Toy brands Fuzzy Felt, Rubik’s Cube, and swimming pool brand Intex are sold under the John Adams banner. Founded almost 50 years ago, the Cambridgeshire company merged with Toy Brokers in 2009 after managing director Simon Pilkington, 49, led a buyout of both businesses. It sells through a network of independent retailers as well as the likes of Amazon and Argos. An expanding range of products helped profits reach £4.8m in 2014.
