Jeremy Robinson has joined Eolo Toys to help expand its business in the UK and Ireland, taking on the new role of UK Sales and Business Development.

Alongside supporting current customers, Jeremy will work towards breaking into new categories, says Alex Prieto, Director of Fun at Eolo Toys.

“Eolo has been known mainly for our Kites and outdoor toys, but we are growing into other toy categories thanks to our in-house design and development team,” Alex says. 

“Jez joins in a great moment for Eolo to bring experience and fun in the UK & Ireland toy space.”

Among these is feature plush, where the company has seen early success.

“The new developments into the Feature Plush market in particular are already proving a great success,” says Jeremy. “I look forward to meeting with the UK customers, either in Hong Kong in January or locally, over the coming weeks and months to present the ranges and develop our trading relationships even further.

Formerly UK Country Manager at Schleich and UK Sales Manager at Tomy, Jeremy brings years of experience to the role.

"This is a hugely exciting time to be joining the Eolo team,” he adds. “They are already well established in the UK market and their growing product offer, across both existing and new categories, gives all current and prospective customers a huge amount of opportunity to offer a fantastic range of products from a single and proven supplier.”
