I never thought of a blanket as a toy before.  Hot Wheels, sure.  I guess if you think about it a blanket can be a cape, a tent or even a shield of some sort.  The possibilities are endless!  That is why the blanket, Hot Wheels and the dollhouse are being inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame.

According to the Toy Hall of Fame website, the dollhouse has been around since the 1500's, Hot Wheels since the 60's.  I am guessing the blanket dates back to B.C. - you know, "Before Clothes".
