(Not going to lie, it's pretty funny they chose BBE ponies to represent ponies!  >_<)

Pez isn't a toy.  It's a candy dispenser!  We need 100 more people to vote for ponies.  Can we put the announcement in the shout box so people will see it?

Agreed. I am pretty sure it has safety warnings about playing with it, or it should do. So that's just weird that it's included there.

Very cool to see MLP making a good showing though. I find that most countdowns or shows about toys belittle MLP and most girls' toys because obviously only boys toys are respectable *rolls eyes*.

And kudos to the BBE :) They need the attention too :D

My first thought upon seeing the picture was "Really?  BBEs?"  XD

But yeah, PEZ isn't a toy, it's a candy dispenser. Get it outta there!  Go ponies! 

I don't really count sand as a toy either . . . ?  I mean, I could understand if it were "a bucket and spade".  But just sand?  Why not dirt, I'm sure people played with that too.

Wasn't  a "stick" on the list last year?  I feel like including "found" items is just ridiculous.  I get that kids can play with whatever.  But I feel like a "Hall of Fame" list should only include items actually made by people and intended as a toy.

(I did my part and voted for ponies, too)

I think Wiffle Ball is an American thing, I've heard about it but have never met anyone who played it... So it coming second pft.
I understand Pez being included, and taking the lead, they are very iconic even if not strictly a toy.

Voted ponies, one of these years we'll win!

I call bull on the pez dispenser being a toy! It should be disqualified! Ponies should obviously win because ponies are awesome. Enough said. And any of our American friends care to explain what wiffle ball is? It never really took here.
This. Sentence. Is. False! Dontthinkaboutitdontthinkaboutit.

A wiffle ball is a plastic ball with holes in it.  They're very lightweight, so kids can play baseball type games with it without risk of hurting themselves or smashing a window. :)

Keep spreading the word, guys, MLPs are gaining ground on PEZ!

It says you can vote once a day! So keep coming back and vote for pony every day. Maybe the committee will take notice.  ;P
