twisterReyn Guyr (1935-present) is the American toy inventor responsible for international hit games such as Twister and NERF ball.

As a child, Guyr had undiagnosed dyslexia and struggled for years to master basic reading and spelling. He found out about his dyslexia only when his teenage daughter was diagnosed. Guyr was, however, a talented visual artist from an early age, and became a game inventor when he dreamed up Twister one day in a team meeting at his advertising company. Several inventions later, he was officially inducted into the game inventors’ hall of fame. Today he runs a music publishing company called Wrensong.
