Atari 2600 inducted into Toy Hall of Fame
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - To celebrate the toys inducted Thursday in the National Toy Hall of Fame, hug a red-haired doll, grab a single-button joystick — or go fly a kite.
Raggedy Andy, the Atari 2600 video game system and the kite were chosen for entry into the Strong National Museum of Play's all-star lineup, joining the bicycle, Lionel model trains, Mr. Potato Head and 33 other classic playthings.
"They are outstanding toys that have engaged multiple generations over time, inspiring them to create, learn, discover," said the Rochester museum's president, G. Rollie Adams.

The Legacy of the Atari 2600 VCS
Ebay: Still selling!
Stella: Open Source emulator
Comments: We had one ... but I think it was in the '80s. The Wikipedia and the "Legacy" article are very good. Google Atari for much more. I don't run the Atari 2600 on my Mac.
