This informative post will be posted on Saturday along with my usual writing.  We can all appreciate some of the lesser known facts from around the world.

In 1945, Harold Mattson and Elliot Handler combined forces–and their names–to form Mattel Toys.  Fourteen years later, Handler’s wife Ruth also became an integral part of the operation when she created a fashion doll (and the doll’s boyfriend), which she named after their two kids, Barbie and Ken.

Leo Fender, designer of the highly cherished Fender Guitar, didn’t know how to play the guitar.

These facts have been discovered in I NEVER KNEW THAT by David Hoffman (2009).
