  Company Info

On November 1, 2005, the assets of Art’s Toy were sold to Artistic Toy Manufacturing, Inc. Art’s Toy was founded by Art Ravitz in 1976 and operated as Art’s Toy Manufacturing Company, Inc. through October 31, 2005.

Art’s Toy was formed out of the ambers of R&R Toy Manufacturing Company. S&R Toy Manufacturing was owned and operated by Sam and Ruth Ravitz for 30 years.  S&R Toy manufactured carnival toys in the United States with factories in New York, NY and Pen Argyl, PA. S&R had over 200 employees and supplied toys primarily to the carnival industry. R&R Toy encountered financial difficulties attributed to the loss of some major customers and decided to close its doors.

Sam and Ruth’s son Artie saw the opportunity of emerging markets in Korea and China, and pursued customers that needed promotional stuffed animals in large orders.  Through the 1980’s, Art’s Toy continued to manufacture toys in the few remaining factories in New York City; however, by the middle of the 1990s, all of the toys manufactured were imported from Korea or China. 

At about the same time Art’s Toy began importing 99% of its promotional toys, it also explored opportunities in the developing promotional products industry by joining Advertising Specialty Institute (ASI), one the premier promotional products trade organizations.

Artistic Toy currently imports 99% of its promotional stuffed animals from China and is a member of almost all the major promotional product trade organizations.
