Inducted October 12, 2006 

Ben Yorke, known in the toy industry as Gentle Ben, exemplifies what it means to be a true “toy man”. Throughout his 45-year career, he’s been a help and an inspiration to his friends and colleagues.
Ben’s career began with another Hall of Fame inductee Moe Smith at Lido Toy. His journey continued with companies, such as Louis Marx, Jaymar Puzzles, and Playtoy Industries. More recently, he’s served with Mega Brands and Kroeger Inc.
At 80, Ben is still working in the industry he loves—in turn respected and loved by the many suppliers and retailers who honour him today.
