Horizon Hobby is entering the toy market after 30 years of success in the hobby sector.
Horizon Hobby manufactures and owns all of its brands and pioneers its own ground-breaking technology. Another key initiative which the company believes will appeal to toy retailers is its dedicated customer service team – if a consumer has a problem with a part, they can contact Horizon directly rather than going through the retailer.
Managing director Mark Divito told Toy World: “We only have a 1-2% replace rate, but on the rare occasions where there is a problem, we have a 48 hour turnaround. We also support our dealers with technology assistance and backup: all they need to do is stock the product, everything else is taken care of.”
Horizon Hobby carries over 24,000 lines of RC product, covering everything from micro quads to petrol cars and drones, and there are many licensors, including Audi, which work with the company on exclusive ranges. Many of the products are geared towards toy retailers, including a range of light-up minis, which offer affordable RC action for beginners.
The company will be unveiling its new range for 2016 at the Nuremberg Toy Fair, where it triumphed in the Best Teenage and Family category of the 2015 Toy Awards. Horizon also has a showroom in Hong Kong, where the full line-up will be on display.
