Toys of 1956

 

They named it Play-Doh 1956.

 

Yahtzee 1956 A wealthy Canadian couple created The Yacht Game for their friends to enjoy during cruises on their private yacht. The couple's friends loved the game so much that they each wanted their own copy. This prompted the couple to approach a toy maker, Edwin Lowe, to commission copies to give as gifts. Lowe loved the game upon seeing it and bought the rights. In 1956, the couple, who have chosen to remain unknown, received the first one thousand game sets in exchange for the rights to their creation. That year, Lowe changed the name from The Yacht Game to Yahtzee.
