How Was "Fisher-Price" Named?
Fisher-Price is named after two of the company's three founders, Herman Fisher and Irving Price (the third, Helen Schelle, is omitted). In 1930, the three founders went to the International Toy Fair in New York City, bringing 16 toys with them. At the time, Fisher-Price was essentially limited to the making of wooden toy dogs. That tradition continued on for nearly four decades.
During the 1960s, Fisher-Price began to produce their famous "Little People" line, with items such as schoolbuses, farms, etc. hitting the markets. The Little People toys gained much popularity and quickly replaced the wooden dogs on Fisher-Price's production line.
