The Rochester museum said Thursday a national selection committee picked the inductees from a shortlist that included classic toys such as the Magic 8 Ball, Simon, Twister, Lite-Brite, the Fisher-Price corn popper and the tea set, NBC News reported Thursday.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reported the "Star Wars" action figures, released in 1978, led to an increase in toys made to tie in with popular movies and TV shows.

Dominoes, which were also finalists in 2010, were invented in China and later made their way to Europe.
