Kenner Toys was founded in Cincinnati by the Steiner brothers in 1947. The company went on to be a powerhouse in the toy industry, with such hits as The Easy Bake Oven, Spirograph, Stretch Armstrong, M.A.S.K, and, of course, the Star Wars collection. The Main Branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is currently celebrating Kenner and other local toy companies with several exhibits and an upcoming symposium.
