Fuzzy Felt :: Toy Brokers

"Make amusing pictures with gaily coloured felt shapes!"

Fuzzy Felt were produced by Allan Industries from 1950 onwards and were felt shapes which clung to a fuzzy board for endless picture variations. They reached their height of poplarity in the 1970's and are still going strong today, with old and new sets now produced by John Adams/Toy Broker.

Toy Brokers

Toy Brokers took over production around 2006, producing lots of new sets. The company then merged with John Adams in 2009, who and took over production of Fuzzy Felt first still under the "Toy Brokers" name, then under their own.

This page has the sets produced solely Toy Brokers before being merged with John Adams. All packaging produced solely by Toy Brokers featured the running man character, whereas after the merger they had a slightly different "Fuzzy Felt" and "Toy Brokers" logo (see the John Adams page for more information and images of these sets).
