A little history on the Pressman Toy Corporation: Jack and Lynn Pressman founded the company in 1942. Jack Pressman started his first business in 1925. His first hit was Chinese Checkers and then games like Ring Toss and Table Tennis. He manufactured lines of Dick Tracy and Little Orphan Annie products; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was the first movie licensing property. In 1942, Jack married Lynn. She became very involved in the company and developed the first doctor bag and nurse bag. In 1955, they acquired more licenses related to Disney products. After Jack died in 1959, Lynn took over the business and was one of only three women in upper management in the toy industry. She became a pioneer in recognizing the value of using an artist from the fashion world to design game boxes and introduced a Shari Lewis product. Jim Pressman was appointed President in 1977. They now have successful games such as Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, Othello, Master Mind for Kids, and others. The newest product is Board Games for Dummies
