Andy has over 25 years’ experience in the toy industry, and has now decided to set up his own business.

Having worked for major brands including Crayola, Mega Bloks, and Mattel, Andy has now decided to set up by himself as an independent international toy sales and marketing specialist.

Addo Play released the following statement: “’Having been instrumental in the early stages of the set-up and initial launch of the Addo Play business, Andy Critchlow – international business development director – has decided to move on and to focus on his core competencies and strengths, and will leave the company at the end of January 2018. David Martin and Mary Price – joint managing directors of Addo Play – wish Andy all the best for the future, and Andy in turn wishes the whole Addo team every success in the years to come.”

Andy commented: “I’ve decided the time has come to work for myself with a select portfolio of companies, helping them develop their business in the sometimes difficult international toy arena, and passing on some of the knowledge I have gained over a very successful career in international sales & marketing management to date. I’m currently in discussion with several companies, but am open to further discussions and opportunities, and can be contacted by phone on 0039 345 1131470 or at”
