Cardboard Box


Invented in the 1600s by the Chinese, cardboard initially made its debut to the English in the 1800s as a liner for men's hats. As cardboard became stronger and more durable, its uses began to range from storage, to packaging, to...toy?

As any parent of a small child knows, kids usually get more use out of a cardboard box than the toy that came in it. So, it's only fitting that this cheap and easy-to-find plaything would find its place in the Toy Hall of Fame.
