- in Worth Noting

The Simplay3 Company, an Ohio-based manufacturer of children’s toys as well as home products, will be exhibiting at the 2020 Toy Fair in New York City. Not only will Simplay3 be attending, but its founder, Tom Murdough, will be inducted into the Toy Industry Hall of Fame.

Even though Simplay3 is only four years old, the company was built upon a strong legacy. Murdough and his teams have been contributing to the toy world for 50 years. When starting Little Tikes in 1970, Murdough pioneered the use of the rotational molding process to make toys. After the sale of Little Tikes in 1984, he moved on to start his second company, Step2. After a brief retirement in 2006, he returned to the Toy business to create Simplay3 in 2016.

“I believe in the ingenuity and work ethic of our committed American workers to produce great products and then see them succeed in the marketplace,” Murdoughs says.

He will be honored next week in conjunction with the Toy of The Year Awards as he is inducted into the 2020 Toy Industry Hall of Fame.

Toy Fair will take place Feb. 22-25. Simplay3 will have its toy line on display, including top sellers for 2019 such as the Rock Around Wobble Disk, Rock & Roll Teeter Totter, Table Toddler Tower Adjustable Stool, the Young Explorers Adventure Climber, the Carry & Go Track, and many more original concepts. Simplay3 also will unveil new designs in store for 2020.

Simplay3 was founded in 2016 in Streetsboro, Ohio. Simplay3 is a veteran-owned, American manufacturer of children’s products as well as an extensive line of mailboxes and home & garden products. Simplay3 products for kids and grown-ups can be purchased on the company website, on Amazon Marketplace, and at most major retailers.
