An ambitious “economic capitalist” firm called Vision Investment Ventures is putting together plans to launch a revolutionary concept, which would see it open the world's biggest toy store and bring back large-scale toy manufacturing to the UK.

While trying to maintain a low profile until the plans are more advanced, Vision Investment Ventures revealed to ToyNews that it is currently putting together a strategy for a multi-storey complex in South London called Grandpa Grey Goose.

It says it will introduce a radically changing shopping concept never seen before in the industry, combining safety and creative enjoyment in its open space floor plan while allowing children and parents free reign to wander unaccompanied throughout the store.

As well as the flagship London store it would also be looking to open franchise 'boutique' stores throughout the UK and Europe. In fact, it is likely these will appear before the destination London store which it is hoping to have up and running in a maximum of two year's time.

The investment company is also talking to manufacturers about moving production to the UK and believes its unique method of funding and investment will enable it to pay UK wages but keep manufacturing costs the same as they are in the Far East, while improving safety standards.
