Ken Forsse, the man who created Teddy Ruxpin in the ’80s, passed away March 20. He was 77.
“He had one of the most fertile creative minds I ever knew,” she said. “He thought about Teddy all the time and was always writing stories.”
Stories were Ruxpin’s specialty. The talking toy bear had a cassette player in his back and his eyes moved as he “read” aloud. Introduced at Christmas in 1985, Ruxpin quickly sold out and was a best-selling toy the following year.
