We are a London based importer and wholesale distributer of quality toys and play furniture to the UK market.
With parents becoming more design aware, cash conscious and often space-starved. Gander aim to meet the needs of today’s parents by sourcing products from around the world bringing to the UK a new generation of stylish, affordable, multi-use products for children aged one to seven.
As parents we believe that high quality children’s products shouldn’t break the bank but at Gander we want them to break the mould.
Maxine Lewis founded Gander in 2010 following a successful career in financial services.
As a busy working parent of young children Maxine was looking for good quality, reasonably priced children’s products, with high standards of design. Disillusioned with seeing the same products from the same shops she wanted to ensure that the design revolution happening in children’s products around the world could also be enjoyed by parents in the UK.
Supported by a network of professionals in fields including Retail Marketing, PR, and logistics and staffed by parents, Gander’s knowledge and experience spans not only the business world but that of being parents with a queue of willing little testers.
In the UK Gander is authorised to distribute the fantastic products produced by P'kolino (pee-ko-lee-no). P’kolino was founded to improve play at home by two dads with a passion for creating great products. With the help of friends, family and a global network of designers, P’kolino has created play products that are beloved worldwide for their playful style and smart functionality.
Their innovative line of toys, play furnishings, art supplies, décor and more offer children of all ages playfully smart solutions to improve play at home. P'kolino was founded in 2004 and is located in Florida, USA.
Watch this space there are many more brands the UK deserves to know about and Gander have big plans!
