Amid the yearly updates on the retail giant’s strategic initiatives, key focus areas, future growth strategies, Walmart issues its Supplier of the year Awards to leading suppliers in each major product category.

Moose Toys scored the top honor as the 2020 Walmart Toy Supplier of the Year.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized with this award by Walmart who continues to be one of our most valued global partners,” says Glenn Abell, president, Moose Toys USA. “Moose first received Walmart’s Toy Supplier of the Year award in 2015, and I am so proud of the hard work and dedication that has put Moose in a position to be recognized again as Toy Supplier of the Year for 2020.”
