International Track 200

Toy brands Fuzzy Felt, Rubik’s Cube, Tiny Tears 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 distributors across Europe as well as the likes of Amazon and Argos. An expanding product range helped international sales reach £2.9m in 2015.
