Jones, formerly MD of Dekkertoys and Golden Bear and one-time chairman of the BTHA, has set up Clive Jones Leisure. The new operation will handle sales for a number of established lines including, initially, Lanard Toys which is best known for its Corps range of military action figures plus a huge range of outdoor toys and water guns.
Longer term Jones intends to import products from the Far East and Europe, including some licensed lines and develop its own product.
"I am very excited about this new venture and have had a great response from retailers to my plans," Jones told ToyNews.
