AB Gee from Ripley in Derbyshire describe themselves as the “UK’s No.1 Toy and Model Distributor”. They offer a massive range of branded goods that any size toy retailer can buy in smaller than normal quantities than if buying direct from a manufacturer. This focus has helped the company become a major distributor to the independent toy trade as well as to multiple retailers who may not want to commit to huge quantities.
The impressive selection of branded and licensed toys is far too large to list here, but suffice to say that Airfix, Barbie, Casdon, Disney Princess, Thomas & Friends, Fisher Price, Little Tikes, Star Wars and Top Trumps gives a flavour of what’s on offer. Naturally many toy categories are included in the selections with arts & crafts, die cast models, outdoor toys, puzzles, radio control and games being some of the most popular.
The company is a major distributor of toys from the ‘big six’ companies of Hasbro, Character Options, Mattel, Hornby, Tomy and Flair. AB Gee’s showroom is open to trade buyers by appointment, and features a well laid out display in a fun and colourful atmosphere. Printed catalogues are also available to buyers as well as an extremely comprehensive website that shows images and descriptions of over 10,000 products!
The world's most famous online retailer sells an unparalleled selection of toys.
