Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Toys in the National Toy Hall of Fame, by their nature, stand the test of time. They are fun playthings when they're introduced, and they must still be fun about a generation later. A holiday photograph shows a boy who's just torn the wrapping off a present, around 1975. Ho holds his new Slinky on high but his eyes dart across the room; does another present wait for him? Holiday joy and the exitement of opening presents show in his face and gesture.
