By Dean Dyer, WRWH
The Cabbage Patch Kids need your help to get into the National Toy Hall of Fame.
The dolls, created by Xavier Roberts of White County in the 1970s, are among 12 finalists for the 2021 hall of fame induction. Only three will be selected. 

Margaret McLean, Director of Corporate Communications for BabyLand General® Hospital in Cleveland, said the Player's Choice voting is currently underway, and she's hoping fans of Cabbage Patch Kids will cast their votes. 

According to McLean, the three toys that receive the most public votes will be submitted on one ballot and will join the other top-three submissions from members of the National Selection Advisory Committee. The final inductees will be revealed on Thursday, Nov. 4.

You can help the Cabbage Patch Kids by voting online at players-choice-ballot.

The people’s choice voting will run through Sept. 22, and individuals can cast one ballot each day. 

The other nominees for the 2021 Hall of Fame include: American Girl Dolls, Battleship, billiards, the Fisher Price Corn Popper, Mahjong, Masters of the Universe toys, the pinata, Risk, sand, The Settlers of Catan and the toy fire engine.

Among the dozens of toys already in the Strong's National Toy Hall of Fame are LEGO, Monopoly and the Rubik’s Cube.
