  • These individuals were selected for induction by members of The Toy Association.

They have been selected in recognition of their significant contributions to the industry and the impact they have had on the lives of children through a lifelong commitment to toys and play.

The Toy Association announced that it will induct the late Stan Lee, former editor-in-chief, publisher, and chairman of Marvel Comics, Brian Goldner, chairman & CEO of Hasbro, and the late Joe Mendelsohn, president of Kenner Products into the esteemed Toy Industry Hall of Fame.

They will join an impressive roster of 76 toy industry luminaries, including Ruth Handler, Jim Henson, George Lucas, and Joan Ganz Cooney, who have been inducted into the Hall since it was established in 1984.

The Toy Industry Hall of Fame lives alongside the National Toy Hall of Fame in a special exhibit at The Strong museum in Rochester, NY. The cutting-edge installation features inductees of both halls under one roof, showcasing the toys beloved by generations and the toy industry trailblazers who helped bring those toys to life.
