Retailer of the Month October 2015

We are always encouraging our toy retailers to integrate in the local as much as possible, promoting the importance of PLAY in the early years of child development. It’s great to find stores that share our passion for this and Melton Toys and their staff participating regularly in their towns local events.


“Melton Toys doesn’t just limited themselves to their bricks and mortar premises, Director, James Colclough takes his shop ‘on the road’ at every opportunity getting involved in many local events. I love their ethos and enthusiasm to go that extra mile for their customers!”

– Lucy Moody, Head of Retail Relations at Fundamentally Children

Melton Toys was launched by James Colclough in November 2009. Occupying one of the oldest buildings in Melton Mowbray, Melton Toys are well known for their involvement in many local events. From tug-of-war and Pony Club competitions to Christmas fairs, and when Melton Mowbray turns into the seaside for the day they are there to help bring a point of difference to the town centre shopping experience and most importantly, have some fun!

“We don’t use training manuals and tight procedures to give great customer service at Melton Toys, it’s just what happens when a team enjoys what they do and has a passion for getting things right.“

– James Colclough, Owner
