Curators said the stick was a special addition in the spirit of a 2005 inductee, the cardboard box. They praised its all-purpose, no-cost, recreational qualities, noting its ability to serve either as raw material or an appendage transformed in myriad ways by a child's creativity.
The stick 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 because it's not just for humans. You can find otters, chimps and dogs — especially dogs — playing with it.
Guess what Little Man is getting for Christmas!!! A perfect gift for this year's dwindling budget.
