Congratulations to Nintendo for getting their Game Boy inducted into the Toy Hall of Fame. I remember the first time I saw one of these bad boys.

Thanks to the internets, we now have the complete word/item list in the highly acclaimed DS game, Scribblenauts. The list is 22,803 items long. Now I know this is probably like a cheat sheet for the game, but even with this list handy, the possibilities are still endless.
