Animal Adventure was launched in 1998, with the mission of developing and manufacturing unique and high quality plush toys for better retailers throughout the United States. At first our focus was working with regional department stores, and we were soon making seasonal and baby toys for high-profile accounts like Marshall Field’s, Mervyn’s, Saks, Hudson’s Bay, Dillard’s, and others. By 2001 we expanded into several grocery and mid-tier channel customers, such as Kroger, Shopko, Meijer, Supervalu, A-Hold, and many others. Later we established ourselves with countless national specialty accounts, such as Cost Plus World Market, Bed Bath & Beyond, Pier One, and more. Since 2005, in the US and Canada we have added many mass market customers, including Toys R Us, Petsmart, Target, Loblaw, Kmart, and Costco. More recently have successfully brought our design model to major foreign retail brands such as Big W, ASDA, Morrison, and Sainsbury.
While our company may look very different today than it did in 1998, it remains true to its original mission of offering great designs, excellent customer service, and outstanding value. We are proud and grateful that so many well-regarded retailers entrust us with the responsibility of designing and producing their plush toy programs.
