The National Toy Hall of Fame (who knew?) contains such classic toys as Lego, an Atari 2600 game console, Mr. Potato Head, and a kite. And as of yesterday, it also contains…

a stick.

That’s right, possibly the most timeless toy of all time. According to the museum’s curator, Christopher Bensch:

It’s very open-ended, all-natural, the perfect price– there aren’t any rules or instructions for its use. 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.

It’s great to see some fun in the world.
