teddy ruxpin ken forsse toy creator dies at the age of 77

Aww!

This is so sad.

Ken Forsse the creator of the talking bear toy Teddy Ruxpin has passed away at the age of 77.

The inventor of the iconic '80s toy died on March 19th at his home after years of declining health. He eventually succumbed to congestive heart failure. A close friend of his said that Mr. Forsse died peacefully and without pain.

The Teddy Ruxpin bear first made its appearance in 1985, and delighted children around the world with its ability to move its eyes and mouth while telling bedtime stories to young ones.

Mr. Forsse even spun a television show off of the talking bear called The Adventures of Teddy Ruxpin which ran for 65 episodes.

Even though the animatronic bear made its debut a long time ago, Mr. Forsse never stopped being creative.

His wife Jan said:

"He thought about Teddy all the time and was always writing stories. He had an idea and documented it every day of his life. He had one of the most fertile creative minds I ever knew."

You will be definitely be missed, Ken!

Thank you for enriching the lives of so many kids! Although Mr. Forsse may have passed, his legacy will forever remain.
