Marvin Glass and Associates (MGA) was a toy design and engineering firm based out of Chicago, Illinois. While not a household name, Marvin Glass (1914–1974) and his employees created some of the most successful toys and games of the 20th century.

History

Marvin Glass and Associates was founded in 1941. MGA was contracted by Bally-Midway to design coin-operated video games during the 1980s. Some of the games produced by MGA during this era include Tapper, Domino Man and Timber.

Marvin Glass and Associates, now Big Monster Toys, partially remains to this day and is still based in Chicago.
