Reydon Sports is exploring a hybrid of sport and toy lines through an innovative set of products from Franklin Sports.
Reydon’s B2B model allows it to supply and service the world of retail via its UK distribution centre, and the company is now making a huge splash in Europe for the Franklin Sports brand. The 16+ SKU launch for Reydon has unveiled a collection of sporting product lines which fit perfectly into any toy, sport, leisure or multiple retailer.
Products include the new versatile Spyder Pong, combining table tennis, volleyball and 4-square into a single action-packed game; the perfect sport-based activity for any social event, picnic or party. The set includes a large Spyder Pong table frame, a net, two balls, two paddles and a mini pump with needle. Players can also use their imagination and create their own new and exciting variations on the game.
Alongside the innovation of Spyder Pong & Spyderball is the Jumbo 4-in-a-Row game; the traditional game on a much larger scale with an extra-large 24″ wooden game board for super-sized fun.
Other products within the range consist of various family-friendly sports themed sets. With a long-term business strategy to develop its sports offering with a toy-like spin, Reydon Sports says that working alongside Franklin Sports opens up a superb offering of products to the retail sector.
The Fun 5 Combo set includes five fun activities: Badminton, Volleyball, Flip Toss, Ring Toss and Flying Disc. The set comes complete with everything needed to play the various games from the poles, the net, badminton rackets, birdies, volleyball, flip toss scoops and ball, ring toss, flying disc and a ball pump and needle. An alternative is the Croquet Set, a classic outdoor game for all ages, containing everything needed to play: four coloured wooden mallets, coloured croquet balls, two coloured wooden stakes and nine all-weather wickets.
Suitable for all ages from kids right through to adults, other options from Franklin Sports include the Inflatable Dart Ball, which tests throwing accuracy and lets players challenge friends both inside and outdoors, and the Field Day Tug Of War, which is 20 ft long and perfect for birthday parties, backyard barbeques, beach trips or as a gift.
Franklin also has a range of American Sports products, the MLB Foam Baseball Bat & Ball being a perfect product example. Ideal for any beginner player, it’s an effective way to teach hand and eye coordination.
Reydon Sports has recently become a Toymaster supplier and is keen to support the indie sector.
