Learn What Inspired The Invention Of Some Favorite Toys!

May 1, 2013 | Ever wonder how toy inventors get their ideas? Tune into the Toy Industry Association’s (TIA) “Inventor Inspiration” online story series to get a behind-the-scenes look into what inspired several of today’s new and classic toys and games.

As spring gets underway and new growth surrounds us, throughout the month of May TIA will be posting daily stories via Facebook and Twitter, highlighting some of the fresh new ideas that are hitting store aisles — as well as a few classics that have been flying off shelves for generations. Check in each day to read about how, often by chance, an inventor’s thoughts, observations, and own children sparked an idea that led to the creation of a toy cherished by millions of kids around the world.  

Check back for more “Inventor Inspiration” stories this August, when TIA celebrates National Inventors Month!
