“If we can do anything to inspire and encourage people to get back to playing together more, then we’ve done something meaningful and worthwhile.” –Bob Wann, Chief PlayMonster Who We Are PlayMonster is a toy and game company, championing the power of play by creating quality toys and games for children, adults and families. We're the perfect combination of playful and professional, and true play experts because we understand play for ALL AGES! What We Do We make toys and games. Sounds simple, right? Well, it is and it isn't. Toys and games have the ability to make a difference in people's lives, if they have great play value that creates interaction and inspires continual play. Our goal is for our toys and games to be all that and more. So that's what we do...we work to keep play alive for all ages. It's a big job, and we love it! When We Began PlayMonster started life as Patch Products in 1985, founded by brothers Fran and Bryce Patch. Children's puzzles were our specialty, but we quickly grew to add games and toys. Throughout the years, we acquired other companies and expanded our product line to offer lots of different products for children and adults! In 2014, the company changed ownership, which gave us greater opportunity to grow! Our continued growth led to the big name change and re-branding of the company in 2016 to better reflect our playful culture and belief in the power of play! At PlayMonster, we're proud of our history and excited about our future! Where We Play Our home base is in Beloit, WI. We're about an hour from Madison or Milwaukee, and situated between Janesville, WI and Rockford, IL. We love our community here! We've got tons of fun stuff to do, but it's also quite homey, too...best of both worlds! You can find our games and toys all throughout the US, plus in Canada, Europe, Mexico, Asia, Australia and more! We're across the globe, and we have great international partners! Why We Have Fun What kind of game and toy company would we be if we didn't have fun? We love our products: we make them and we play with them, and we give them to our own families and friends. We spread the power of play, and that starts by being playful at work!
