We received the following press release regarding the Indianapolis Children's Museum visitors and fans vote to choose their favorite from the '100 toys (& their stories) that defined our childhood'. Our favorite toy line Transformers took the silver coming in second.

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) September 11, 2012

After eight weeks of voting, more than 24,000 votes, and 600 stories shared, the final results are in and The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis online visitors and fans have determined their favorite toy from the past century. The top toy is G.I. Joe®!

On July 16, the public was asked to weigh in on the ‘100 Toys (& their Stories) that Define Our Childhood’. The goal was to determine favorites from a list of 100 toys iconic of childhood as chosen by curators of The Children’s Museum’s collection. After the initial five weeks of public voting, the list of 100 Toys was narrowed down to the top 20 from which the public was again asked to rank favorites. The results of this last vote determined the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners.

The final order for the top 20 toys is:

Gold: G.I. Joe®
Silver: Transformers®
Bronze: LEGO® Toys
4. Barbie®
5. View-Master®
6. Bicycle
7. Cabbage Patch Kids®
8. Crayons
9. Play-Doh®
10. MONOPOLY®
11. Raggedy Ann®
12. SpirographTM
13. Etch A Sketch®
14. Little Golden Books®
15. Hot Wheels®
16. Lincoln Logs®
17. Candy Land®
18. Roller Skates
19. Silly® Putty
20. Mr. Potato Head®

“The feedback and support from the public for this initiative has been extraordinary,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president & CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “The stories people have shared about intergenerational learning, family traditions and memories has been heartwarming and life changing in some cases. Toys are a powerful tool for exploration and imagination as we learn and grow. They foster many shared memories across generations and, as was represented in the voting and story sharing for 100 Toys, across cultures as we read stories submitted from Germany, Canada, Australia and Israel.”

The 100 Toys project included iconic toys from the past century (1910-present) that were representative of childhood. As one of the few children’s museums that is also an artifact collections museum, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis has more than 120,000 objects in its collection. Museum curators took great care in considering which 100 toys to choose that would represent a wide variety of experiences.

“Each of the toys the public chose for the top 20 has been produced for 25 years or more, which is not surprising considering their cross-generational appeal,” said Patchen. “Objects such as crayons and bicycles have been around for decades - evoking strong emotions and fond memories with children, parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. These toys give us common ground and are good conversation starters involving the entire family.”

Several generations of enjoyment were evident in the stories submitted to the museum website including a gentleman who shared multiple incidents in his own childhood growing up in Indianapolis during the 1950s. Like many of his generation, he played with trains, toy soldiers, and a Yo-Yo. Memories were also shared on toys popular in the last few years such as Beanie Babies® and Tickle Me Elmo, although many of the toys included are timeless such as toy tools, dress-up clothes, toy trucks and baby dolls, which alone received 31 story submissions!

Beginning on Sept. 11, the final 20 toys will be on display at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis for the public to view through the end of the year. Although voting has ended, the public is still encouraged to share their own memories of each of the 100 toys on The Children’s Museum website at http://www.childrensmuseum.org/100toys.

It's a device that opens the perceptions of reality and enables the operator to view/look upon other dimensions and worlds far beyond his/her mortal reach. Groundbreaking technology for it's time. :P

In honour of the arrival of animated series Transformers: Robots in Disguise, the Museum is hosting a collection showcasing different characters and their evolution from 1984 to the present day. It also seems to coincide with the currently expected air date of the series in the US - could this give us a more precise estimate? Check out their information below!

TRANSFORMERS: Robots in Disguise™

March 7–July 26, 2015
As Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS franchise celebrates its 30th Anniversary, get ready for a museum exhibit that shows the fun and innovation that has gone into the creation of the iconic robots. This exhibit will showcase the heroic Autobots and villainous Decepticons, including favorites like Bumblebee, Optimus Prime and Grimlock. Since their introduction in 1984, TRANSFORMERS characters have converted from robots to vehicles, jets, dinosaurs, and animals. The excitement and fast-paced action of a brand new animated series, Robots in Disguise from Hasbro Studios will debut in 2015 and the exhibit will feature new characters that will be sure to inspire families to create even more new stories. What are the secrets to creating something that can move and twist and contort itself into an entirely different being?

We reported a while back on the exhibition held by the Children's Museum of Indianapolis with everyone's favourite transforming robots, opening on 7th March. The museum has actually been in touch with us, and via Hasbro approval, shared images and designs for the event, which we've mirrored below to motivate people to visit what looks to be a really fascinating look at the Transformers franchise in a museum setting!

The exhibit design and social media teams at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis, the largest children’s museum in the world, are excited to share these preliminary design sketches for the upcoming exhibit Transformers: Robots in Disguise™. The exhibit opens at The Children’s Museum on March 7, in partnership with Hasbro.

These sketches are used to convey the overall experience of the exhibit in the early stages of development. They help illustrate the relationship between the displayed objects and the hands-on learning activities. You can learn more at http://www.childrensmuseum.org/future-exhibits, or follow the museum on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see the latest behind the scenes moments.

A we've been mentioning through today, site owner Seibertron was able to make the trip the Children's Museum on Indianapolis, in order to visit the new, Hasbro licensed, Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit we reported on a while ago!

If you head below and click on the images provided, you can take a look at a fairly extensive gallery covering the various parts of the history of the Transformers showcased, from interactive features, the prototypes and models on show (from unused toys to BotShots and more), the Soundwave through the ages collection, the vehicles of Movie Optimus Prime and Bumblebee on display, a Beast Wars diorama, a "design a Transformer" area, cartoons running in a room where kids can play with simplified 3 Step Transformers, an area where you can "become a Transformer" by motion-capture controlling a screen Bumblebee, and much much more than meets the eye!

Curious about the Transformers: Robots in Disguise exhibit at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, but cannot make it yourself, and the gallery we posted earlier is just not enough? Check out the embedded video below, then, and bask in almost 40 minutes of walkthrough to the whole thing as site owner Seibertron shows us around the place, and gives his thoughts live as he explores the museum with his family!

We have received a press release regarding the wonderful Children's Museum of Indianapolis exhibit on Transformers: Robots in Disguise, spanning the entirety of the franchise so far, and including some great figures, initiatives and interactive areas for children and children at heart. You can take a look at what Seibertron made of the whole shebang right here and via video here, and head below for an official look at the project!

Inspiring the imagination of kids and adults for generations The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis celebrates 30 years of these heroic robots in TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, opening March 7, 2015.

“Are you an AUTOBOT or a DECEPTICON?” will be asked of visitors entering this unique intergenerational exhibit through giant TRANSFORMERS masks. Inside, children and families will recognize all their favorite characters — from the evil DECEPTICON leader MEGATRON and his archrival, the wise OPTIMUS PRIME and the AUTOBOT army, to BUMBLEBEE and STARSCREAM. The exhibit will span the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand, from Generation 1, which debuted in 1984, to the characters from Hasbro’s newest animated series TRANSFORMERS ROBOTS IN DISGUISE – giving every member of the family a chance to share favorite memories.

"TRANSFORMERS prove that ordinary things can become extraordinary with an active imagination and great engineering,” said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO, The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis. “Just when you thought you were looking at a cool Camaro, you realize that underneath the shell is a giant AUTOBOT with a taste for adventure named BUMBLEBEE. We want families to explore how there really is more to the world than meets the eye and as they learn that together, they will share the joy of puzzle solving and discovery.”

It’s a jet, a car, a dinosaur! It’s a TRANSFORMERS Character!
Since the 1980s, the TRANSFORMERS brand has fascinated children and parents alike with heroic AUTOBOTS and villainous DECEPTICONS. Visitors will be immersed deep inside the universe of the TRANSFORMERS brand viewing rare and collectable toys, comics, memorabilia, film props and more!

Prepare to be transported to the future as the exhibit also features the all new animated series, TRANSFORMERS: ROBOTS IN DISGUISE, set to debut on the Cartoon Network at 6pm EST on March 14th. Visitors will discover all new characters and a fun action-packed storyline in which BUMBLEBEE must return to Earth and lead a rag tag team of AUTOBOTS who must capture a group of DECEPTICONS on the loose.

“We’re very excited to bring the TRANSFORMERS brand to life by showcasing the creativity and innovation behind a brand that’s been in families’ homes for more than three decades,” says Tom Warner, Senior Vice President Transformers Franchise Lead, Hasbro, Inc. “Bringing together fans of all generations, this exhibit celebrates how the franchise has evolved in both engineering and design, and in entertainment over the past 30 years.

We received the following press release regarding a "behind the scenes" feature of the Indianapolis Children's Museum.

The Optimus Prime truck from TRANSFORMERS: Age of Extinction is at the museum through April 5, and since visitors can’t go inside the cab, we decided to show it off in this video: https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10153245274993701&comment_id=10153245332528701

We also have a blog post with some additional interesting facts from Western Star/Daimler: https://www.childrensmuseum.org/blog/inside-optimus-prime-big-rig

In other news, we also recently posted a blog post by our Creative Director, who details the process behind making the TRANSFORMERS exhibit commercial: https://www.childrensmuseum.org/blog/transformers-commercial

We’ll have more blogs rolling out in the coming weeks, potentially from Karl and Pete, and likely from Hasbro designers. So continue to keep an eye on our social channels for new TRANSFORMERS content.

Still super snazzy paint job. That's cool.

Like it or not, that IS Optimus Prime for this generation. From what I've read around this site, a lot of kids are barely aware that there is a TV show NOW, much less a history of TV shows that Transformers pulls from. The live action films are the definitive Transformers to them.
