Orchard Toys has enjoyed success across the pond, having designed range of successful games for PBS Kids.

PBS contacted Orchard Toys looking for someone to help them produce a range of games and jigsaws to be sold through Wholefoods stores, a large upmarket supermarket chain in America.

The game and jigsaw manufacturer worked collaboratively with the TV network’s development team to design and produce three games and two jigsaws in their own brand style, which have subsequently been successful in the US.

Since completing the range, one of the jigsaws produced for PBS Kids has won a prestigious NAPPA (National Parenting Publications) award.

“It’s been great to work closely with PBS throughout the product design and development process to ensure that the end results meet their expectations,” said Orchard Toys’ export manager, Mary Watson.

“It positively demonstrates the work we can do with other retailers and distributors.”

Orchard Toys has also designed and manufactured several own brand products for retailers and distributors both in the UK and internationally, including language specific lines for a number of non-English speaking countries.
