Inductees include Stan Lee, former editor-in-chief, publisher and chairman of Marvel Comics, Brian Goldner, chairman and CEO of Hasbro and the late Joe Mendelsohn, president of Kenner Products. Each inductee was selected by members of The Toy Association for their contributions to the industry and the impact they’ve had on children's lives through play.
“Stan Lee, Brian Goldner and Joe Mendelsohn represent the passion, creativity and business acumen that are hallmarks of Toy Industry Hall of Fame inductees,” says Steve Pasierb, president and chief executive officer, The Toy Association. “They have created beloved characters and exciting products that stand the test of time while each consistently demonstrated deep dedication to the world of entertainment and toys. Even more important is the joy and wonder they have brought to children around the world, forever shaping how kids play. The Toy of the Year Awards gala in February is certain to be both a celebration and emotional tribute.”
