Closing shops in Mallow, Blackpool, Midleton and Fermoy, the family-owned business has gone into voluntary liquidation with the loss of 30 jobs.

In a statement, the company's managing director Gerald Murphy cited the state of the economy, lack of access to credit from banks and suppliers, and high running costs.

The company started as a family-run grocery business in Mallow in 1929, but became a full toy store in 1999, expanding two years later with shops opening in Blackpool, Fermoy and Midleton.
