About Us

Brainstorm is a leading supplier of fun and educational toys, gadgets and gifts. We have a reputation for high-quality, unique products and are proud to be a trade-only supplier; Brainstorm does not have its own retail platform.

In 2002 we purchased The Original Glowstars Company. Well-known in the nineties for introducing paper Glowstars to the nation, the brand was much-loved but in need of an overhaul. In 2007 the brand was brought up to date. It still has the old favourites, now sitting alongside new and exciting Glow Kits, Glow Glitter Stars, Glow 3D, Cosmic Glow and Glow Morph.

2011 saw the launch of our fascinating Brainstorm Toys range of fun, interactive, toys, designed not only to entertain children but also to inspire them to learn more about their environment. 

In 2012 we added exciting new items to augment our established, successful brands: Brainstorm Toys; The Original Glowstars Company and Natural History Museum. Plus we are now proud to be the exclusive distributor for the award winning Aqua Dragons range of live pre-historic creatures, the fun magnetic pocket money line; Magno-Z and in 2015 we launch FoameeZ our amazing new bubbles product.

Brainstorm has been in business since 1995 and is owned by three directors who work full time for the business. With our excellent UK-based sales and logistics team, we distribute our items all over the world either from our UK warehouse or direct from China.
