History

1994 

Egmont Le Compte starts an activity as agent for several toy manufacturers under the name "Egmont Toys”.

1996 

Egmont Toys moves from the garage where everything got started to a warehouse of 1200 m² and hires its first employee.

1997 

The next big step is taken with the participation in several international trade fairs: "the Toy Fair” in Nuremberg and "Maison et Objet” in Paris.

1997 

The start of the production of our own collection. Our first product is a series of washing gloves/hand puppets in the form of animals under the name "Swash”. With the first product we have an instant success (more than 1 million pcs sold till now).

Since 1997

We have always continued to develop new items, in collaboration with an external designer and since 2003 with our in-house designer Gaëtane Lannoy. Whilst designing, Gaëtane prefers to use pen, paint and paper, rather than the widely spread computer drawings.

Since 1999

Egmont Toys not only sells in Belgium (through our sales representative Claudine Waterreus), but over the whole world through a steadily growing network of distributors (in Germany, Sweden, Slovenia, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Japan, Greece, Switzerland and since 2012 also in Australia, Russia, Poland and Finland).

2002 

The creation of our "doudou express” service, a service for desperate parents and sad babies for lost doudous. This is a service on the internet, mainly for doudous of older collections and therefore difficult to find (we always keep some pieces in stock of items that are no longer in production).

2004 

The development of a website with a better presentation and the possibility for our customers to order online.

2004 

The creation of the Egmont Toys doudou. The innovating aspect of this doudou is the small animal that peeps through the blanket and that can be played with separately or together with the blanket. The Egmont Toys doudou is part of the collection of the shops of MOMA in New York and Tokio.

2005

2006 

Egmont Toys continues to expand rapidly and moves to a bigger warehouse of 3000 m² in Wauthier-Braine.
