Website Closers® presents a Kids Toy & Entertainment Brand that offers children and their parents all things necessary to keep kids occupied and having fun during family vacations, weddings, events and any other time where boredom can potentially set in.
The business operates in both the eCommerce and Wholesale Channels, with a tremendous ability to scale into additional marketplaces and retail partners.
The company has become well known for its Award-Winning Entertainment Packs, but has extended beyond packs into individual toys, travel items, kids games, and so much more.
The brand specializes in customized entertainment packs, including various unique items such as stickers, coloring books, crafts, crayons, toys, educational games, puzzles, and snacks. An additional, exclusive brand explicitly designed for airplane travel enjoys robust D2C and business-to-business sales.
The inventory for the items inside the Entertainment Packs is sourced from the United Kingdom via 8 primary suppliers. Due to the swift delivery times, the company never has to keep too much stock on hand and has managed to avoid supply chain issues that have plagued many others in eCommerce.
Around $120,000 worth of inventory is maintained throughout the year.
All suppliers are CE-registered large corporations that supply the leading toy stores. The owner has negotiated excellent payment terms resulting in healthy cash flow. The products are packed into a simple recipe for each SKU to avoid discrepancies and duplicates. The UK-based 3PL has learned to do this perfectly since 2018 and now ships around 50 orders daily. Notably, the same process regarding fulfillment and product suppliers can be replicated in the US to boost revenue exponentially.
Current Ownership believes the company could quickly increase revenue by 500% by advertising in the country and stocking products with a logistics company there, as there is already a US customer base purchasing from the store so domestic shipping would be welcome. The UK 3PL has a sister company in the US, which would simplify the expansion.
Two of the products are manufactured in China, and the owner has worked with them since the business opened. The vendor is highly cost-effective and reliable and ships some products directly to clients. . One of the stores top selling products is sourced from China and the business is its exclusive distributor in the UK, Europe, the US, and Canada, this is an extremely popular product which has a $130 AOV with currently no targeted ads in the US or EU

The business is well-systemized, and the owner works only six to eight hours weekly. His primary tasks include ordering stock, liaising with the 3PL, and overseeing the virtual assistant and posting on social media. His entire role could be outsourced to a VA.

Any parent will understand the problem this service solves, and any children’s brand will welcome the database and audience that has been created.
