I started my QA life working for Toys R Us as a temp. I stayed for 3 years, gaining a qualification in Mechanical Engineering along the way. I then moved away from children’s products, working at Woolworths and then the Arcadia Group. 16 years later, I have found my way back into the toy world with Addo.


My favourite childhood toy was Minty the green rabbit; even after she burnt her bottom on the oven, I still loved her!


My favourite Addo toy is the Snuggle Buddies range, especially Henry the large teddy bear.
