The man credited with inventing the Frisbee, one of the world's most popular toys, has died at his home in Utah at the age of 90.

Walter Frederick Morrison suffered from cancer, and "old age caught up with him," his son, Walt, told The Associated Press.

According to Phil Kennedy, who co-wrote a book with Morrison in 2001, the idea for the toy came to Morrison after he and his future wife, Lu, tossed a metal cake pan on the beach in California.
