Jay Foreman will serve as the company’s chief executive officer, while Brad Pedersen will take on the position of president. Furthermore, the company’s head office will be located in Boca Raton, Fla., with regional offices in Hong Kong, Los Angeles and Toronto.

of becoming a top ten global player within five years. We are excited about our current product portfolio; from our novelty collectables, great retro toys and handheld electronic games, to our growing construction segment and our new Uncle Milton STEM activity toys. These lines and the new products we will be showing at the Fall Preview Show in Dallas serve as a solid foundation and represent the beginning of the many more exciting things to come from Basic Fun!.”
