Not all of our great brands started within the United Kingdom and, as in the case of Smyths Toy Superstores, many actually come from our neighbours in Ireland. When it comes to Christmas and birthdays, we can always rely on Smyths for fun gifts and this has been the case since 1985. With their headquarters in Galway, they recently surpassed 100 stores across the UK and Ireland.
Over time, Smyths has grown in size and they can now be seen on many TV adverts as well as the regular brochures they post through the nation's doors. Although they don't quite match up to the supermarkets and haven't reached every corner of the UK, they have still gained in popularity steadily through the years and there is nothing to stop them from continuing on this trend looking forward.
