WiT honors the legacies of those we’ve lost by establishing In Memory Of — to acknowledge and celebrate the talented and committed individuals who worked in the toy, licensing, and entertainment industries and have passed away. No matter how big or small their contributions, each and everyone has moved our industry forward.
