic carpets and superhero capes, a peek-a-boo veil, a chair-draped fortress or "an island of safety surrounded by sea monsters."

Longevity is a key criterion for getting into the 13-year-old hall, which was acquired in 2002 from A.C. Gilbert's Discovery Village in Salem, Oregon• Each toy must be widely recognized, foster learning, creativity or discovery through play, and endure in popularity over generations• Trying to create a toy that would be as big a success with boys as Barbie was with girls, Elliot Handler hit upon an idea for miniature die-cast vehicles with sleek designs. Hot Wheels were introduced in 1968 and the brand became a big hit. Handler, who died in July at age 95, grew Mattel Inc. into the nation's largest toy maker along with his wife, Ruth, who created the Barbie doll in 1959. The dollhouse evolved from 16th-century "baby houses," wooden cabinets in which wealthy European women displayed their collections of miniature furnishings. German toy makers produced variations for youngsters to furnish with tiny chairs, tables, beds, tapestries and floor coverings and, by the 19th century, mass-production methods enabled dollhouses to grow in popularity. "The dollhouse has gone on to hold a special place in the hearts of children everywhere," said Patricia Hogan, the museum's The Julian News 3 • Rabobank customers now have free use of ATMs at more than 500 stores throughout California. • Rabobank is ranked "Highest Customer Satisfaction with Retail Banking in California" by J.D.

Pam & Tom Green Bob & Marie Allen were the original owners of this lovely home. Pam is their daughter. Bob was an amazing artist, lots of his art work you will see displayed around the home. He also was the originator of the "Howdy Doody" puppet for the TV show in the 1950s. When the Aliens moved to Pine Hills permanently Marie wanted the home to be bigger. She kept thinking of ways to increase the home in size and little by little, addition by addition, the home spread all over the upper part of the prbperty. Pam and Tom have done some redecorating since her father died. They live in Koto de Caza, California most of the year.
