BigJigs Toys expands its educational offering with Agenta Education acquisition

BigJigs Toys has expanded its educational offering with the acquisition of Agenta Education after the firm’s family owners decided to retire from the educational supply business.

The Agenta Education range stems from the Vargerson family who shared similar core values to BigJigs to deliver ‘quality, safe and affordable products,’ which are responsibly sourced and complement childhood development.

“After 30 years of trading as Agenta, the Vagerson family has decided to retire from the educational supply business,” said Steve Vagerson. “With the recent loss of founder LEs, it seems a right and wise decision to bow out. We are delighted to pass on our business to the team at BigJigs Toys.”

Sam Ireland, director at BigJigs Toys, added: “BigJigs Toys is delighted to have made a further business acquisition in the educational area.

“We have a considerable amount of work to do to integrate the Agenta Education stock lines into the BigJigs Toys business, but are working as quickly as we can to do this so that we are able to fulfil orders to our educational customers as soon as possible.”
