Hasbro is known for its “My Little Pony” toys, and its partnership with “Star Wars” and Marvel. It also makes Monopoly, which saw a surge in sales over the pandemic as lockdowns led to increased family time. “Since joining the company more than two decades ago, Brian has been the heart and soul of Hasbro,” Stoddart said in a statement. “As a charismatic and passionate leader in both the play and entertainment industries, Brian’s work brought joy and laughter to children and families around the world.”
