Epoch Making Toys supports indie retail with Muddleit partnership for Sylvanian Families and Aquabeads

Lynne Coward, managing director of Muddleit, said: “We are absolutely delighted to be appointed exclusive wholesaler of such popular and well-known brands. We’re looking forward to working together with EPOCH to serve the independent toy and gift sector, offering the flexibility of single unit purchases and responsive delivery service.”
