    I am after some wholesale novelty toys (the type you find in lucky dips) I am finding it hard to find wholesalers who are willing to help. The first wholesalers I found had some great stuff on their website and when we contacted them for prices, we were told that half the stuff they were advertising were sold out until Christmas!

    The second wholesalers that looked promising has problems with their website’s contact functions. We kept trying to sign up for a wholesaler login, with no luck. Rung them twice to tell them, hoping they would take down our details and manually register us, but we kept getting told to try again in 15 minutes. A week later still no luck so they have lost my business. These companies are two big names in novelty toys too!

    Sorry I had to rant; I hate dealing with unprofessional businesses.

    Does anyone have a good source for getting novelty toys?

    thanks in advance for any help

    Never fails to amaze me how badly some businesses are run!
    I might be able to help you – what age bracket are you looking for?
    Do you have a number limit and how soon are you after the items?

    Boys and Girls options or generic gender toys?

    Sorry can’t help you in the wholesalers department but just wanted to validate you rant in saying just because companies are “BIG” it doesn’t mean that they can give bad service (which at times unfortunately they do) and potentially lose a future customer – just like in your instance . I hope you get some genuine help from the forums . Good Luck!

    If you’re after smaller quantities of each thing, eg. 50-100 rather than a whole crate, try searching ebay for wholesale / bulk lots.

    I tried Aussie wholesalers and to be honest the prices are tooooooooo high for wholesale

    small items sold for $2 wholesale in Australia you can get for 25c overseas and it’s the same product

    I now have suppliers in the USA (2 of them) and 1 in Taiwan which I use when I really need certain items because only 1 guy at the factory speaks english I have buy magic tricks for kids parties, showbags, box sets etc

    My belief is that if you can buy direct from the manufacturer you literally save thousands, Aussie wholesalers put to much on top of the wholesale fee, plus to be honest your dealing with the middle man if your dealing with an aussie wholesaler unless they are the manufacturer.

    I am sure I will cop some flack here but this is business
