ROCHESTER, N. Y. (AP) — The great minds of the toy industry will be honored alongside the famous toys they created under a new partnership being announced at the Strong Museum in Rochester.

Museum officials say the National Toy Hall of Fame housed at the museum is being combined with the Toy Industry Hall of Fame, which honors individuals. Past inductees include Milton Bradley, Frederick August Otto Schwarz and George Lucas.

Officials say the groups have been talking for some time about combining their respective halls as a way to raise their visibility and exposure and to promote their educational missions.

The new expanded hall is expected to open at the Strong Museum in the fall of 2015 after undergoing $4 million in renovations.
