Adolph Eddie Goldfarb (born 1921 in Chicago, Illinois) is a game designer, inventor, and former World War II Navy veteran. After the war, he may have been the only independent toy designer. He was the first American to receive the I.D.I.O.T. (International Designers & Inventors of Toys) award from the United Kingdom and European inventor community. Some his products have included Yakkity Yak Teeth, Battling Tops, and Kerplunk.
He was inducted into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame in 2003.
Note: This appears to be a different person than comic artist Ed Goldfarb who worked for Marvel/Atlas during the 1950s.
