BALTIMORE, MD -- A&A Global Industries has announced its completion of an asset purchase of Play Time Toys (Orlando, FL). Play Time specializes in plush and redemption merchandise.


“Over the last 10 years it has been a goal of mine to make an indelible impression on the redemption industry,” said Play Time Toys founder Dawn Noyes. “We have done just that. To bring our company to the next level and provide our customers with the best products and services possible, it was only natural to hand-off our company to A&A. They have the experience, capability and technology so desperately needed by our customers.” 


Brian Kovens, co-president of A&A, made it clear that “we have no plans in the immediate future to make any changes to the Play Time Toys’ business model, with the exception of adding our existing products and services. The first changes will be consolidating telephone numbers to make communications with customers and the A&A team more efficient.”


“The synergies between our companies are outstanding,” Noyes observed. “Teaming up to combine both companies’ strengths is a win-win for everyone.”


Founded by Noyes more than a quarter-century ago, Play Time Toys specializes in the large Florida marketplace rich with family entertainment centers. The organization offers a wide range of plush, novelty products and capsule kits for amusement locations and redemption prize machines. Placing strong emphasis on customer service, Play Time Toys credits its success to building and maintaining relationships with its customers.


Family-owned and operated, A&A has been making kids happy since 1938 through innovative products and a commitment to unmatched service. Experiencing tremendous growth, the company focuses on an extensive merchandise line of more than 7,000 products for the vending and amusement industries. A&A also provides a robust website with tools for redemption centers, digital packing lists and a host of other tools for their customers. A&A presently maintains two shipping points (Baltimore and Los Angeles); it now is adding a third in Orlando for Play Time products.
