Founded in 1978, Giochi Preziosi is the biggest player in the Italian toy market and, by its own definition, it is also the fourth largest toy operator in the world.

Giochi markets and distributes toys under its own brands. In Italy the group has a direct presence in the retail sector, with its 434 stores under the names of Amico Gio, Giochetta and Giochi Preziosi, which makes it the largest toy retailer in Italy.
