In this week’s episode of the “Power Kid Podcast,” host Phil Albritton of Power Kid Design welcomes legendary toy designer Eddy Goldfarb and his daughter Lyn to the show.
Eddy Goldfarb is a prolific inventor that holds 300 patents. During the course of his career, nearly 800 of his products — including KerPlunk and Hydro Strike — have been brought to market.
