Ned Strongin, co-inventor of Connect 4, passed away on April 9 of this year. He also invented Weebles, the little toys that wobble but don’t fall down.
Strongin was 92.
It’s important to understand that many of our favorite memories – board games, toys, and the like – sprung from the minds of great designers. Strongin, for example, was a well-known toy designer who worked his entire life to make things just a bit more fun.
