Wholesale Toys and Games
Good quality wholesale
toys and games important can be important, not only
to the merchant and reseller, but also to the teachers,
parents and children who will enjoy them. A large number
of suppliers have entered the wholesale toys and games
business, making a wide range of products available to
retail stores and professionals as well as to the public.
Low prices are certainly a key consideration for the non-profit
organization, the church, school or professional who works
with children on a daily basis. This is why many suppliers
of wholesale toys and games offer not only low prices but
also eliminate the minimum order requirement, in many cases.
In past years, many wholesale toys and games suppliers worked
only with retail stores and resellers, requiring them to
have a sales tax number and order a minimum dollar amount
of product, such as $50 or $100. These suppliers sometimes
made special concessions to non-profit organizations and
those who needed to buy in smaller amounts.
The difference in the way some of these
merchants now offer wholesale toys and games was necessary
because of gradual changes in the industry itself. Far
from making regular, personal visits to the old "dime store" or
other shop, merchants in the wholesale toys and games industry
now rely heavily on Web sites and buyers who use computers
to order and pay. Now a wholesale toys and games supplier
might get a small order from a gift shop at the zoo, a medium
size order from a school and a large order from one of the
bigger retail sites. For those in the wholesale toys and
games business, it's all in a day's work.
Many of these suppliers have little or no inventory, choosing
instead to have items shipped from the factory as needed,
or shipped directly to the buyer. In this situation, the
need for warehouse space and inventory investment is completely
eliminated. Not only that, but print catalogs have almost
become a thing of the past. With the technology available
today, full-color photos and graphics are sufficient to entice
Sometimes demand for certain items can create a shortage.
While this may be the case in almost any business, with toys
and games the response by parents and children to marketing
of a certain item can create a panic of demand. Keep in mind,
when considering the wholesale toys and games business, that
availability of some items will be limited. Plan for this
and the customer will usually be satisfied.
