MEDINA – These Little People were part of a feature on Fisher-Price toys during a discussion and display by the Medina Historical Society last month at Lee-Whedon Memorial Library in Medina.

The Little People were finalists for the Toy Hall of Fame at the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester. But the locally made toys didn’t make the final cut. The new inductees include Bubbles, little green army men and Rubik’s Cube.

Little People were among 12 finalists for the Hall of Fame. Fisher-Price operated in Medina from 1970 to the late 1990s. I think the Little People are the first Fisher-Price toys to be in the running for the Toy Hall of Fame.
