Far Out Toys was started in 2017 with a single mission — to create innovative toys. In just two years, its vision was realized with a full line of products represented across Walmart, Target, and Amazon. One of those lines, Crash Racers, is already a multi-million dollar business. Meggs built the company specifically to navigate the new retail landscape. This includes a focus on full product development, such as the creation of a nimble manufacturing and marketing network, and building licensing partnerships with top brands, including NASCAR, pocket.watch for Ryan’s World, and Disney for Marvel and Star Wars Pulp Heroes.
Meggs, whose family connections span three generations working at Mattel, discusses the origin of Far Out Toys and the unique proposition that the companies offer the market, including brands such as Head Splat, Splash Out, and the aforementioned Pulp Heroes.
