The Stick was entered into the Toy Hall of Fame this month.

"It's very open-ended, all-natural, the perfect price -- there aren't any rules or instructions for its use," said Christopher Bensch, the museum's curator of collections. "It can be a Wild West horse, a medieval knight's sword, a boat on a stream or a slingshot with a rubber band. ... No snowman is complete without a couple of stick arms, and every campfire needs a stick for toasting marshmallows.

"This toy is so fantastic that it's not just for humans anymore. You can find otters, chimps and dogs -- especially dogs -- playing with it."

Do you think the "Stick" deserves a place in the Toy Hall of Fame?

I did prefer the other hall of famer, the cardboard box, better. You were the most popular kid when your house got a new appliance in our neighborhood.
