ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) -- The rubber duck has squeaked out a win for a place in the National Toy Hall of Fame.
The bath toy joins the ancient game of chess in the class of 2013 inducted Thursday.
The pair beat out 10 other finalists for a spot in the 15-year-old hall.
Those that didn't make the cut include bubbles, the board game Clue, Fisher-Price Little People, little green Army men, the Magic 8 Ball, My Little Pony, Nerf toys, the Pac-Man video game, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the scooter.
The National Toy Hall of Fame is located inside The Strong Museum in Rochester.
A museum committee of curators, educators and historians choose the finalists and inductees based on their longevity, innovation, and other attributes.
Chess is one of the world's oldest games, tracing its history to an ancient Indian war game.
Hall officials say no one knows exactly who hatched the rubber duck, though squeak toys have been around since the 1800s.
They will join last year's winners: dominoes and "Star Wars" action figures.
